Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Ose's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

  • Putting Our Community First, not the Special Interests: "Our economy is stalled by sluggish growth and one of the slowest recoveries in history. It simply isn’t providing enough opportunity for Americans who need to find a job, expand their business or hire more workers. Full time employment is becoming harder to find with the advent of Obamacare, and employers are shifting to more part-time workers."
  • Drought/Protecting Local Water Supply: "We have a real water crisis here in the Sacramento region. While man has no control over Mother Nature, poor management practices and government’s failure to build sufficient upstream retention facilities have made our region’s drought even worse. When it was predicted that California’s population was to grow by millions of people, having a shortage of local water was foreseeable."
  • Reducing the Tax Burden: "America’s complicated and contradictory tax system benefits the politically connected at the expense of people who work hard and play by the rules. Every year, Americans are asked to pay more in taxes and receive less in public services. The federal government is now borrowing 40 cents of every dollar to sustain unprecedented deficit spending."
  • Holding Government Accountable: "Government spending is growing at a record pace under President Obama. Our nation’s debt is out of control. This unsustainable and reckless spending puts our financial security at risk, and burdens the American taxpayer more every day. It’s time to hold government accountable for the money it spends and the decisions it makes."
  • Our Schools: Local Control, World-Class Standards: "Every school must be a place where every student can learn. And without world-class standards in school, America’s future is threatened. That is why education decisions must be made by parents and local school boards, not bureaucrats in Washington, D.C."
