Campaign themes

Oliver's website has emphasized the following campaign themes:[3]

Eliminate Federal programs such as Obamacare

  • Excerpt: "I would author a bill stating that the 'Affordable Care Act' is illegal in the State of Wisconsin, and assert the language of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution to nullify the law in this state. I'd also reference the fact that the Supremacy clause(article 6, section 2) holds the 'Affordable Car Act' as unconstitutional as well, since it wasn't a law made in 'pursuance' of the constitution, but was outside of it's scope."

Local control of local issues

  • Excerpt: "I will be a champion for our local voices while in Madison. I'll fight every intrusion into local rights when the State or Federal government tries to overstep its bounds. That said, I support an amendment to the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin that clearly spells out that ALL FEDERAL ACTS and LAWS that the State of Wisconsin determines as outside of powers delegated to the Federal Government by the U.S. Constitution are null and void based on the Tenth Amendment to the U. S. Constitution."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt "Our problem is spending. It's really very simple, if the government stops spending money, taxes can be lowered. When taxes are lower, we the people get to keep more of what we earn, and can spend it on things that we choose, not on what some bureaucrat decides."


  • Excerpt: " I'd like to see it be required policy that every bill introduced contains a clear statement at the top as to the author’s intent (in plain English) and a statement as to WHY the bill is needed. Everything contained in that bill should be germane to the introductory statements."
