Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

  • Deficit and the Economy
Excerpt: "Americans spend over $431 billion a year in income tax preparation and administration costs. The Mercatus Center estimates this cost to be as high as $987 billion. This is 40% of our total revenue in 2012. These dollars could be used for more productive activities to create jobs and revenue."
  • Increasing the Influence of "We the People" in Washington
Excerpt: "Responsive government comes from input from the people. The more informed the people are, the more accountable our representatives are held. Right now, it is a slog to find out what policies are being proposed and the pros and cons of these pieces of legislation."
