Keep abortion safe, legal, and rare in Minnesota. The Republican plan to ban abortion in Minnesota is unsafe for women and too extreme. For the budget and the bonding bill, I support a blend of tax rebates or some type of income tax cuts, like eliminating the social security income tax in Minnesota and investing in local schools and roads. Minnesota’s Social Security Income Tax is like lending your car to a friend to use for a while, and when he brings back your keys, he hands you a bill for using it right.
Voting integrity is key to our democracy. According to my county election officials, the sensational allegations that swirled around on social media in 2020 turned out to be mostly made up. However, I believe 5 people were convicted of voter fraud in Sherburne County. We need to seriously investigate voter fraud allegations to help preserve voting integrity. COVID taught many voters how to vote by mail. I feel we could provide more secured drop-off locations for vote-by-mail voters.
There are economic costs of racism. One study I read estimated that 6.1 million jobs were not generated over the past 20 years because of discrimination against Black people in areas including education, access to business loans, and housing credits. The MN House of Representatives can appropriate more resources to enforce anti-discrimination laws, investigate claims of discrimination, and impose harsher penalties for violations.
At the state level, we don’t have the levers of power to greatly impact inflation like say the Federal Reserve does. But we can target priorities like education and roads in the budget and bonding bills that will positively impact our economy today and in the future. COVID is over, so we shouldn’t provide any more stimulus checks. We can also help Minnesotans keep more money in their pocket by eliminating the Social Security Income Tax.
I’m a gun owner, strongly support the 2nd amendment, and I support “extreme risk” or “red flag” laws. These laws allow police, family members, or even doctors to petition a court to take away someone's firearms for up to a year if they feel that person is a threat to themselves or others. None of the proposals I have seen would impact my right to keep and bear arms nor any of my 2nd amendment friends or supporters. If it did, I couldn’t support it.
