Our incumbent representative Duane Quam continues to mislead voters about his record on the budget. He says they balanced the budget responsibly and created a budget surplus. This isn't true. First of all, the budget was not balanced responsibly. It relied on more borrowing than in any state budget in state history, including a record $2.4 billion that they borrowed from our schools. And since their budget included no plan to pay back the schools, we face another multi-billion dollar deficit next year - hardly responsible, definitely no budget surplus.
How are we going to solve our state's budget problems if our incumbent legislators won't even be honest with us about basic budget math? The answer is actually quite easy. It's time for incumbent legislators like Duane Quam to go and time for us to elect new legislators to solve our state's budget in a way that's honest and makes sense. I'm voting for John Vossen to represent me in House District 25A.
