Given the cuts to the Wyoming Departments of Health and Family Services already made by Governor Gordon, how would you immediately protect the most vulnerable among us?

Do you support any legislation that may come before the 2021 session of the Legislature that could result in raising revenue? Please explain.

What is your position on “Medicaid expansion” that allows low-income adults to be eligible for healthcare coverage with 90% funding from the Federal government and 10% funding from the State?

Graduate US Naval Academy, BS Oceanography; MSE Catholic University of America 2000. 30 years active duty in Nuclear Submarine force. Commanded a Nuclear Ballistic Missile Submarine. Served in Washington DC and observed Congress, didn't like the process and so began observing Wyoming's Legislature in 2005, attending the entirety of sessions. Have observed Education, Military Affairs, and Judicary committees closely. Began speaking in Public Comment about 2009.
When large reductions in funding are made, one must not simpy apply them across all programs equally. Certain elements of major departments must be looked at and certain reuctions ameliorated.
I stand against new taxes. Since a 100% cut in State Programs cannot fix the budget problems, a method will need to be found. An increase in the state sales tax is quick to put in place, involves no new bureaucracy, and can be reduced later with little fanfare.
The legislature has addressed this in past years. In the end the crux of their rejection has lain in a distruct of the federal governments reliability in follow on years. When that can be fixed it may go forward.
