Issues

 

Fully Expanded Medicaid

How can Utah refuse to accept $750,000,000 in Utah taxpayer funds from the federal government? Why distribute these funds to surrounding states who have chosen to expand their Medicaid coverage? This is a no-brainer.


INSTEAD OF FAST GROWTH, FOCUS ON FOOD, SHELTER AND WELL-BEING


The place where we live is the fastest growing area in the nation. We have record unemployment (3.1%) and a thriving economy. Our government policies earned us the title of "best managed state" in the nation. From a business and economic standpoint, we are at the top.
So how can we have these troubling statistics concerning our well-being?
We have child poverty at 12%, food insecurity ("child hunger") at 19%, young people living at home is over 30%, suicide rate is 4 times the national average, an opioid addiction crisis, average wages at near the lowest in the nation and even lower for women. Food (one in five are hungry), shelter (one in three cannot afford a house) and well-being (crisis in suicide, opioids, lowest wages) are not consistent with this great economy.
Is it time to rethink the way we measure growth and prosperity?


GUN VIOLENCE IN OUR SCHOOLS

Michelle Malkin’s opinion piece on Feb. 22, “Do Not Let the Children Lead,” was particularly dismaying. This high school-led movement for reforming gun laws in our country is impressive. Adolescents are daring to draw a line in the sand that so many adults, especially our elected officials, have refused to address. Enough is enough! America’s gun laws are in serious need of reformation.  
Why is it that our young people are willing to carry the charge on this serious issue?
