Apply a federal tax to Marijuana sales and write into law a requirement to reinvest that tax revenue in ways that directly benefit those that have been excessively criminalized by the prohibition of marijuana:
Approximately 65% of the revenue should be used to loan down payments for low income Americans to purchase homes. Work with lenders on implementing this program to build equity and endless cycle of renting
15% of the revenue will go towards combatting the opioid crisis
20% will be spent on police equipment, body cameras, training and other resources
The Federal tax will expire after 25 years with the option for congress to renew
Promises to the Citizens of Wisconsin
I will uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. I will nominate judges who interpret the letter of the law, not their feelings on the subject from the bench. I will nominate administrators, secretaries and leaders who have the American people’s best interest at heart.
I will never run from you. I will never hide. I will hold town halls. My office will respond to your calls and letters. I am YOUR public SERVANT. I will never run from you.
I will never vote for or against something based on how it hurts or helps my re-election. I won’t change my vote late because that benefits my investment portfolio. My family and I have very little personal wealth or connections, so there is no way for me to enrich myself or my family. I will vote in the best interest of the largest majority of Wisconsinites.
I will always fight for your taxes to be as low as possible. I believe that the Federal Government is entitled to 0% of your income, but makes a decision to steal a certain percentage for the benefit of the commonwealth, not 100% and makes the decision to let you keep a certain percentage.
I will work with the major networks and social media outlets to hold as many public debates and discussions as possible so the American people can hear first-hand from legislators and leaders on the issues. Many times folks say “We need a national conversation on that…” Well, you’re about to get it and I will be your humble moderator.
I will support the environment and work to nominate non-partisan environmental administrators. Hunters, fisherman and anyone that enjoys the beautiful outdoors in this state deserve to have the environment maintained.
I will work to change the end goals of education in this country so that the result is putting our youth in a position to earn a living wage and be self-sustaining in their personal affairs. Expand vocational training and start that process at a much earlier age. Advertise the benefits, skills gained and discipline learned as a result of military service. No longer will we release our youth into society at 18 without a skill to put food on the table or a plan to pursue more education that will then allow them to earn a living wage.
I will provide the most transparency possible to the American people on the Federal Government’s information gathering capabilities and record storing procedures in regards to individual privacy rights.
We will not agree every time, but I promise to honorably represent and fight just as hard for the people that DO NOT vote for me as those that do and work towards bi-partisan solutions as often as possible.
