Democrats vs Republicans in Salem's Senate

Salem's priorities are twisted
SALEM, Ore.-Following a robust Floor session in the Senate, state Sen. Alan Olsen, R-Canby, released the following statement: 
"We saw today Democrats choose to force professors against their will to pay dues to Unions, while Republicans tried to protect professors' freedom of choice. Then, we saw Democrats choose to extend tax credits to politically-well connected energy corporations, just after Democrats voted to repeal the Grand Bargain and increase taxes on job providers with even less than ten workers. In the House, Republicans are fighting for the Legislature to honor its promises to veterans, while Democrats defend defunding them. House Democrats are also holding our education funding hostage, it's unacceptable. Oregonians are witnessing an unraveling of the credibility of this Legislature and the wave of outrage is growing. Oregonians deserve better than misplaced priorities: they want to see schools funded, roads paved, taxes halted, overspending stopped, and public safety protected. The era of lawlessness must end."
