Been a while since I posted. This “real world” thing takes a lot more of my time than I thought it would.
Anyway, I’ve been watching the expected political ads this time of year, and one of them really strikes me. It is one where Ted Kulongoski brags about his accomplishments while in office, probably in response to Ron Saxton’s ad that claims that Kulongoski has not had any accomplishments that anyone can think of in 10 seconds.
At one point he says “we’ve added 30,000 children to the Oregon Health Plan.”
Mr. Governor, this is not an accomplishment. What’s the real accomplishment? You have labelled 30,000 more children as poor. You have done nothing to improve the economy or number of good jobs so that there are less children and families relying on the government. Nice job, Ted!
