Richardson thinks the Common Core came from the Federal governemnt. Like Bobby Jindal, he forgets that this came from the statesand even better answer on the disfunction of the Oregon property tax system by the Governor...Kitzhaber made great point on benefit loss to women as they move up the income scale...not widely understood and worthy target of actionglad the city club debate (discussion) is turning to substantive issues... Kitzhaber support to repeal ban on inclusionary zoning is a start

@robwdavis Outrageous that Forest Service even considers denying media access to public lands, who gets access, and how much to charge themLet's get this right rather than repeal #Obamacare another 50 times @nytopinion #ACAWe need to get our priorities straight.
