Newsletter: Jim’s 2017 in Review
Happy New Year! I hope you had a refreshing and wonderful holiday season. Thank you for your support over this year, here’s some of my highlights. I put tens of thousands of miles on my Prius this past year. In 2017 I presented at, spoke to, joined in, and learned from 181+ engagements. These included marches […]
Social Security; a word from Jim
The maximum amount of wages subject to the Social Security tax is $127,200. I would propose that there be no cap on the maximum amount of taxable earnings so that all taxable earnings are subject to the social security tax. This would mean that everyone pays the same percentage of their earnings into Social Security. […]

Young people are the bearers of hope and energy that will propel us forward. They are our future leaders and humanitarians and are vital to our political process. In giving the government back to the people, young people will see that their voices do matter and make a difference. Our nation’s youth now bear burdens that older generations did not have to deal with, and this has and will cause unnecessary economic distress. There is so much we can do to alleviate this, and ensure that our youth remain the hopeful, positive and vigorous people they are far into adulthood.

I signed the pledge to support HR 3671 (which lays out a path to transition away from fossil fuels, to 100% clean energy, by 2035), when elected, because I absolutely believe that climate change is real, that it is man-made and my biggest fear is that we are already too late to keep the global temperature rise under two degrees Celsius. Climate change will adversely affect agriculture, our forests and low lying coastal cities. We no longer have the luxury of dithering and procrastinating on dealing with climate change. We must act immediately and aggressively to get off fossil fuels and HR 3671 lays out a clear and viable way to do that. -Jim Pledge: https://www.foodandwateractionfund.org/content/elected-official-pledge HR 3671: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/3671
Jim will be speaking for a few minutes at the Josephine County Dems Meeting, Meet & Greet at 6:30pm & Meeting at 7:00pm.
To accomplish big things one needs to dream big. We used to dream big but, in the past 30 years, we seem to have lost that ability. Dreaming big: · put a man on the Moon; · built the Interstate highways; and · built dams on the Colorado, Missouri and Columbia rivers. Dreaming big not only gave us tangible assets but also provided lots of good paying jobs. Here are two of my big dreams: 1. Placing solar panel roofs over our highways and railroads. This would: a. Contribute an enormous amount of clean, renewable energy to help us get off of fossil fuels; b. Be cheaper than placing solar farms on private land because the land is public; c. Create many well paying engineering, manufacturing and construction jobs; d. Allow easy tie-in into the grid because electric transmission lines often run next to highways and railways; e. Improve vehicle efficiency because vehicles would use less air conditioning; f. reduce potholes, snowplowing and black ice by keeping more rain and snow off the roads. 2. Put solar on every rooftop. I would like to see tax incentives and grants that would put rooftop solar on every rooftop. Not only would this help us get off of fossil fuels more quickly and create many good paying jobs but it would also help people save money on their monthly electric bill and could also help them save money on their motor vehicle fuel bill if they drove an electric vehicle. Some people may call these ideas "pie in the sky" or unrealistic. I would simply reply they are in the same vein as the ideas that made America the envy of the world.
