Oregon governor threatening more restrictions due to these Wuhan virus numbers that are…well, see for yourself

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (demorat) is threatening more restrictions to the citizens due to the Wuhan virus. From yesterday:

I looked last night at the Oregon Wuhan virus numbers and guess what you’ll find? A whole lot of NOTHING. Take a look:

Population of Oregon: 4,217,737.

Total Wuhan virus cases: 24,421.

Total deaths: 414.

Total tests: 510,100. Negative tests: 486,9000. Positive tests: 23,156. Total hospitalized: 1,984.

Based on the numbers, percentages and “the curve,” why in the world is this governor threatening to shut down businesses again and mandate that people quarantine?

Apparently she believes the infection rate it too high. Governor Brown has determined that the test positivity rate must be at 5% or lower in order to meet HER public health metrics.

Read all about her rationale for re-starting restrictions in Oregon and possibly delaying opening schools (until April 2021!) here.

Most states would be perfectly fine with a Wuhan virus positivity rate of 5, 7, 8 or 10 percent. In Oklahoma we’re at a 7.3% positive rate. We’ve been open since May thanks to our republican governor.

Viruses are going to virus. There’s only so much the government can do to control Wuhan.

But as we are seeing, there’s MUCH more demorat governors can do to control the people.

Liberal utopia of Oregon: State ranked 49th in U.S. graduation rate in 2017

Oregon Governor Kate Brown

Despite a massive education budget that is 13% of their total $37 billion state budget, Oregon has lousy results when it comes to getting kids to graduate. They rank 49th in the nation.

One of the problems is that dollars invested in education aren’t going to the classroom, they are going toward ever increasing Public Employee Retirement System (PERS), healthcare benefits and salaries. Read about the disastrous state of that program (over $22 BILLION in unfunded liabilities) here.

Despite the current situation of education in Oregon, the National Education Association (NEA) endorsed demorat Governor Kate Brown for re-election last year (she won). Excerpts from the NEA endorsement:

“Throughout her career, Kate has pushed for high-quality public education at every level—from increasing the number of preschool students to improving high school graduation rates to expanding access to technical education for adults. Understanding that reasonable class-sized lead to increased student success, Kate has proposed using additional funding to drop kindergarten class sized from an average of 22 to 20, and grades 2-3 down to 23 students per class. Kate…understands that attracting the best educators leads to student achievement.

Good luck in re-electing a governor that got you to the rank of 49th, Oregon. Maybe you’ll get up to 48th or 47th rank next year.

A recent story from Oregon Live outlines how great the state of Oregon is in educating the kids. From their story:

Oregon’s graduation rate for the class of 2017 ranks No. 49 in the nation, the federal government announced Thursday. Oregon’s rate — 77 percent — was the lowest of any state except New Mexico, where the rate was a paltry 71 percent.

Nevada, which had previously trailed Oregon, leap-frogged ahead and achieved an 81 percent on-time graduation rate, the U.S. Department of Education said.

Nevada’s big increase occurred after the state dropped its longstanding requirement that students pass exams on reading, writing, math and science to get a diploma. Oregon does not require students to pass such exams to graduate.

The new federal report does not indicate how Oregon’s most current graduation rate — 79 percent for the class of 2018 — compares to other states’.

It was a coincidence that the National Center for Education Statistics announced the state-by-state rates and new U.S. average graduation rate — 84.6 percent — for the class of 2017 on the same day that Oregon officials announced the state’s graduation rate for the class of 2018.

State officials crowed about the improvement Oregon schools brought about from 2017 to 2018, with increases of 2 percentage points or more for Latino, Native American and white students, for low-income students and for girls and for boys.

The news was not as bright in the latest federal report for the class of 2017. The national graduation rate increased just 0.5 percentage points, the most tepid improvement since 2011. Five states achieved graduation rates of at least 90 percent, led by Iowa and New Jersey at 91 percent.”

Oregon approves measure requiring insurers to cover abortion

unborn baby

“No cost” for abortion…

From Fox News: Insurance companies in Oregon would be required to cover abortions and other reproductive services at no cost to the patient regardless of income, citizenship status or gender identity under a measure approved Wednesday by lawmakers.
Oregon already has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the U.S., leaving out otherwise common requirements for waiting periods or spending limits on taxpayer funds.
The measure, which does offer some religious-based exemptions, comes as the federal government and other states are seeking restrictions on abortion services.
President Donald Trump earlier this year signed legislation allowing states to withhold federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. In May, the Texas Legislature approved a sweeping package of new abortion limits.
Oregon’s legislation has been in the making for years but was introduced in early March largely in response to Republican congressional leaders’ earliest attempts to repeal former President Barack Obama’s health care law, which includes minimum coverage requirements for birth control and other reproductive services.
The Democratic-controlled Oregon Senate approved the measure in a 17-13 vote along party lines. It now heads to Democratic Gov. Kate Brown.
The bill would also allocate almost $500,000 over the next two years to expand cost-free reproductive health coverage, including abortions, to immigrants who are otherwise ineligible for Medicaid.
