Courage for Change
Mark is running for Congress because he sees that entrenched politicians seem to be more concerned with keeping their jobs than having the courage to do what is right for America. Dissatisfied with the incumbent's passive attitude toward the Administration's assault on our Constitution, Mark decided he had to challenge the status-quo:
To restore our Constitution. As required by Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution, "Members of Congress shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." This oath states in part "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic." Our current Representative has not lived up to this oath. Instead, he has chosen to ignore numerous impeachable offenses.
To hold this Administration accountable for its crimes. Our rights and freedoms have been eroded in the name of fear. For the future of our country, it is critical that it be demonstrated that no one is above the law. As your Representative in Congress Mark Welyczko will stand up for what our forefathers fought so hard for.
To get the US out of Iraq, responsibly. We need to stop funding the occupation and start funding the return of our troops to their families.
Health Care: There is no legitimate rational reason for Americans not to have Universal, Single Payer, Not-forprofit Health Care.
Environment: Protect Oregon's ancient forests and clean water. Invest in clean, renewable energy to curb climate change, free us from oil dependence, and create millions of new Green Collar Living Wage jobs.
Publicly Financed Elections: Get influence of big business out of Government.
Public School to include College: Higher education equals higher wages and stronger economy.
