Reprinted from Concerned Citizens of Today:
After reading over a post by Red Stater about where certain Democrats stand on the issues, I got a little interested in how our illustrous (sort of) governor here in Oklahoma stands on some other important issues so I checked it out. Here is what I found:
"Abortions should be legal when the pregnancy resulted from incest or rape."
"Abortions should be legal when the life of the woman is endangered."
"I am pro-choice because I feel this is a deeply personal choice that the government should not be involved in. I do oppose late-term abortions unless the woman's life is in danger."
In 2004, he supported a law that soon became the national model in the war on meth. By restricting over-the-counter sales of a key meth ingredient, pseudoephedrine, Henry helped shut down meth labs across the state. Many other states and the federal government copied Oklahoma's law.
Build the best possible public schools & universities.
Passed a lottery 100% dedicated to education.
Raise teacher pay.
Henry is an advocate for gun rights. He is a member of the National Rifle Association and has received 'A+' ratings from the ORA and NRA.
Make quality health care more accessible and affordable.
He spearheaded efforts to raise the tobacco tax and change the health attitutdes of Oklahomans.
Helped enact a new ban on smoking in public areas.
Henry implemented both targeted and broad-based tax relief throughout his time in office, including the two largest tax cuts in state history. In June 2006, he signed legislation to decrease the personal income tax rate from 6.25% to 5.5%, with further decreases possible.
