We all get the warm fuzzies, don’t we, when the auto mechanic confidently assures us he knows the cause of our car’s clunking, that it can be fixed by end of day and it will only cost a small amount? Sure; but then hope and reality clash when the work starts. Taking a look under the hood, the mechanic decides whatever it is, it’s going to take longer and it’s going to cost more – a lot more.
When recently asked over 65% of Wyoming citizens said they would be more likely to support a candidate for public office who had signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Why?

Listen in as Amy Edmonds talks with John Birbari about the pledge.
Every year, Wyoming taxpayers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on Medicaid. Yet we have little to say in its management.

Amy Edmonds speaks with KGAB’s Gary Freeman about education in Wyoming. Is Wyoming truly getting what it pays for when it comes to public education?

Amy Edmonds spoke with Chuck Gray on his radio show Tuesday and discussed why Education Savings Accounts will help improve the state's budget woes and provide much needed school choice options throughout the state. Education Savings Accounts are funded through a voluntary tax credit and then awarded to means tested Wyoming families and would provide $8000 per child for their education. Wyoming currently spends over $16,000 per child on public education. This plan would provide a savings of half that cost. Listen as Amy and Chuck discuss the details.
Amy Edmonds joins John Birbari on KVOW Riverton Radio to talk about Wyoming K-12 spending and education results over the past 20 years. While Wyoming education spending has skyrocketed, education results have not kept pace.
