MY DECISION MAKING FRAMEWORK -- THE "CORE FOUR"
Over the years, I've developed a four-part test that guides my decision making process on legislative issues. It's called the Core Four Framework.
Before I decide on a legislative issue, I always ask myself these four questions:
1. Does this legislation match up with my Christian world-view and my Christian values?
2. Does this legislation pass Constitutional muster?
3. Is this a core function of Government that is necessary and affordable?
4. Will this legislation promote free markets and limited government?
Those are the filters I use to help determine where I stand on the issues at the Capitol.
