Lies From Knute

Republican Knute Buehler is telling people what they want to hear to get their votes, but his record on Oregon’s most pressing issues tells a very different story.

Voters deserve to know that Buehler has a track record of saying one thing to get elected, and then doing the opposite. 

 

Health Care


Republican Knute Buehler is telling Oregonians he supports Medicaid, but he voted AGAINST funding Oregon’s Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, voting to take health care away from 80,000 Oregon kids and hundreds of thousands of families, including seniors and people with disabilities.

Environment


Republican Knute Buehler is trying to greenwash his image now that he’s running for Governor, but as a state legislator, Buehler made it easier for polluters to damage Oregon’s air quality, fought against incentives to lower vehicle emissions, and refused to protect the state’s public lands.

 

Reproductive Rights


Republican Knute Buehler is falsely claiming to be “100% pro-choice” to get votes from pro-choice Oregonians, but he brags to anti-choice voters that he fought against Gov. Brown’s efforts to expand access to reproductive rights.

Gun Safety


Republican Knute Buehler is frantically trying to rebrand himself as a moderate on gun safety issues, but his voting record as a legislator has earned him two “A ratings” from the NRA.

 

Education


Republican Knute Buehler is desperately trying to convince people he can help our schools, but teachers say his plan will actually move Oregon schools backward.

Housing


Republican Knute Buehler is trying to convince voters he knows how to end homelessness, but he consistently voted against measures to address Oregon’s affordable housing crisis.
