Alexander.  He is the current Tulsa County GOP Chair, a member of the Owasso Taxpayers Alliance and part of Tulsa’s recent successful Stop Vision 2 effort.  J.B. is going to help us recharge our activist batteries by sharing with us exemplary David vs. Goliath grassroots wins!



Dr. Keith Smith, Oklahoma Surgical Center

Next, we are honored to be speaking with Keith Smith, MD of the Oklahoma Surgery Center.

“Three years ago, Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder and managing partner of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, took an initiative that would only be considered radical in the health care industry: He posted online a list of prices for 112 common surgical procedures. The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with the aim of creating a for-profit facility that could deliver first-rate care at a fraction of what traditional hospitals charge.”  Read more about Dr. Keith Smith and the Oklahoma Surgical Center; ‘Oklahoma Doctors vs. Obamacare’, Reason Magazine, Nov. 15, 2012

OCPA: Time to End Taxpayer Funding for the Native American Cultural and Education Authority

Oct. 22, 2012

By Jonathan Small, CPA

Findings in the performance audit of the Native American Cultural and Education Authority (NACEA) leave no doubt that it’s time to cease more taxpayer funding for the NACEA, and that lawmakers were right to reject another bond proposal. OCPA has previously recommended the end of more taxpayer funding for the NACEA. The findings of the performance audit are discouraging, especially considering that taxpayers have committed more than $112 million to the project to date.

This debacle is yet another example of what happens when government expands beyond its core functions. . .

Bills offer relief for Oklahoma wage earners


As labor commissioner, it is my duty to advance profitable employment opportunities for the wage earners of the Sooner State. That is why I am happy to report that relief is on the way.

Two courageous legislators, Sen. David Holt and Rep. Scott Martin, have introduced bills (Senate Bill 826 and House Bill 1576, respectively) that would restore equilibrium between the voters and their public servants. These legislators deserve the full support of citizens who believe in a just and sustainable society
