All the latest news, press releases, and commentary from Heidi E. Scheuermann.

“Women’s issues are economic issues. They are public safety issues. They are tax issues. They are education issues. They are health care issues. They run the gamut, and to put women all in one box diminishes the importance of all of the issues for women,” she (Scheuermann) said.

Scheuermann said the system doesn't serve taxpayers well.  "I don't understand the economics behind the yield, and I don't think the public understands what a yield is," she said.  "Taxpayers should understand what they are paying for and why, and understand the system itself, and that is clearly not the case."
