GoSkagit.com: Larsen to face Republican challenger Koster

Republican Snohomish County Councilman John Koster announced today that he will challenge U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, a Democrat from Everett, for the 2nd Congressional District seat.

Koster, who ran for the same seat unsuccessfully in 2000, served three terms in the state House and has served on the Snohomish County Council since 2001.

In a statement announcing his candidacy, Koster attacked Larsen’s “socialist agenda” and labeled the five-term congressman a “puppet of the Peolsi-Reid Congress.”

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
