He spoke to a class Tuesday to get a feel for what's on their minds.
First and foremost is the threat of another government shutdown.
He told the kids he doesn't think we'll go through this again come January and February.
"The country is not going to stand for this happening again. Anyone who is running for election in 2014, if we would have a second government shutdown would have a real challenge. We lost billions in the shutdown. And the jobs numbers came out and they were not what we expected and they attribute that to the shutdown."
Senator Wyden also visited Ridgeview High School in Redmond to talk with students there.
He plans to visit 11 high schools in the state as part of his "Listening to the Future" tour.
