on Tax Measures
You can thank the OEA (of all people) for MIS-educating you. Sorry to hear you voted before doing your due diligence in researching the facts. That's exactly what the sneaks pushing for the yes vote are counting on, assuming all they have to fool is the majority of the products of their work, the graduates of the over-funded and under-performing Oregon public education system who have now become the voters.
If BM 67 was truly targeting the largest corporations getting away with minimal tax burdens as the TV ads characterize it, I'd vote for it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately that's NOT what it is. There is good cause for being angry at self-serving executives who flat out lied to their investors about risk levels, received taxpayer subsidies for outsourcing jobs, drove their companies into the ground, and rewarded themselves handsomely in the process, but BM 67 does absolutely nothing to address that problem.
