Fact #1: Our state spending went up 21% in '07-'08, will climb $2 billion, or 4%, in '08-'09 with this budget. Anyone in this state increased their household spending 25% over the last 2 years?
Fact#2 Oregon will have the 2nd highest income tax in the nation: ahead of CA (10.55%) and slightly behind NYCity (12.96%).
