Mark Haas' argument that the tax increases are necessary as an emergency response is specious at best. Oregon's public education sector was struggling and debilitated long before this latest financial crisis. We need to increase the corporate tax permanently, suppress the kicker at least temporarily but with the overall goal of overthrowing it, and consider other ways to shift the burden from a small pool of individuals to bigger groups (yes, we should review the idea of a sales tax).
I will not support any further cuts to education. Those who are against revenue increases should come up with some good solutions.
