I'm intrigued that the Governor and Legislature thinks they are forced to take the path they are taking. Why, when the economy goes bad, do they always think of cutting the resources of the poor and middle class, who didn't cause the problem) by lowering salaries and cutting jobs rather than solving the problem with taxes on the rich, who benefit most by the economy and actually caused the problem?
Do we no longer really have a Democratic party in Oregon? Are they not in control of both the legislature and the Governor's office? They did the same stupid think when they were in control in 1981. We had 10 years of a down Oregon economy after that. Didn't they learn anything?
