I agree with Mr. Radamacher. The kicker, or any surplus, should be set aside for a rainy day; for years when there is a shortfall. I don't even think I've ever received a kicker check even though I've worked full-time in Oregon since 1995!
In a similar vein, could someone explain to me how The Oregon State Lottery can claim a "profit" of 450 million dollars in 2007 while our schools are cutting days, activities, and teachers' pay; ddollars for social services for our most vulnerable populations are slashed to bare minimum ??? Isn't the Lottery run by the State? Doesn't that money belong to the State? If not, who does it belong to?
