on Tax Measures
Beware of statistics! (Remember that old saying, Figures can lie and Liars can figure!)
Of course corporations are our 2nd largest source of revenue! That's because INDIVIDUAL TAXPAYERS are #1!
If Bill Gates and I were the only two people in a room, Yes, I would be the second wealthiest in that room -- even though his assests are vastly more than mine. But most would agree that the truthful statement that I am the second wealthiest in the room is sort of silly.
Same thing with saying that corporations are the second highest taxpayer in Oregon. What a crock!
