RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
With the passage of measures 66 & 67, it seems like perhaps Oregonians are facing the reality that the state's budget money needs to come from somewhere. I would like to see the idea of a limited (excludes food and others necessities) sales tax put back on the table. I would much prefer this as I would feel it was more of a personal choice--rather than having no choice with the state keeping my kicker (if I'm understanding the kicker issue correctly). Additionally, a sales tax would provide a tool that could gather money from everyone who comes through Oregon on vacations or business travel, thereby spreading the tax "burden" to more than just the many financially strapped Oregonians.
