No sales tax. No. Never. But, what if we added a tax to certain unhealthful activities such as eating junk food? Add a nickle to each bag of cheetos, or hamburger or soft drink purchased and, believe me, the money would flow into Oregon's coffers. If obesity is becoming the number one health problem in America, and if Oregon is suffering budget constraints, why not try to reduce one and help the other?
I would also like to say we should not send out kicker checks but instead boost the rainy day fund for just these times.
