Tax the Rich!
What a novel concept:
Yesterday Oregon voters delivered a huge victory for progressives by approving Measures 66 and 67, raising taxes on incomes over $250,000 and large corporations to generate $733 million to close the state's budget deficit. The Oregon legislature had approved the taxes last summer, but a corporate/teabagger alliance organized to put it to voters in a referendum.The 33 does give me pause. But with the elites running amok, a sure way to level the playing field somewhat is to make them pay some extra taxes.
