Oregon Governor Kate Brown Lends Hand To Tax Hike Campaign

“Kate Brown’s slipperiness on Initiative Petition 28 doesn’t shout “governor material.” Someone who seeks election to the state’s highest office ought to tell voters where she stands on the biggest tax hike in state history and the most significant ballot initiative in recent memory. Yet Kate Brown keeps ducking.” The Legislative Revenue Office noted, among other things, that the tax would slow the growth in private-sector employment and behave much like a sales tax, reducing annual income by hundreds of dollars even for people making less than $21,000 per year. Good luck selling that to voters.
