Well I don't live in Oregon so I don't think it would matter. And when was the last time that a petition actually changed anything.

well that may be true but I still sent and email to the congressman spearheading this thing. I've been burned by the government many times before but it doesn't stop me from trying to be irritating.

There's a hearing scheduled for the 23rd. I think this is the fourth or fifth year ridiculous increases have been proposed. Odd how the "justification" for the rise changes every year, but the numbers don't. If they want to adjust the tax for inflation since 1977, that would be only a 255% increase.

Yeah I don't think I would really have a problem with adjusting for inflation but the fact that some people in the government want to increase it by 1900% is just obscene.

they were hoping no one would notice.


Luckily, some Oregon residents haven't fallen into a zombie-like stupor similar to that of the California Voter.

Oh I know a lot of pissed off people, I've been telling everyone I know about this plus it has gotten a ton of media coverage. The Green Dragon pub in Portland is having a Boston Tea party of sorts next Thursday to talk about the bill, write letters to congressmen, and have a ceremonial dumping of beer to show opposition to the bill.
