Philanthropy

BY Molly Ivins

AUSTIN, Texas -- Philanthropy may not be high on your list of Stuff to Think About -- except maybe to hope that some might be headed your way. But political philanthropy is in fact playing a large role in your life -- indeed, it is shaping the entire nation's life to an extent that deserves to be put on your list of Stuff to Think About.

Measure 30: Don’t discourage businesses

This piece by CSE Northwest Director Russ Walker originally appeared as an op-ed in the Statesman Journal newspaper. January 28, 2004 In what is becoming an annual event, voters have received ballots asking them for higher taxes — this year, it’s Measure 30’s $1.1 billion tax hike. The hike will hit everyone — families, businesses, property owners, even senior citizens. It will cause long-term damage to the economic health of the state and do nothing to aid economic recovery.

Don't be a prick, vote for Measure 30

BY Sanjai Tripathi

The election issue of the day for Oregonians isn't the Democratic presidential primary. Only Iowa, New Hampshire and the Super Tuesday states will really get a say in the process, not us. We have our own question; whether to pass a tax increase on ourselves in an economic downturn. We have had ballot measures on taxes, both for raises and cuts, every few years. These are usually pretty sad examples of democracy in action.

Measure 30 failure threatens education

BY Dennis Shine

On page 4 of the Voters' Pamphlet for the Feb. 3 special election is a brief description of Measure 30 and a statement of the results of a "Yes" or "No" vote. According to this description, a "No" vote on Measure 30 would "trigger $544.6 million in budget cuts to areas including education, health care, senior services and public safety." A "No" vote on Measure 30 would overturn a bipartisan agreement, arrived at by all 25 of our Democratic and 11 of our Republican representatives. This agreement was designed to address the State of Oregon's budget problems. Citizens for a Sound Economy, a Washington, D.C., lobby group, and a few large Oregon businesses seek to overturn the hard work of our elected representatives in arriving at this agreement.

BY RUSS WALKER

The hike will hit everyone — families, businesses, property owners, even senior citizens. It will cause long-term damage to the economic health of the state and do nothing to aid economic recovery. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, a state trying to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

Cities weigh Measure 30’s local impact

BY DENNIS THOMPSON JR., CRYSTAL BOLNER AND SHAWN DAY

Cities in Marion and Polk county don’t expect to see budget cuts if Measure 30’s $1.2 billion state tax increase fails to get voter approval next Tuesday — at least not in the short term. But a number of city leaders say they expect to see immediate, indirect consequences if the state slashes its budget, much of it affecting public safety and quality of life.
