Press Release

Help Fight Taxes and Spending in Oregon

I just wanted to take a minute and update you on our efforts to fight taxes and spending in Oregon. Many of you will be excited to learn that we are planning Taxpayer Tea Parties in multiple cities across Oregon! This is because of the overwhelming interest in joining our effort to fight wasteful government spending and the massive bailouts.You can rsvp for these events by visiting IamWithRick.com and signing up to attend the tea party closest to you.As CNBC's Rick Santelli pointed out, it's time for the American peopleto defend free markets and take to the streets in protest!SIGN UP NOW for the protest closest to you! We will send you updateson the events as we get them.Also, if you care about wasteful spending and higher taxes, you mightwant to take a minute to send Governor Kulangoski a message. As you know, we’ve been closely following one bad idea after another that has come out of Salem.  First it was a massive cigarette tax hike.  Then it was plans for a tax on mileage, higher registration and title fees, a gasoline tax hike, and even an outrageous 1900% beer tax hike!  So far, it’s been all taxes and no cuts that go after waste and the regulations that burden businesses in Oregon.  Now, rather than trying to lift the financial burdens of hurting Oregonians, legislators are floating more plans to rake in more cash.  These include raising the state income tax, an even bigger gasoline tax hike, and taking away Oregon’s kicker!  States across the board are facing budget problems, but taking more money out of the pockets of people who are already struggling to make ends meet isn’t the answer.  Take Action and tell your elected officials that you oppose more tax and spend plans.  Like everyone else, Oregon’s leaders need to reexamine the books and stretch our dollars a little further.

Reporter Says Outburst Was Spontaneous

BY Brian Stelter

Rick Santelli, the CNBC reporter whose on-air suggestion of a “Chicago Tea Party” to protest President Obama’s housing plan sparked an Internet sensation and a smattering of actual protests across the country, found himself on the defensive Monday.Mr. Santelli published a long blog post on CNBC’s Web site Monday evening denying any affiliation with the “tea party movements that have popped up” since his comments were broadcast. A number of blogs had questioned whether Mr. Santelli had coordinated his on-camera commentary with right-wing groups.

Bill would move kicker money into rainy-day fund

BY Harry Esteve

SALEM -- Lawmakers said Tuesday that they're ready to take on one of Oregon's most sacred cows: the kicker tax refunds.A bipartisan group of legislators unveiled a bill to siphon off all or part of any future surplus and put the money into the state's rainy-day savings account rather than sending it back in checks to taxpayers.If approved by the Legislature, the issue would go to Oregon voters in a general election. Kicker refunds are locked in the state constitution, which can't be amended without a statewide vote.

Jim Cramer (Democrat) slams Obama's "radical" economic policies

Jim Cramer, one of the loudest Wall Street supporters of Barack Obama prior to the election, may now be one of the first well-known liberals to start saying publicly what many of the rest of us non-liberals have been saying for weeks or months. While the Democrats have had some fun in recent days with the mini-tiff between Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele, now we have a high-profile Democrat with a large following (though many people aren’t sure why) calling the president out as the radical that he is.
