Unfinished Business

The Democratic primaries are shaping the policy debate surrounding the upcoming presidential election. When it comes to tax policy, all the candidates seemed unified in their determination to repeal some, if not all, of President Bush's tax cuts. These efforts to take resources away from taxpayers in favor of a larger federal budget are often grounded in class warfare or concerns over deficit spending. However, before abandoning the tax cuts, it may be wise to review the current state of the economy. Recent economic trends suggest that Bush was right to cut taxes; in fact, economic growth could be bolstered by making these cuts permanent.

No on Ballot Measure 30

BY Russ Walker

Measure 30 provides Oregonians the chance to say no to the $1.1 billion tax package passed by the Legislature. More than 100,000 Oregonians signed petitions expressing their disapproval of the actions taken by legislators and a governor who has already gone back on his inaugural promise not to raise taxes. When ballots are counted Feb. 3, thousands more will echo this sentiment. Barely one year after the defeat of Measure 28, voters will again attempt to get a message across: Taxes are not the solution to Oregon's economic situation.

The G.O.P, Inc.

BY RICHARD W. BEHAN

The G.O.P. was once a respectable political party, giving voice to cautious citizens who saw much to protect in the affairs of the nation. The Democratic Party offered a forum for less sanguine citizens to disagree and seek reform, and in the healthy conflict between the two a robust democracy served the nation well. Neither party was rigidly ideological, driven passionately to impose a set of beliefs, as the Taliban, say, imposed Islam in prewar Afghanistan. Both parties respected democracy.

Voters appear unfazed by cuts after last tax failed

BY JEFF MAPES

When Oregon voters rejected an income tax increase a year ago, it had an undeniable impact on services. Nearly half the state's school districts ended the school year early. Some 8,000 poor Oregonians lost prescription drug coverage. Thousands of low-level criminals faced little or no prosecution for several months. But as a vote on yet another measure to increase taxes nears, the big lesson of the last year is that the threat -- and even the reality -- of cuts in services doesn't necessarily sway most voters.

Measure 30 a taxing debate

BY STEVE LAW

TIMOTHY J. GONZALEZ /PHOTO Dean Braa, a sociology professor at Western Oregon University, fears that rising tuition costs will price some students out of a college education. He supports Measure 30, which would spare deep cuts to education. Statesman Journal January 18, 2004 Barbara Prince’s husband has cancer and their mom-and-pop truck repair shop is losing money. They would face $1,000 in higher business taxes under the Legislature’s 2003 tax-increase plan, so they are voting “no” on the Feb. 3 referendum to ratify the new taxes.
