Anatomy of a fraudulent “grassroots” campaign: Citizens for a Sound Economy

BY Noah Page

The campaign by the right-wing organization Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) to overturn a legislatively approved tax increase in Oregon and implement more than half-a-billion in cuts to public services was presented by both CSE and its supporters as a “grassroots” political operation. This claim is worthy of serious examination.

Anti-Tax Brushfire

On Tuesday, Oregon’s voters did what their compatriots in several other states have recently done: they shot down a tax hike. It is the latest blast fired in a tax revolt that is sweeping the nation. It is not a tea-in-the-harbor type of revolt, but one that is quietly stirring in ballot boxes across the country. Leading the charge are concerned taxpayers no one in Washington, DC has ever heard of, but those in the halls of power would do well to head the message these citizen-leaders repeatedly send: Americans do not want to pay higher taxes.

Washington State Freedom Works Agenda Update

Taxes Governor Locke and the League of Education Voters (LEV) have released their billion-dollar sales tax increase plan, P-16. CSE has vowed to fight this plan every step of the way and we have begun the effort by sending direct emails to the governor to let him know we think there is a better way. Politicians have to learn to live within their means, just like ordinary families do. Exercising fiscal discipline and responsibility is the only way to foster the economic growth that Washington needs and we need to continually repeat this message.

Mannix, Walker told lies

BY Gene Anderson

Thanks again to the Republican party’s Kevin Mannix and Citizens for a Sound Economy’s Russ Walker for the lies perpetrated on Oregonians to make sure Measure 30 failed. Kevin, where is this magical plan to stop all the deadly cuts? Russ, where is the $500 million pot of money you said was available to bail out Oregon? There is neither, just two big lies. You see, after the last cuts that came, I personally know of three people who died, and who knows how many across Oregon who have died.
