U.S. Senator Russ Feingold and Personal Retirement Accounts

Jackson, WI - Senator Russ Feingold has drawn the line in the sand between himself and the 64% of Americans who want some sort of personal retirement accounts in the Social Security program. At a Feingold "Listening Session," Senator Feingold shot down the possibility of PRA’s, noting that, "[they] would undermine Social Security." In elaboration, his concerns were of lost retirement security; that PRA’s do not provide the safety net that Social Security does.

Understanding Oregon’s Measure 30

BY SARAH EVANS

Oregon voters soon will decide on Measure 30, a proposal to temporarily raise income taxes. When the Oregon Legislature met in 2003, it was faced with a difficult problem — how do we pay for everything the state needs when we don’t have enough money? It’s like if you want to buy a $15 CD and spend $5 on soda, but your allowance for the week is only $15. Do you ask your parents for more money? Or do you cut back on soda so you can get the CD? The legislators’ solution was Measure 30. What does Measure 30 do?

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.
