Soaking the Rich in Oregon
By a surprisingly clear 53-47 and 54-46 margins, voters in Oregon have approved ballot measures raising taxes on wealthier residents. It’s the sort of story you’d hear more about if it went the other way. As Fox News reported yesterday:
The No campaign is also getting a boost from the Republican National Committee. An RNC staffer has been helping out the last several weeks hoping to show that the country’s mood is for less government spending and lower taxes. They’re hoping to build on the momentum from last week’s Senate election in Massachusetts where Republican Scott Brown won the seat held for decades by liberal icon Ted Kennedy.
Not hearing a lot on this from the Republican National Committee today.
