Will Oregon voters say 'no' to a sales tax once again?

Apr 15, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KATU-TV Portland

Oregon voters have rejected a sales tax nine times in the past eight decades. Some in the Oregon Legislature hope the 10th try will be the charm.

Not if they are smart. Sales taxes are easy to raise anytime the city, county and state feel like it. Watch out Oregon.

I have to agree with you for the most part. The Californians started moving up there in the 70s and bringing there ways with them. They are destroying the most beautiful state with their environmental overdose of crap. They are bringing all if the businesses that failed in their state and doing the same thing to Oregon. It's a real shame.

We live in Louisiana now in order to work and actually make a living but Oregon was my home, I was raised there in St Helens. It was a nice town but it is being ruined too. Salem is the last city we lived in. It was a quiet little city when we first moved there. That's gone now too. There are just too many out of staters that really don't have a problem destroying a good thing. But it is still a beautiful state.

I'd be just fine with a border between Oregon & California. I'm sick of Oregonians coming to Palm Springs in the winter to get out of their awful winter weather then demanding a discount on their purchases because "I don't have to pay sales tax at home". Fine, stay home and you won't have to worry about it. Or think of it as a sun tax. Or go to Vancouver for some sun in December. Go anywhere but here...

Have a nice day.

PS: I think the state itself is beautiful & I went to college in Eugene. But seriously, cut back on the attitude...you are not that special.
