Yesterday Oregon voters passed measures that will increase taxes on big companies (some of whom were only paying $10 per year) and families making over $250,000. A lot of us think that this was a pretty good idea, but there are, of course, many people who think this will have a negative effect on the economy. I, for one, am excited that we at least get a chance to find out if this type of action has a positive or negative effect. It seems like we never even get the chance to carry out these experiments in this country these days.
Cross your fingers!
At least we know it will have a positive effect on the schools that won’t be shuttered.
