Oregon Dems agenda: grow government control

Dem Party of OR Oregon Dems agenda: grow government control

by NW Spotlight

The Salem Statesman-Journal reported on the 2013 agenda items released this week by the Democratic Party of Oregon. The Dem’s agenda calls for expanding government and expanding government control – including creating a state-run Bank of Oregon and giving government almost complete control of health care with a single-payer, universal health care system like the ones in the U.K. or Canada.

Sound expensive? Not to worry, they’ve got that covered too: the Dem’s agenda would allow the legislature to raise taxes and fees on you with a simple majority vote. Currently, the Oregon Constitution requires a 3/5 majority vote to pass any tax/fee increases. Democrats had that 3/5 super-majority in the 2009 session when they passed the tax increases that became Measure 66 and Measure 67.
