We must remember that these Measure 97 victims are real people with real financial pain being heaped upon them.

The utilities are already saying Measure 97 will likely lead to a 5% utility increase which will raise costs across the board.

Grocery stores will see their their total tax burden triple in size. This will have a terrible impact on prices and it is seniors who will pay the price.

We bring you these stories because it is easy to forget how vulnerable many Oregonians really are. We don’t always see them or hear their stories. High taxes come at serious sacrifice to people’s lives. These seniors are people who can’t afford a huge tax cost increase.

    But the $100,000/yr (for 9 months work) want more money and nothing is too much for the teachers of our kids. Pay no attention to the low graduation rates and the teaching of propaganda.

    Measure 97 seems to be the battle years in the making. It will be interesting to see what happens in November.
