A poll of over 300 Oregon voters were asked which tax they fear will be raised next by the state or local governments in Oregon. The results overwhelmingly indicate they most expect a tax on cell phone use. When given the option of whether they expect to see an individual tax or if there is the likelihood of a bundle of tax increases, one in three saw a bundle of taxes in their future.
However, the poll was taken before the November election results. With the Democrats stripped of their super majorities and the House now sharing majority, the voters may have been sending a fiscal message of restraint to the Oregon House and Senate. With that change in the air, would that make a difference in the responses?
