    The state blew dismally the Business Energy Tax Credit program to the tune of $1 billion in public monies, and now wants to replace it with yet another energy program of even greater magnitude “cap and “”invest (ha, ha)”””. And each of these programs expands the ranks of public employees which are a future draw on the Public Employee Retirement System which ultimately faces bankruptcy, sometime in the 2025 to 2035 time frame after the current set of jokers have blown more of the people’s monies.

    Let’s make sure we get the word out on the ballot measure that NO means no tax…. at least that’s what I think. I hope someone can confirm. Those Salem snake oil salesmen like to make the measures as tricky as possible.

    No Income Tax does not mean Yes to a privilege tax. No new gas tax does not mean yeas to a road use tax or any other kind of renamed tax increase. Title and registration fees are going up faster than ………. well, you get the message but apparently Salem does not.
    Enough is enough. Contain your damned spending.
