Oregon’s tax-hiking Democrat Governor, Kate Brown, has seen her approval ratings plummet 13 points as she raises taxes and fails to deal with a myriad of problems plaguing the state, from the pension crisis and deaths in the foster care system, to crime and rising healthcare costs.
Now, Brown is on the verge of signing another tax hike that could cause her approval numbers to fall even further – this time, a massive $244 million tax hike on small businesses. Over the weekend, the Bulletin editorial board called on Brown to veto the tax, saying it would hurt small businesses that “are the backbone of the Oregon economy.”
Now, the Albany-Democrat Herald editorial board is weighing in, writing that Brown should veto the tax hike because it is “the right thing to do.”
Will Kate Brown listen to the editorial boards and small businesses across the state pleading for her to veto the $244 million tax hike, or will she again raise taxes and do more damage to Oregon’s economy?
