Another Right Wing Juggernaut?

Maybe not.

Oregon voters voted for a tax increase... that's right, a tax increase.

Robert Cruikshank of the blog Calitics has a first rate account of the effort to pass the increase, how they defeated a corporate lobby that outspent them big time.

hmmmm.... Things are not what they seem after one lives in Oregon for a while.... what I once viewed as very progressive from Oregon changed dramatically after I lived there for a decade. This fits in to the "stick it to 'em' category of politics in Oregon, not a progressive move at all... just thinkin'.
