    Government Needs More From YOU


    As BIG GOVERNMENT gets bigger, so does its need for money. All those handouts people think are free come from the pockets of those that have earned, robbed by politicians at the federal, state and local levels. All those public services under union control continue to extort more and more from taxpayers.

    Oregon, long a Democrat state, has one of the worse BIG GOVERNMENT tax records in the nation. In 2006 Oregon ranked #4 in Per Capita for income tax, behind #1 Connecticut (Democrat), #2 Massachusetts (Democrat), and #3 New York (Democrat).
