The Oregon legislature is still giving away money like it’s their own. Check out the following bill:
Since it is unconstitutional to give general fund money to religious organizations, they rewrote the bill to play a shell game. It overwhelmingly pass the Senate. Here’s the rewrite:
If this was going to a Christian church, the papers would be all over it. But now it’s silence.
The legislature is also pushing through what I call the Burqua bill to insure Muslims can force employers to submission.
Good job, keep the lefties looking like blood suckers.
Shouldn’t the title read:
All three Oregon Republicans offer no-new-tax budget
Thanks for the post!
I’ve always wondered who does the revenue forecast. Is it somehow non-partisan? In this state I can only imagine it being cooked by the Dems over the last quarter century.
To keep schools open, however, the budgets of other agencies would be cut below what Democratic budget leaders have proposed.
But there is no cut there and they cannot allow anyone to define it in those terms. There certainly werent in any of the past several GOP controlled sessions, and I dont believe there have been any in my lifetime.
Too bad dishonesty is such a third rail. But a cut thats not a cut is, well, not a cut.
When I was in the GOP CentCom I used to harp on the local House members about that but for whatever reason they were unwilling to put the partys position on the debate into terms other than those used by the ones into whos pockets the money goes. To this day, the inmates continue to run the asylum.
BIG trouble is just around the corner for this state and the country if government doesnt begin to CUT spending for real, and DEVOLVE.
