#1 I wonder how many garden/granola variety Kalifornians have moved to Oregon in recent yrs and have brought their voting tendencies w/them.

No offense intended to our conservative CA rantburgers who are on the fore front against tax tyranny.

#2 Looks like we're all working for the government one way or another.

#3 At least Oregon has no sales tax for the moment.
--- What would be real news is if a state in trouble like Oregon actually cut its spending back to a year 2000 level.

#4 Thanks, Fred for bringing this up. It is a very nice summary of the political and economical mess that I live in. The county I live in has nearly as high an unemployment figure as Michigan. Our unemployment stats have been higher than the nation's for as long as I can remember - several decades, at least. The majority of people here see themselves as living in a progressive state, instead of a perpetual state of regression. There is a large minority who see things more clearly, but we are firmly a minority. I don't see that we can or will change until a majority of our voters accept the reality that we, collectively, caused the mess we are in and we, collectively have the power to change that. It will just take some honest self examination. Wont happen soon, if ever.

#5 On the flip side of this issue
The County Road Association of Michigan warns that 21 of 83 Michigan counties will have to cut back on projects because they won’t have the money to pay their required share for the roadwork – generally a 20% match with federal funds – in 2010-2012.
In my part of Ohio for the last 3 years I have noticed a cutback in road salting & plowing in the winter and a worsening of road surfaces in areas maintained by the cities & counties. This has not made the local news yet.
