Oregon Measure 66 and 67

Post  PoWn3d_0704 on 2/1/2010, 22:40

As we all know, the two newest measures have just passed in Oregon.
This tax was supposed to get rid of the 'unfair' tax on corperations. It was thought that these large businesses, (Nike, resturant chains, etc.) only paid 10 dollars in taxes. However, it's a 10 dollar FILING fee, not the overall tax.

These new measures attack business that make 500,000 a year in GROSS SALES, not how much profit they turn in. Our business will be NAILED, because our suppliers are going to have a newHUGE tax dumped on them.

Now, here are the consequences of passing this measure.

Nike. Oregons pride and joy. Nike is EASILY the largest business in Oregon, and it is in the running for the largest business in the world.

Well, they sell much more than 500,000 worth of merchandice in a year. Heck, they probably average that in a day.

Well, this business brings tons of money to Oregon, and they announced not 24 hours after the measure passed, that they will be closing their headquarters in Portland, and moving to Vancouver Washington.

Uh-oh! Government screwwwwed up. In trying to get more money out of 'large businesses', they have lost their single biggest tax payer of them ALL.

Plus, companies like applebees, chiles, and other smallish business chains, have announced that they will NEVER allow another resurant to open within Oregon's border.

Not only has Oregon lost huge amounts of money since these stupid measures have passed, but what about the CHARITIES who benefitted from these massive companies.

Companies used to donate and give money to the charities to have tax deductions, but these new measures are based on the overall money pumped into the business... Meaning no tax deductions. So what is the point of giving to charities anymore?

Oregon, oregon's money, and the people who relied on money from these companies, are all screwed because a bunch of old democratic IDIOTS wanted to make sure the corps weren't only paying 10 dollars.

Some brillent guy decided to trick a bunch of people into thinking that corps ONLY paid 10 dollars... So they would pass a tax law... So HE could get more money... But it looks like he screwed up so bad, it's not even funny.

Totally agree, I thought 66 was a good idea, BUT 67 was a total fallacy, it was not thought out, and was only based on net income, NOT net profit. Unfortunatly it passed. Rolling Eyes

Unfortunately, while democracy is supposed to be based on education about the issues, our country's is based on hate and fear. While people neglect to actually educate themselves about issues, they also vote for any bill that goes against the rich (be they rich people or rich corporations) because they hate the rich. Meanwhile, the rich are afraid of the middle class because they know something like this will happen.

Yup, in general people are pretty stupid. There is no core guidence, so they do what seems like the best idea, and politicians twist that, to fool the masses into doing things like this.

Exactly... this whole bill basically screwed Oregon in the you-know-what.

Think about it... the dude signs the bill... and WHAM! Nike leaves. What a kick in the gut.

Nike may not leave, they do have a loooot of money. I think it's more the small companies that will suffer the most.

66 was a yes, it was important. But 67 was an epic fail. You have to understand business to get the trip in it. It's based on net income, not net profit. Meaning if a company has a net profit of a million dollers, but only has a profit of $100 because of expenses, then with the tax, they will actually be owing money. 67 is unfair, and unjust. It was worded to trick people who know nothing of business, and it worked.

67 was very unjust & unfair. Crinkle you obviously have no clue about business or were easily fooled by it.
Either way... I'm sure a lot of people were the same way.. Maybe more people should take business in highschool. Maybe then they'd catch things such as this, before they make a horrible mistake in voting for measures.

Amen, voting for something just because it's "liberal" or "conservative" is foolish, you need to vote because you understand the issue, and what effect it will have. Wink

Yeah, but the people working for the rich people do.
& if the rich people are having problems with that tax that is preventing them from possibly paying their employees, then did they really do any good, did they?

People are so worried about people having more money than other people.. In all reality.. We should just be lucky to have a job in the first place & to be getting money.

Seriously.. Just.. Ugh.. Dont even get me started..

But the problem is it won't be effecting the rich people, the people it will effect the most are the smaller businesses that can barely get buy, because they won't have the income to spare now. That's the point we're trying to get across here. Mad

Yeah.. So Crinkle, honestly, all you're worried about is the big businesses, the fat cats on the block with money rolling out their back pockets like no tomorrow. When what you should of realized is that it affects ALL businesses. Including the small businesses that we have an abundance of in our little town here in Junction City. Mad

Just think about that one, kay?

Well it depends, I agree a LOT of rich folks don't need or deserve that kind of wealth, I mean think of all the good it could do, instead it stays stuck in banks, while people are starving and dying. Wink
