Have you heard the phrase "Class Warfare" enough for a lifetime? Yeah, me too. We'll hear it plenty more in the next five weeks from Measure 66-67 opponents who find it much, much easier to hit hot buttons than to argue substantively against making Oregon's tax system slightly more progressive, or against raising the top marginal federal tax rate from 35% back up to 39%. "Don't you realize that's just class warfare!" Right.
I'm cranky enough about this to write a whole column. So I did, right here.
Is this your take, too? If so I hope you'll call out anyone tossing out this lame bloody bait over the next month, as will I. It's cynical manipulation and we should challenge it.
