The Oregon Republican Party Needs Your Help To
STOP JOB-KILLING TAXES!

Help us to Get Out The Vote!

What can you do to help stop tax increases in Oregon? Get Out The Vote efforts are a very important part of the fight to Stop Job-Killing Taxes, so please sign up HERE to volunteer with the ORP!

There is a lot at stake in the upcoming tax referendum Special Election in January 2010. The Democratic leadership in Oregon has already signaled that if these tax increases pass, the Democrats would have a mandate for their agenda and candidates in November 2010. TRANSLATION: Expect MORE OF THE SAME in Salem and in Congress! We cannot let this happen.
Help us bring our state back from the edge. By getting involved NOW, you can help us define the 2010 election year and give a boost to the top-notch Republican candidates who are campaigning on the messages of lower taxes and fiscal responsibility.

You can also download the STOP JOB-KILLING TAXES
posters, print them now and show your support:

This is the most important issue in Oregon over the next eight weeks, leading up to the special election on January 26th. In addition to organizing and mobilizing our grassroots volunteers, we need the resources to get our message of lower taxes out to all Oregonians. If you don’t have time to volunteer, please consider making a donation that will help us defeat these dangerous, job-killing tax increases. Use your 2009 Oregon Political Tax Credit which allows you to deduct up to $50 per individual and $100 per couple from your state taxes for this important cause!

TAXES… THE REAL REASON
Senator Jeff Kruse, R-Roseburg, District 1

In the January special election the voters will be asked to support or reject two tax measures.  Over the next couple of months you will hear a lot from both sides about the dire consequences of either a yes or a no vote on these measures.  Before I get into the merits of the measures I think it is important to understand how we reached this point.

In the 2007 legislative session government grew by over 20%.  While the revenue forecast did line up with that rate of growth, we warned leadership at the time it was not sustainable and we should back off.  Our advice was ignored.  We ended up having to make reductions in budgets during the last quarter of the biennium because, although revenue had increased, it had not increased at the rate projected.

SECOND VERSE, SAME AS THE FIRST

Obama Holding ‘Jobs Summit’ To Push Stimulus II, Ignoring Lessons
From Stimulus I, Republican Ideas For Job Creation

OBAMA’S FIRST STIMULUS FAILED TO PREVENT DOUBLE-DIGIT UNEMPLOYMENT, SUCCEEDED IN PROMOTING WASTE, FRAUD AND ABUSE

Since Obama’s $787 Billion Stimulus Passed In February, America Has Lost 2.8 Million Jobs, Unemployment Rate Now At 10.2 Percent. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, Accessed 12/2/09)

$3 Million From Stimulus Went To Road Crossing For Turtles. “A report due to be released today … contends the Obama administration’s stimulus program is fraught with waste … evidenced by a turtle crossing in northern Florida that will cost more than $3 million.” (Peter Nicholas, “Stimulus Program Fraught With Waste Report Says,” The Los Angeles Times, 6/15/09)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RNC CHAIRMAN STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S AFGHANISTAN STRATEGY


WASHINGTON
– Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:

“Although this decision took far too long and it should not have, I am glad the president will finally provide General McChrystal with the troops he needs.  However, tonight’s speech must be the beginning, not the end, of the case President Obama makes to the American people as to why this is, as he said during the campaign, ‘a war we have to win.’  If the president remains committed to this crucial fight, Republicans – and the American people – will stand with him.  But sending mixed signals by outlining the exit before these troops even get on the ground undermines their ability to succeed.”
