The “kicker” is a wart on Oregon’s economic complexion. Moving the corporate kicker for this year to a rainy day fund is a step in the right direction, but I wonder what could be done with the 1.1 billion going to Oregon households in mid-December. Instead of ballooning Christmas extravagance, perhaps this money is needed in our schools, on our roads, and to restore the disenfranchised.

Am I going to cash my check? Yes. Would I vote to eliminate the kicker? Yes.

With nothing to do in Kuala Lumpur while waiting for your AF file to arrive, I've had to resort to reading your blog!

So, I have to say, "This Friend speaks my mind" -- in regard to the Oregon "Kicker" refund coming in the mail in December. - Ron
