Kulongoski's "New-Deal" to employ people on road construction jobs is in part being funded by incredibly drastic increases in car title and registration fees. Title fees will see a 100% increase and registration fees will see a 200% increase.
I had thought that Democrats were for a progressive tax rate and for taxing the rich. Here we have a TAX increase (it's not a "fee" people . . .) that is straight across the board. As a percentage of income it's drastically non-progressive. Oregon's title and registration fees are not based on vehicle value as some other states.
Just our governors way of "stickin' it to da man", the working man that is.
