Oregon leaders' choice: Santa or statesman
Full-day kindergarten. Universal health care. Fresh bouquets on the desks of every state employee, paid for through a newly created State Flower Fund. There's no end to the number of government programs that might make life better for Oregonians after years of cuts.
The Fishwrapper calling for less spending? Actually not really. Of the three items listed above you can bet that they support the first two while reluctantly opposing the third.
And instead of saying they want to "spend" on something they say we should "invest" in something. Kind of like I could "invest" in a six-pack.
My prediction: Lars and Victoria are going to have lots of cannon fodder to talk about when the next legislative session comes about.
