TRASH: Statesman stands with Kotek, defends the mugging and ransacking
Statesman Journal stands with Speaker Kotek, defends mugging mom-and-pops and ransacking family farms
SALEM, Ore.-While statewide papers like The Oregonian, have called out Democrats for breaking promises, the Salem Statesman Journal, defended the Speaker of the House’s small business beat down. The Speaker’s small business beat down, her repeal of the Grand Bargain to raise a $667 million tax, is essentially a mugging of Oregon’s smallest mom-and-pop job providers and a ransacking of family farms.
Every Oregonian should be outraged, said Senate Republicans, because small job providers are the backbone of society.
Senate Republican Leader Ted Ferrioli, of John Day, said the small business tax hike is “one, horrible, two, illegal,” and released the following statement:
“Oregonians shouldn’t wake up in the morning to witness a mugging. The Statesman Journal is notorious for blindly defending Democrats’ destructive policies. It is the tale of two cities. The narrative they are proposing is that Republicans are whiners and that they are protesting without basis, and that the $667 million from the smallest of businesses belongs to state workers and unions. The Oregonian on the other hand, where you have far fewer of the state worker types, rightfully calls out the violence to the Constitution and the plundering of the people.”
Some Republicans are questioning what is the intent of defending an illegal tax hike on small business.
Ferrioli added:
“There is journalism, the hard, tedious work of real journalism, and there’s fake news. Oregonians have to decide for themselves which media to trust, and which media to throw in the trash.”
