Trump's Federal Assistance Keeping Oregon Afloat
Revenue forecast positive for Oregon, despite Kate Brown lock-downs

The 2020 Oregon revenue forecast was announced today on the second day of autumn, and it seems Oregon has a positive $2 billion dollar ending balance from general and other funds.

This may seem somewhat surprising to some Oregonians that we are seeing such economic activity, but considering that Oregonians have at least received some federal assistance from the Trump administration, it may have been effective enough to help the dire situation imposed on Oregonians by Kate Brown's mandated lock-downs.

Senator Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) and Senator Dennis Linthicum (R-Klamath Falls) issued the following joint statement:

“The revenue projection shows we are $2 billion ahead, even with the political pandemic, wildfires and Governor Kate Brown’s horrific policies that destroy the livelihoods of hardworking Oregonians and leave bureaucrats untouched.

“The state is not facing grim numbers thanks to President Trump and federal assistance. Governor Kate Brown and Democrats will twist this fact to raise taxes that benefit their special interests on the backs of the dwindling middle class, and low and fixed income Oregonians, despite record setting revenue streams flowing in from personal and corporate income tax collections. The current disparities are thanks to decades of Democrat failures.

“Governor Brown cares only about consolidating her own power, while inciting lawlessness and embracing anarchy and chaos. She has failed to protect and support law enforcement as they put their lives on the line each day, except when she needs them, as the governor rolls through the state with an entourage of fully-armed security.

“Portland was labeled an anarchist jurisdiction by the federal government, complete with the threat to cut federal funding, which compromises the very entity that provided the revenue stream that has saved the state from bankruptcy. Governor Brown would rather watch Oregon burn and its citizens waste away than be a true leader and work with the federal government.”
