In search of a fair tax system for everyone….

Submitted by Oregon U.S. Senator Ron Wyden:

Donald Trump bragged about being an historic and massive tax cheat – but he’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The truth is that thanks to decades of Republican policies and sabotage, America’s ultra-wealthy have the ability to avoid paying their fair share of taxes, and sometimes nothing at all.

Our tax system is badly broken. If a millionaire or billionaire is so inclined, they can find a ton of loopholes necessary to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.

When Republicans were in charge, this kind of cheating wasn’t just tolerated, it was fully supported – even celebrated! So, the mega-wealthy and their children shared the benefits of our schools, colleges, roads, defense, infrastructure, and social services while forcing hard-working Americans to pay the tax bill to pay for it all!

But Democrats have managed to take back the U.S. Senate with a simple plan: what if America’s tax cheats paid their fair share?  Our country works best when we all work together. And that includes each of us paying our fair share instead of ducking our responsibilities to each other and to our country.

I’ve been working hard to shed light on tax cheats and how we can stop them. Make no mistake – with Democrats in control, corporations and the mega-wealthy won’t have these loopholes to abuse much longer. I look forward to continuing this fight in the coming weeks and months.  Because enough is enough. It’s time to fix our country’s badly-broken tax system and guarantee America’s ultra-wealthy pay their fair share.

Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon

$1,000 reward for information on great horned owls poached near Helix, OR, (Kathy Muse photo)

 HELIX, OR (On the Columbia River) — A pair of great horned owls poached near the Eastern Oregon town of Helix on March 29 has drawn a reward offer of up to $1,000 by the Portland Audubon Society for information that leads to a citation or arrest.

A local resident walking her dog discovered the crime. As Betty Burns (not her real name) walked her dog along a rural road near their home, the black labradoodle hesitated and turned toward the ditch. Betty looked to see what had drawn the dog’s attention. She was disappointed to see a mound of feathers but could not quite make out what kind of bird lay dead in the ditch.  It was large. Maybe a hawk. Betty and her dog continued their walk along the rural road.

When they returned, this time walking on the opposite side of the road, the dog stopped again. Betty glanced into the ditch, then took a closer look. She saw the body of a great horned owl. She paused, then quickly crossed the road to look in the ditch on the other side. Yes, there it was, the indistinguishable bird. She could tell it was also a great horned owl.  She pulled out her cell phone and called her husband’s number.  “Jack,” she said, voice trembling, “Come pick me up. You’ve got to see this.” (more…)
