Street Beat: Should Oregon create a sales tax earmarked for education?

Greg Weaver, Enterprise ÒNo. I think we pay enough taxes as it is. Every time we drive our rigs, buy cigarettes and alcohol we get taxed. I think we are taxed enough.Ó

"No. We have enough taxes already. Lottery dollars go for education anyway, right?"

"Well, I don't think we need a sales tax. We need to save education another way; by budgeting our dollars so that education is a priority."

"Yes. It will help the schools so they don't have to cut so many teachers and good programs like sports and extra curricular activities."

Brian Holm

"Yes. They need to pay for education somehow. I don't know if a sales tax is the answer, but there has got to be an answer somewhere. We can't just let schools go in the hole."
