Here it is – Progressives’ game plan for fixing Oregon’s budget hole. Does it say anything about spending less? Silly question.
It’s important that you read this roadmap to liberal Nirvana so you’re aware of what they’ll do if they get their way. But we suggest that you not read it soon after eating.
OK, so this is 16 years old. But it’s still such an absurd government action that it’s hilarious.

…A new study from Arthur D. Little finds that, over its lifecycle, an electric car will generate just 23% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than a gasoline-powered car. If every car on earth were electric, this translates into a mere 1.8% decline in total emissions.
Yet even a small electric car will cost its owner $20,816 more to own and operate than a comparable gas-powered car, and its total “human toxicity” – mainly due to heavy metals and graphite – will be three to five times greater.
This is hardly the first study to demonstrate that electric cars solve no environmental problem.
Will it make a difference? No. We’re way beyond that now…
