With the typical liberal urges of more taxing and more spending running rampant in Oregon - as evidenced by the recent passing of measures 66 and 67 - here's something you would never see pushed in the pages of the Dead Fish Wrapper; lower taxes help increase jobs.
As reported at Newsbusters, Joe Scarborough had an interview with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H.
Want proof low taxes work? Just take a look at the state of New Hampshire, as MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough astutely pointed out.
On the Feb. 2 broadcast of his MSNBC program, Scarborough interviewed Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H. Shaheen's home state was hosting a jobs town hall put on by President Barack Obama and Scarborough used the occasion for a teachable moment.
"Now, usually none of us would celebrate unemployment rates of 7 percent," Scarborough said. "But that is not only well below the national average, but your neighbor, Rhode Island, to the south of you now sitting with a 13 percent unemployment rate. What's New Hampshire doing right?"
Now, what's the chance you would see an idea like this advocated for in the Fish Wrapper?
