Times have changed

Time was that things like the double majority rule, kickers, property tax reduction, etc. were the default position of politicians in this state. Anyone who argued against these things would have been burned at the stake.

But the double majority rule was overturned by the voters. The legislature is considering repealing the entire kicker. And now Gov. Kulongoski is hinting that he might push for a repeal/reform of Measure 5.

We may be witnessing the progressive version of The Shock Doctrine.
