Doubletalk from Huebsch

He won't raise taxes, he says.

Of course, he WILL point a gun at your head and take more money.

He'll call it "fees."

Assembly Speaker Mike Huebsch, R-West Salem, said in a news conference today with Capitol reporters that his caucus will bring forward a budget that does not increase taxes. Fees may be a different story, he said.

It gets better. Mike apparently doesn't even know the difference between "fees" and "taxes."

A fee is something we charge someone that uses a service of the state government,” Huebsch said, citing the gas tax to pay for public roads as one example.
