Remember Mark Hass when he was a reporter on Katu? He was good at that job during the days of real street journalists that worked on TV, and he should of stuck with it. Mark's new roll out to save the day in Oregon is a GROSS RECEIPTS TAX. This one is a dandy designed to stall the states expansion of business and MURDER THE LOCAL SMALL MERCHANT. It's a sales tax with bad messy lipstick. My advise for Mark is to open a small business for one year as an experiement to see how easy it is to survive. Hass would go back to Salem with a new mission. Shame on you Mark Hass who's never made a payroll, negotiated with bankers, made rent and kept a staff happy. He gets a F- grade.
