Letter: Oregon taxes higher than expected

Taxes higher than expected

I am a retired senior citizen who expected my federal taxes to go up this year, and they have. After all, we must feed, clothe, shelter, educate and medicate a few million more illegal immigrants. We must also make a payment to China for the $15 trillion debt we owe. Along with that, the Feds have taken over states’ rights in every field.

So it came as a surprise to learn that my Oregon state tax for 2012 is 25 percent higher than my federal tax. I keep asking myself, “What is wrong with this picture?”
