Oregon voters elected a clueless governor

A dramatic rise in compensation costs for Oregon's public employees during the next five years could force significant reductions in the number of people providing key public services, according to a new study from Portland State University's Center for Public ServiceThe study found that compensation costs are far outpacing projected revenue growth, and in the absence of some extraordinary windfall - perhaps from new taxes [or federal bailouts] - the mismatch will leave state government employers with little alternative but to reduce their workforce, perhaps by as much as 10 percent.  
That would be Kate Brown who was the union pick for governor, and claims there is no  problem.
