Oregon gov. sends police after GOP senators who fled Capitol.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Democrat Gov. Kate Brown deployed the state police Thursday to try to round up Republican lawmakers who fled the Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on a landmark climate plan that would be the second of its kind in the nation.

‘Come heavily armed’: Showdown in Oregon as Democrat governor sends police to round up Republican lawmakers.

Boquist previously warned the governor that “hell is coming to visit you personally” if she issued the order to police. Some Republican lawmakers have reportedly left the state altogether.
Up to 600 members of alleged militia groups expected to mobilize to Oregon-Idaho border in effort to protect state GOP lawmakers who fled climate change vote.

A source with Oregon's Three Percenters told INSIDER on Saturday that upwards of 600 people are expected to mobilize, consisting of 21 Oregon III% county groups, five Idaho III% groups, the statewide Nevada III% group, and six independent militias across the state.

I thought the Democrats were supposed to the big supporters of the working class? Seize the means of production etc.

This is about the Oregon carbon tax Bill HB 2020 which among other things, looks to increase the gasoline tax.

I suppose people are coming to the realization that our public "servants" see us as nothing more than revenue generating tax slaves.

So the Republicans, concerned for the financial well being of the people, have refused to attend the vote.

While they have enough votes to pass the Bill, Oregon needs a minimum number of people to be in attendance.

And this is when prompted Democrat Governor to instructed the state police to "round up" the absent representatives.
