The Republians in Idaho are able to only cut schools & social services..i.e. Medicaid.
Could they tax tobacco & booze & raise Millions..YES!
Could they allow casinos in Twin FaLLS & get back all the revenue that goes to Jackpot every year & put that surplus into education or medicaid....YES.
But will the Mormon Republicans allow them.
Because then they couldn't get re-elected.
The challege that our republicans lawmakers face, which is the majority, is they lack the ability to be creative & look for soultions outside of cutting programs.
You voted them into office.
Now live with it.
Republicans don't care & will cut medicaid & schools. That is all they know how 2 do.
Could they increase the tax on tobbacco by a buck & raise Millions...Yes...Will they NO.
Could they raise the tax on Booze & raise Millions...Yes..Will they NO.
Because then they couldn't get re elected.
You voted them into office. Now live with it!
Ironic isn't it.
