Re: “How Idaho's Sales Tax Saddles Low-Income Households

If the state of Idaho would stop spending millions of Idaho tax dollars out-of-state, they wouldn't need to raise sales or property taxes. The Idaho taxpayers would be appalled if they knew how much of their hard-earned tax dollars went across the borders.

Re: “If People Get Help, the Terroists Have Won

Taxes aren't insurance. The quicker people understand that, the better off we will all be. It doesn't matter who is in office. If you think the government is going to rescue you, you are dead wrong, as New Orleans found out. Not even their precious mayor, who they RE-ELECTED, has done much to help. The facts are facts - politicians are what they are - POLITICIANS. Somehow a lot of people think they are more than that. THEY AREN'T.

Re: “If People Get Help, the Terroists Have Won

Where in the Constitition or Bill of Rights, or under what law does it say, the Federal Government will rescue me, buy me a new house and replace all my belongings when mine blows away in a hurricane? I am not trying to minimize what happened in New Orleans, but having been involved with disaster preparedness and response, let me tell you something. It doesn't work that way.

Re: “Sound and Fury

It's very sad to think that a non-elected Governor has this much power. Shame on Risch and his cronies. We need tax relief, not smarmy, self-righteous I-know-better-than-you-do politics. This is a money grab and nothing more. The state already has close to a $300 million dollar surplus - and apparently the legislators are frothing at the mouth to get their grubby hands on even more. Talk about taxation without representation; this is politics at its absolute worst. I am an Idaho native and will be leaving within a year, I think I'd rather live in California.
