And so it becomes clear

After another year of cutting Idaho schools and aid to the poor and vulnerable, Idaho Republicans now seek to give tax cuts to corporations. Jeez. That's a pretty stark contrast. I'd think that Republicans would be embarrassed about doing this now, but I'm sure they don't think there's anything to be embarrassed about.

Marv Hagedorn says that history shows that the last five tax cuts caused the economy to soar.  I'm sorry Marv, but if you can believe that in this economy, after the huge Bush tax cuts, you're either stupid or so completely removed from reality and woefully ignorant as to be unqualified to be a legislator, or actually even to breath air. 

Marv, what color is the sky in your world?

Maybe Marv the Marvelous Mathematician could explain how cutting tax rates below a certain point produces less, not more, tax revenue, like increasing tax rates above that certain point produces less, not more revenue? Does Marv the Marvelous Mathematician and Excellent Economist claim to know precisely where Idaho's tax rates are on the Laffer Curve? Show us your work, Marv.
