Hoffman: Voters Want Cut, Cut, Cut

The untold and certainly most important story from the 2010 General Election in Idaho is this: Not a single representative, senator or executive branch official who supported significant reductions in government spending lost re-election Nov. 2. That's a fact. Voters rewarded those politicians who stood strong against raising taxes and re-elected candidates with an established record of cutting government spending. This, of course, includes the much-ballyhooed  decision to cut public education funding by 7.5 percent/Wayne Hoffman, Idaho Freedom Foundation. More here.

Question: Is Wayne right -- that Idahoans are only interested in cutting government, including education?
