Hoffman Applauds 2011 Legislature

Wayne Hoffman of the Idaho Freedom Foundation is pooh-poohing all the individuals, including Your Huckleberry Hound and most of this blog's readers, who have written off the 2011 Legislature as the worst in memory. If this is our idea of bad, Hoffman sez, he hopes the 2012 Legislature is worse. (If that's possible.) Quoth Hoffman: “I guess they didn't get the big government solutions they were hoping for. In reality, this was one of the best legislative sessions in recent memory, one that will have long-term benefits for Idahoans. Idaho lawmakers should be thanked for balancing the budget without raising taxes, for putting students first in our education system and for beginning to turn the tide on entitlement spending.” I still don't understand how anyone can parrot that students were put first when millions and millions of dollars will be siphoned from teacher salaries to buy computers. Oh wait. I forgot the Idaho Education Association is evil. My bad. You can read Hoffman's comment here.

Question: How can the 2012 Legislature possibly be worse than the 2011 one?
