Idaho Among Biggest Non-Payers

Using a Tax Foundation map of the United States, David A. Graham of The Atlantic is reporting that 47 percent of Americans don't pay income tax. Idaho is among the 10 states with the highest amount of non-income-tax payers. In his now infamous comments re: non-payers, Mitt Romney said that states with the most non-payers are likely to vote for President Obama.
