Rusche: Amphibians Not Very Scary

Rep. John Rusche (RE: Giant salamander gets key vote): I love it. We can discuss and debate the state amphibian but refuse to talk about medicaid, road maintenance, antidiscrimination language or pre-k. I guess the amphibian issue is not very scary for the Republican closed primary.

Question: Would you rather have the Idaho Legislature bogged down on unimportant issues like naming a state amphibian or trying to find ways to give more trickle-down-theory tax breaks to high rollers?
