Idaho Dems Rip Anti-Everything R’s

Idaho hasn’t seen an unemployment rate this high for more than a decade. In 2011, the Republican-controlled Legislature has made much ado about being anti-healthcare reform, anti-assisted suicide, anti-education funding, anti-urban renewal, anti-labor, and the list goes on. Idaho Republicans only listen to the GOP talking points sent from Washington, D.C., and they refuse to address what is most important to everyday Idahoans —jobs!/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Is it fair to characterize the current Idaho Republican Legislature as "anti-everything"?
