Edit: Where’s Promised Prosperity?

For years, Republicans have been assuring the rest of us that Idaho's tax rates are so high that it's crippling our economy. Just lower the rates, they say, and the economy will prosper. House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, repeated the mantra Tuesday. In defense of his radical plan to raises taxes on the poor and middle class while lowering them on the rich, Moyle said: "Idaho is not very competitive when you look at our surrounding states. ... I want to assure you: This plan is good for Idaho." Where's his proof?/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Anyone know where Idaho's prosperity is?
