Regarding “In Idaho, the politics of voting no,” in the April 24 edition — Rep. Vito Barberi routinely challenges the efficacy, efficiency and effectiveness of government programs. On the other side of the aisle, Rep. John Rusche questions the motives of the opposition by proclaiming, “Those are people who don’t like government anyway, and so of course they don’t want to pay for it.” Rusche goes on to question why they are in government.
As the citizens of Idaho go to the polls they should keep in mind that two examples of governance are before them. One of responsible stewardship and the other of dismissive arrogance.
