Varnes letter: Grocery tax

Why does government always do brain surgery with a pickaxe? Regarding the grocery tax, why not just reduce it to 5 percent and see what happens to revenues? If the reduction doesn’t lead to the destruction of Idaho life as we know it, then consider reducing it 1 percent per year until it phases out. Oh, wait, that involves common sense, which often seems to be in short supply in the Capitol building.
