Did you know Idaho has enough money to pay all of its bills, including public employee retirement benefits?

Yep, according to Idaho is one of only ten states that can pay all of its bills. In fact, Idaho has a surplus of $2,700 for each Idaho tax payer.

Compare that with Texas, which cannot pay all of its bills and is in debt -$10,100 for each Texas tax payer.

Or, California, which is in debt -$22,000 per California Tax payer!

What did Idaho do with some of that surplus tax dollars? IT CUT TAXES!
