In today's Spokesman Review we have an article explaining how Idaho is one of two states that collects taxes on the sale of Girl Scout cookies. The tone of the article leans heavily towards the state taking advantage and victimizing the Girl Scouts. The state will "gobble up" 22 cents on the sale of every box. This amounts to about $140,000 a year, which is referred to as their (the Girl Scouts) money. The state is balancing its budget on the backs of Brownies.
