Why is Idaho ranked eighth for the lowest overall tax burden in America (this includes its sales tax), while Oregon ranks 33rd? Oregon is 30% higher on a national scale?

As I read through the opinion pages of this paper on the upcoming Greater Idaho ballot measure, 31-007, I was reminded of how quickly hyperbole and rhetoric dominate and rise to the surface of opinions. Via unsubstantiated claims. Fortunately, facts and truth always rise above that.
