@_Tucker39 @SuperAG01 @illhonky @KMCRadio Lets break it down. First, you're absolutely wrong about unemployment. There's one deep blue state in the top 50% of states - Vermont. The bottom 20% are all blue states (PA, NJ, IL, MA, NM, CA, HA, NY, RI, NV).
@_Tucker39 @SuperAG01 @illhonky @KMCRadio I'll challenge you on infrastructure also. 7 of the worst 10 states for infrastructure are (many of the same) blue states. Only one blue state is in the top 50% - again Vermont. The situation is actually worsening in the Northeast.
@_Tucker39 @SuperAG01 @illhonky @KMCRadio The 2nd piece (after infrastructure) of what I call the fiscal trifecta of doom is unfunded liabilities. The bottom 15 are dominated by the same deep blue states (NJ, IL, CT, HA, NM, CA, RI, PA, MA). The bottom 3 are in serious fiscal crisis.
@_Tucker39 @SuperAG01 @illhonky @KMCRadio The 3rd piece of the fiscal trifecta of doom is tax buden. Blue states are 7 of the bottom 10 (20%) - highest tax load, in order (NY, HA, VT, CT, NJ, RI, IL). Critical because the tax load prevents these states from responding to the other critical issues.
@_Tucker39 @SuperAG01 @illhonky @KMCRadio Finally, you're wrong on business climate as well. The bottom 10% are all blue states, including CT. My home state, CT, has run numerous corporations out. Several, incl GE have moved to MA, but most have moved to the Mid-Atlantic & South.
