Arthur Laffer and the ALEC have a report out with lots of economic, tax, and regulatory data about the individual states. This chart caught my eye:
They have a hundred pages explaining why these trends might be, but you and I already know, don't we, just from looking at the names of the states. It is fairly clear that the current Administration is emulating the policies of the bottom 10 in its recovery plans. Which brings me back to the question I have asked before: Where do we all migrate to for freedom when we have screwed up this country?
