    west virginia way ahead of ohio. No big surprise here.
    every year, 24/7 wall st. Conducts an extensive survey of all fifty states in america. Based on a review of data on financial health, standard of living and government services by state we determine how well each state is managed. For the first time, north dakota is the best run. california is the worst run for the second year in a row.

    california predicts $1bn budget surplus

    by matthew garrahan in los angeles


    the state was hit hard by the financial crisis, with the rate of mortgage foreclosures and unemployment much higher than the national average. Regular budget deficits forced the state to slash public services and two years ago it even had to offer ious to its creditors in lieu of cash.

    but jobs growth in the golden state, an economy larger than those of india or russia, has outpaced the national trend in the us in recent months. California’s legislative analyst’s office is projecting a $1bn budget surplus by the 2014-2015 fiscal year, as $6bn of new tax revenue is due to flood into state coffers after voters passed a staggered tax increase on individuals and families earning more than $250,000 and $500,000 a year.

    The lao said years of spending cuts, the new taxes and an economic recovery had “combined to bring california to a promising moment: The possible end of a decade of acute state budget challenges”.

    The passage of proposition 30, which increases the top rates of tax with new money ringfenced for the state’s ailing education system, was a big victory for jerry brown, california’s governor. Mr brown has urged barack obama, president, to consider the state’s election result – and the willingness of california voters to sanction new taxes on the wealthy – in his negotiations with republican congressional leaders over the so-called fiscal cliff.

    But critics of proposition 30 say it could prove harmful to california and should not be replicated at the national level. [ because it works. Just like romney's hc plan that insured almost everyone in the state. Aka...romney/obamacare.]
    Oh and BTW, lets not forget that most of the States that are now in severe financial trouble are those who bought the worthless crap Wall St was selling them as triple A investments.

    Govt is not broken. Its at the State level that things go downhill. Stupid people with WAY too much power who get into office to enrich themselves and will bow down to the highest bidder. The CU SC decision has only made things worse.

    Exactly! And with all of the Repiglican Gerrymandering, it will be harder to undo all of the Repiglican damages to our country, but that, too, may begin to change, given the Tea Party has only a nine percent approval rating, now, and Boehner only 18 % Approval, Repiglican Party the lowest approval ever recorded, think it was like 23%, lol. Same ol' nutty 23 to 28% of nutjobs.

    The times they are a-changing! Thank heaven!

    Additionally, poll numbers this morning showing Repubican Policies have lost ground, and PROVE that Repiglicans are totally out of touch with the vast majority in our country, who do NOT want Roe V. Wade overturned, (70%!)...are against the DOMA Act, in favor of Gay Marriage, in favor of reducing defense spending, in favor of maintaining SS, Mcare and Mcaid, and also against the current deregulatory gun disasters pushed through by the NRA, to dilute gun control.

    Also, most understand Global Warming, and are against continuing to ignore it.
    Polls show that 70% of Americans like president Obama, and he has a fifty-two percent approval of his policies, far better than anny Repiglicans, including their stupid Tea Party.

    IOW, the President has a very good chance of making some very excellent changes, and overturning a lot of Repiglican FUBARS!

    Repigs are on their way OUT!

    BRAVO!

    They are doing it through taxation. Not growth.
    When producers are only allowed to keep 37 cents on the dollar there will be repercussions.

    Expect to see this spike in revenues disappear in the next tax cycle because individuals and businesses will find ways to hide their money or simply leave the state.



    There isn't anything wrong with America that liberal ideology, properly applied by government experts, can't make worse.
