Best And Worst Run States

By Terry McGahey

Wall Street rates the best and worst run states by using, debt per capita, budget deficit, and unemployment percentages.

Below I will give you my findings from the Wall Street figures, oddly enough, the worst states are run by liberals and progressives, isn't that strange?

First, the best states:

Number five of the best is Iowa. It's debt per capita is $1,690.00 which is the seventh lowest in the country. Their budget is 20.3 % which is 18th lowest and the unemployment rate is 5.9 % which is 6th lowest.

Number four is Utah. Their debt per capita equals $2,356.00 which is 15th lowest. budget deficit is 14.7%. which is 25th largest and the unemployment rate in Utah is at 6.7%, tied at 11th lowest.

Number three is Nebraska. Their debt per capita is $1,279.00 which is 2nd lowest. The budget deficit equals 9.7% the 34th largest, and their unemployment rate is at 6.7% tied at 11th lowest.

Number two is Wyoming. their debt per capita is $2,694.00 which is 18th lowest. Their budget deficit equals 10.3% which is 32 largest and the unemployment rate is 6.0%, the 6th lowest.

Number one is North Dakota. With the oil boom they jumped to the top of the chart. Their debt per capita is $3,284.00 which is 22nd lowest, the budget deficit equals none, and their unemployment rate is 3.5% which is the lowest in the nation.

Now on to the worst run states in the nation:

Coming in at number five is New Jersey. Their debt per capita is $6,944.00 which is 5th highest. Their budget deficit equals 38.2%, the 4th largest, and their unemployment rate equals 9.3% which is the 14th highest.

Number four is Arizona. Their debt per capita is $2,188.00 which is the 12 lowest. Their budget deficit equals 39.0%, the 3rd largest, and their unemployment rate is 9.5% tied at 13th place.

Number three is Illinois. Their debt per capita is $4,790.00 which comes in at 11th highest. Their budget deficit equals 40.2% which is the 2nd largest, and their unemployment rate is 9.8% tied at the 10th highest.

Number two is Rhode Island. Their debt per capita is $9,018.00, the third highest in the nation. Their budget deficit equals 13.4% which is the 28th highest, and their unemployment rate is at 11.3%, the 2nd highest in the nation.

Can anyone guess which state came in at number one? Of course, it's California! Their debt per capita equals $4,008.00. Their budget deficit equals 20.7% which is the 17th highest in the nation, and the unemployment rate stands at 11.7%, 2nd highest in the nation.

With the exception of Arizona, each one of the worst states are run by liberals and progressives. This should prove to people that socialism does not work!

I will never understand how people in these states complain about the problems, yet keep voting for the same old Socialists. Quit doing it! You can't expect things to change for the better if you keep doing the same old things as in the past, by doing this your outcome will always stay the same.

One of the reasons Arizona is in trouble is because they got caught in a situation of circumstances. People from all over the country, especially California, began flooding into Arizona for the weather and jobs. The housing boom was going strong, and then in 2008 the bottom fell out of the economy.

Because of this, there is a glut of homes in Arizona, and one of the first signs of crawling out of an economic down turn is the rise in construction, and with the glut of homes, construction in Arizona is at a low. Now this isn't the only reason but one of the main ones. The timing is what hurt Arizona more than anything else.
