"A decade ago all three states were among America's most prosperous. California was the unrivaled technology center of the globe. New York was its financial capital. New Jersey is the third wealthiest state in the nation after Connecticut and Massachusetts. All three are now suffering from devastating budget deficits as the bills for years of tax-and-spend governance come due."
"These states have been models of "progressive" policies that are supposed to create wealth: high tax rates on the rich, lots of government "investments," heavy unionization and a large government role in health care."
If these three "model states" are failing, what is going to happen when the country experiences it nationally?
P.S. Since it's Friday, the 1200 page "Cap & Trade" bill is slated to be presented to Congress and voted on TODAY! Hang on folks!
