On my blog I compare current unemployment rates and state tax rates. It's quite enlightening when the facts are presented without spin.
It doesn't suprise me that Virginia does well, thanks to all the government hiring. How is that not a result of government spending tax payer money? It is, it is just federal spending, not state.
Exactly - and I mention Virginia in the blog.
I am curious to see data on the other 40 states. Say the worst ten States for unemployment and their tax ranking. i would love to know how #'s 47, 43, 42, 41, 40, 38, 37, 36, 34, 33, 32 are doing. Excepting Virgina and NH these look like the States that avoided the housing boom and bust, or States with low population density to begin with.
Where did you source your data?
