The states that are doing best economically are the Republican states with Conservative governors who have CUT TAXES & SPENDING.
And these Republican states with Conservative governors have had their credit ratings INCREASED, right when Obozo managed to have the credit rating of the US LOWERED.
Now, what part of this is too difficult for these libs to understand???
The fastest way to balance the budget is to CUT TAXES & SPENDING... and to defund the majority of the federal programs, beginning with, but not limited to the EPA and the Dept. of Education.
