I am surprised that Arizona is number 47. The others appear to be fly-over country. Hahahaha.
But, it's simple as to why AZ is where it is financially...
Dimcrats moving to AZ to escape high taxation that they created in CA - continue voting Dims into office in there!
I have one tiny bit of respite in Prescott Valley, AZ - it's among the last conservative redoubts left in AZ. BUT, it's changing faster with more stupid Dims moving in every day!
