I would basically agree. Don’t how AZ wound up on the bad boy list. Thought Jan Brewer was doing a good job, especially on illegal immigration.

I always thought Texas should be up there: They have:
1) No state income tax.
2) Right to work
3) Tort reform
4) Drill baby drill
5) An enforced capital punishment.
6) Gun rights
7) A pro-business environment and state government.

Could you ask for more?

I would also add Wisconsin under Walker and Kasich under Ohio and Indiana under both Pence and his predecessor to the well-managed list.

I live in CA. I can attest: We are the worst of the worse, only our national government in DC is more poorly mismanaged.

The article discusses the methodology a bit. Unfortunately, the authors seem to be of the “raising taxes = fiscal responsibility” persuasion.

Forgot to mention, Texas also has a part time state legislature-—the state really does subscribe to the first rule of governance: Do no harm.

Indiana really made some great reforms and strides under Mitch Daniels. I suspect Mike Pence will add to that.

AZ spends too way much trying to make liberals happy - which is impossible - but our government seems reasonably competent, otherwise. I wouldn’t say 47th - somewhere in the 20’s, maybe.

TX is okay but 8) sent Kay Bailey Moron Hutchinson to the US Senate.

But I can’t talk...the idiots I live with in TN sent Lamar! Alexander and Bob Porker Corker.
