Skip to comments.New York State rated “F” for financial practices

The Chicago-based group Truth in Reporting gives the state a grade of F in its new 50-state analysis of government spending and budgeting.
Specifically, the reports authors faulted New York for its relatively high pension and health care obligations, as well as its high tax burden.
California, New Jersey, Illinois and Massachusetts earned similarly low scores from the group.

That’s not surprising.
Pretty bad when an Illinois city is giving your city an “F” rating in finances ..... just saying.
From the state that couldn’t pay over $600 if someone won on their lottery.......guess that’s “fixed” now.
Oops meant “STATE” given the rating.
C for corruption.
D for Depravity and derilection
B for Breach
A for Atrocity
E for Evil
I say give them all rankings.
Thanks george76. Gosh, you’d think that giving “free” college educations to middle class students would juice the NY economy into unprecedented prosperity!!! ;^)
My Dad and his buddy who loved on Texas Lane gave the state an F around 1963. They always complained all their tax money went to NYC and nothing went to upstate.
Dad’s buddy changed his address plaque on his mailbox to read “Taxes Lane.” I remember telling him once that he had misspelled it and Dad and he got a good laugh out of “the kid’s” naiveté.
And Illinois, Washington, Oregon, and California?
Buddies wanted to go to a concert but I was not about to pay $100 - one guy said come one I will buy your ticket so I went.
It is easy to spend other peoples money.
All of them are liberal states. Just a coincidence, or is there something about liberal governance which leads to financial problems????
Dems always rate an F for financial practices. Look at the DNC’s balances. Amazingly, they all retire as multimillionaires, while making $150,000
Connecticut grade was F minus minus minus... :-)
