here in washington state the democratic party has ruled because of the king county area, almost all of the eastern side of state republican, yet the western side democratic rule has driven our taxation to be one of the highest in the nation, government waste here is so evident its sickening, by me a state park was created for the bird watchers- a gravel parking lot with maybe 15 parking spots and a out house and 100 yard paved trail = 3 millon dollars, a local outfit that does driveways and such said should have only cost 2oo-300k at the very most, yet no one in our state has a answer for it, the old oh well its done already attitude
this is just the tip of the iceburg here, the democrats here just keep spending more and more and we see more and more taxation, my vehicle tabs last year 48.00, this year 164.00-really
Do you all actually believe that it is a Republican or Democrat problem or the puppet masters?
Lead by examples. California and its cities must cut its generous salary, nice health insurance, huge pension, and unnecessary benefits to keep budgets under control.
If they don't, bankruptcy Chapter 9 is the only way to go and more bankruptcy to near cities in California.
The "8 blue and 2 red" is accurate in the context of how the state voted in the 2008 presidential race. It also happens that the 2 red states are two of the top 3 states hit hardest by the real estate crash (insert blame to fit your personal leanings here).
5 minutes of research will show you that while there 5 governors of each party head these 10 states, their tenure of each party occupying their respective governors' mansions differ a lot. The 5 Republicans have been office an average of 2.4 years while the Democratic Party has been in office an average of 7.8 years. Draw your own conclusions on who has had a bigger impact on this mess.
Michelle, you really think Christie caused this mess in NJ in just 2 short years in office and that crook Corzine had nothing to do with it??? In actuality, it was neither's fault. The system where we make way too many promises to too many people that are unsustainable is to blame. We are too greedy as a society and we all think someone else is to blame and someone else needs to pay more.
People - all you have to do is do a quick search on who are our states governors and you will see that there are 5 states whose governors are republican and 5 statates whose governors are democrat. Interestingly, two governors who have been in the news - Christie and Bower are among those whose states make the list. Christie was right not to make a bigger fool out of himself and run for President sparing the rest of the country from what New Jersey is going through and Bower needs to wag her finger over the horrible accounting practices she has used - not at the President and people who are not white.
