    State Debt Woes Grow Too Big to Camouflage

    Payback Time - States? Debt Woes Grow Too Big to Camouflage - NYTimes.com

    Worst state.. Alaska.

    Interesting article, that exposes quite a lot. 4 of the top 5 debt ridden states can be considered Red or "redish", and California may be taking the headlines but it is in no way as bad a state as Alaska or Rhode Island.

    With such a small population and tons of potential revenue from oil drilling, you wonder how Alaska even managed to go broke at all.

    Would this be the reason Palin resigned way before her Term as Governor was complete?

    obamacare "pays" its ways by placing TWO HUNDRED BILLION dollars of TAB on our already bankrupt states

    Governors balk over what healthcare bill will cost states - The Boston Globe

    Q: how does obama get the cbo to say his PIG is a deficit reducer?

    A: he tells the STATES to pay his BILLS for him

    LOL!

    (why don't liberals like links?)

    I don't see how you believe RI is a "red" state, but most of the major states in huge trouble are all liberal democratic: NJ, NY, CA, IL, OR.

    Even if AK has issues, there's not many people there? If CA, NY and IL go into bankruptcy the nation is in deep trouble.

    Personally, I look forward to the breaking of the public unions, and their pensions being severely reduced, even for current retirees.

    The obscene GM bailout that used MY money to pay for the retiree benefits of GM workers was an unforgivable crime - and now the Obama welfare/health care plan. I'm losing not only my incentive to work, but to stay in this country.
