    You need to first calculate it on a per person basis. For example, California has approximately 20 times the number of people as Hawaii. On a per capita basis, the deficits of California and Hawaii are pretty similar.

    The other thing with the list is figuring out how to give credit for the budget. For example, John Ashcroft hasn't been governor of Missouri since 1992. He has nothing to do with the current budget situation in Missouri. Likewise Fred Thompson and Al Gore have nothing to do with state government in Tennessee.

    The total number of dollars in deficit does not reflect what percentage of the total budget that deficit is. A 32 million dollar deficit from a budget of 50 million is far different from a billion dollar deficit from a hundred billion dollar budget. So just looking at the names an number you posted doesn't help me decide a vote.

    And the number for Delaware is wrong. It ended up being 800 million in deficit.

On contraire! Socialism would not artwork! Obama has a unsafe assurance of vast momma government, and that's doomed to failure. seem around. Why do you assume people do no longer want a passport in maximum international locations? considering the incontrovertible fact that no person fears that they're going to "sickness" lol. seem.... the guy purely isn't superb at it. must you build a rustic on irresponsible individuals, you get North Korea. a gaggle of butt kissing malnourished robots, who have self assurance fortunate to be alive purely to worship a photo of a few dude they call "superb chief"... And being for sure spineless. that's no longer the yank Dream. no person tells an American what to do.

    If it wasn't for most of those states being rich with oil, most of them woud e broke as well.

    When the oil runs out, they won't look so skilled.

    others have higher taxes than you think.
