They need to stop presenting this info as if it refers to the people who live there.

The correct title would be: "10 State Governments that have budget shortfalls".

It's no surprise that 12 of the 15 states listed above voted for Obama.

What's that's supposed to mean? Obama caused their problems? Interesting, since Bush was president when this downturn started. Well, if you want to go with political bs, why don't you consider these facts?

The 12 most uneducated states (percentage of bachelors degree holders, from highest to lowest):

38. Idaho
39. South Carolina
40. Wyoming
41. Indiana
42. Tennessee
42. Oklahoma
44. Alabama
45. Nevada
46. Louisiana
47. Kentucky
48. Mississippi
49. Arkansas
50. West Virginia

Guess how many voted for McCain? 10 out of the 12. Now if we use your logic: I guess we shouldn't be surprised that the least educated states voted for McCain.

Interesting that 5 of the top 10 states have HUGE problems with illegal immigration. I wish our federal gov't would get a plan together on how to handle all types of immigration properly because its killing our states' finances.

Definitely. Anyone who knows anything knows that Obama is actually an Islamic sleeper-cell and he actually hates America. Those stupid states were so desperate, they were willing to believe anything!

Wait a minute...9 of the 10 wealthiest states also voted for Obama...9 of the 10 poorest states voted for McCain. So the most financially troubled people voted for McCain and the lady who doesn't believe in dinosaurs. The most financially troubled governments voted for Obama.

Any claim about financial instability related to voting for Obama is ridiculous.

Obviously Obama is to blame for all of this; Lets just dismiss all the BS that we put up with Bush for over 8 years. It makes perfect sense.
