State legislatures, in 47 States and Puerto Rico have thus far enacted budgets for fiscal 2012.



Guess which states have not!!!!!!


Take a wild guess??????






While the Federal government remains embroiled in the debt ceiling debate, more than 20 States are poised to record surpluses.



The Conservative values are working, folks!

Why doesn't our Federal Government, or the remaining 3 States, get it?
Clue: Common Denominator... Collective Progressivism

This notion of budget 'surpluses' are only because the federal government subsidizes several state functions. Remove the donations from the federal government and guess what - major red in all state budgets.

No, it's called having one party control the governorship and the other party controlling the legislature.

The states that hadn't passed a budget weren't exactly the bluest of blue states that you'd think.
