Basic strategy. Old school, register and get them to the polls.

38 million Latinos in Texas. Only 4 million voted in the last election.

We know that families over 50K in income voted GOP and those below voted heavily Dem. So I would bet anything the bulk of the "payers" in blue states are either GOP or half GOP.

Thanks for the breaking news!

I will give you one chance to figure out how stupid this is. Hint, the majority of entitlement spending is by is in Social Security. How do old people tend to vote?

It gives the exact same information on it. The picture itself says that is where the information comes from. Yet, instead of adressing the information provided (because you can't), you again attack the source.

The conservative media bubble has you so brainwashed you refuse to even look at something you disagree with and instead you attack it. And you can't say the same for me, because you lack an ability to provide actually, factually information.

It's a good thing Dear Leader has devoted all his efforts to reforming SS and Medicare like he said he would.

Get over yourself, junior. I can't address the info provided because there's nothing in the graphic, or readily apparent on the website included in the graphic, that explains the underlying data in enough detail to answer the specific question about federal workforce. You're too caught up in mindlessly regugitating arguments you find in your liberal media bubble that you don't even bother applying any critical thought.

And again, that website is not where you found that graphic. I can only assume you're embarrassed by the sites you get your talking points from.

Another state that voted for Obama...

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Is a Broke-Ass Sinkhole of Despair

In 2011, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania went bankrupt. Municipally bankrupt. The city is broke, tapped, in penury, scraping by on nada. Personal bankruptcy is tragic, and corporate bankruptcy is financially significant, but there is something especially pitiful about municipal bankruptcies. An entire city of thousands, whose leadership has failed them. It's like watching a scrappy but flailing football team losing in a particularly bloody way.

When it comes to Pitiful Bankrupt Municipal Messes, Harrisburg is working to establish a new, lower floor. As a great author once wrote, more or less, in an effort to help writing-blocked journalists of the future: Happy cities are all alike; every unhappy city is unhappy in its own way. Harrisburg is unhappy in the "our streets are riddled with sinkholes that we cannot afford to repair, rendering our entire landscape a veritable moonscape of nature's trap doors." The WSJ reports:


Harrisburg officials have identified at least 40 other sinkholes around the 50,000-person city. The combination of particularly sandy soil and leaky pipes under Harrisburg's streets make it susceptible to sinkholes, city officials say... It would cost almost half of the city's $50 million budget to permanently fix them, a city engineer estimates.

Harrisburg is bankrupt because it spent over $300 million on trash incinerator, btw.

Retirees May Want to Avoid
By Philip Moeller | U.S.News & World Report LP – Fri, Nov 20, 2009 3:00 AM EST.. .
.

If you're nearing retirement or are considering relocating to a different state any time in the next several years, you need to do some careful thinking about how the recession and housing downturn have affected the finances of different states. The National Governors Association says it will take a decade for states to recover. Many states have had little choice but to raise taxes and fees in the teeth of the recession, and further increases are likely. Even so, public services will decrease, especially after one-time funds from the federal stimulus program stop flowing to the states.



More from USNews.com:

• America's Best Affordable Places to Retire

• Slide Show: America's Best Affordable Places to Retire

• Find Your Best Place to Retire


These financial dilemmas will affect the quality of residents' lives, and could change your thinking about the place you'd like to spend your retirement years.

The Pew Center for the States recently released a study listing what it judged to be the country's 10 most imperiled states:

California
•Arizona
Rhode Island
•Michigan
•Oregon
•Nevada
•Florida
•New Jersey
•Illinois
•Wisconsin


California is the unfortunate poster child for states that have been effectively bankrupted during the past few years. Pew ranked all 50 states using six factors that it said had played major roles in California's spiraling financial decline: 1) high mortgage foreclosure rates; 2) worsening unemployment; 3) loss of state revenues; 4) the percentage size of the state's budget shortfall; 5) a legislative supermajority requirement that makes it hard to enact tax and budget cuts, and 6) a Pew ranking of how poorly each state managed its money. California had the high score of 30—a bad thing in this ranking—and scores in the other nine states ranged from 28 in Arizona down to 22 in Wisconsin. Pew noted, however, that many other states also were hurting and, in fact, the national average state score was 17.

While Pew focused on the more troubled states, it's worth noting the 10 states that had the lowest, or best, scores on its ranking system:

Wyoming (score: 6)
•Iowa (score: 7)
Nebraska (score: 7)
•Montana (score: 9)
•North Dakota (score: 9)
•Texas (score: 9)

•Pennsylvania (score: 11)
Utah (score: 11)
•South Dakota (score: 12)
•West Virginia
(score: 12)

Of these states, Wyoming, Texas, and South Dakota have no state income tax. RetirementLiving.com has a detailed look at the various taxes levied by each state. To help provide a rough guide of how far your dollars will go in other places, SalaryExpert.com has a free set of city cost-of-living reports that include comparisons with other cities.

There are, of course, many other reasons why a location might or might not be attractive. But it can't hurt to see which places might be most friendly to your finances.
