Yet the Jan 28th data remains the same as the state unemployment #'s are current. And while I like Forbes their data is from and for 2013, while the PEW article I cited is for 2014. Please try to keep current.

I will give you one thing about Maine, their Governor does seem to be quite a whack job!

WVEXPAT "January 28, 2014 What do Maine, Wisconsin, and Wyoming all have in common?"

Forbes "2013 List Of The Best States For Business"

"Wyoming had the biggest fall, down eight places to No. 23." "Maine ranks last for the fourth straight year. Not much has changed." "Wisconsin No. 41 out of 50"

January 7, 2014, What do North Dakota, Texas and Arizona have in common? They are predicted by Pew Research to be the top job growth states in 2014 AND they have Republican Governors!

It seems Dem's need to update their memo!

""June 14, 2013 What do Maine, Wisconsin, and Wyoming all have in common?"

Goose,

You cut/paste was citing data from 2012 and early 2013 and things change.

"The state’s private sector, according to BLS preliminary data, added 28,100 private-sector jobs between April and July, the best total since records began in 1990, according to Workforce Development. In August, the private sector added another 7,300 jobs. Based on those estimates, Wisconsin ranked in the Top 10 for private-sector job growth." "The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s coincident index recently ranked Wisconsin No. 2 in the nation for job growth during the most recent three-month period — the best ranking in the index’s history." (Watchdog)

Sorry to burst your bubble!

The bottom lie, a young person from either Harvard, Yale or West Virginia Northern, is foolish to purchase a health care plan that is twice the cost of what others might pay for the same coverage. I'm actually surprised the number released is 25%. I would think it to be much lower.

Motherfgoose, Wisconsin and Maine are solidly blue states that happen to have a GOP governor like Michigan. Don't be an idiot..

Oh wait, that is impossible for you to do!

The off season election of 2010 gave the Democrats the worst defeat in 100 years

. What is the BS about GOP NOT winning elections? If the GOP didn't WIN, you wouldn't be whining about tea party day and night.

Typical Gooseloser rebuttal. Plagiarize another loon’s silly diatribe and sandwich it between two slices of “right wing extremist teabagging talking point morons teabagging ThrillSlober moron lemming in parakeets clothing” babble. Too funny.

But the article Goosy plagiarized is correct on one point - since state Governors are powerless to repeal Obamacare, they’re forced to do what they can to mitigate it’s devastating effects on the citizens of their states. Thanks for nothing, Barry LIAR OF THE YEAR Obamboozler.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the Republicans have accepted that as millions of people sign up for it and finally get the health care they have been dreaming of for their families, nobody’s going to take that away,” he said.

So Dems are running from Obamacares and Repubs are embracing?

Thats why ThrillSlober is a moron. A lemming in parakeets clothing.

"As governors from both parties gathered in Washington this weekend, some GOP governors echo Fallin, reporting that a full repeal of the law would be complicated at best, if not impossible, as states move forward with implementation and begin covering millions of people — both by expanding Medicaid rolls for lower-income residents or through state or federal exchanges that offer federal subsidies to those who qualify."

Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, who leads the Democratic Governors Association, said governors spent about half of their private lunch session on Saturday discussing the health care law and the tone was much different than in past years.

“Before the election, it felt like a*****fight,” Shumlin said, describing the debate over the law during the 2012 campaign. “Down there we were talking about ways to we could cooperate.”

"June 14, 2013 What do Maine, Wisconsin, and Wyoming all have in common? They are the only states to have negative job growth in the last year–according to a new report by the Pew Charitable Trusts–and they’re all governed by Republicans. With Republican governors like Maine Gov. Paul LePage threatening to shut down his state if he doesn’t get tax cuts for the wealthy and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker focusing his attention on an intrusive forced ultrasounds bill, it’s no wonder these states are underperforming their peers. While Democratic governors are focusing on job growth, it seems that Republicans just haven’t gotten the memo."

Why are they known as morons?

"Apparently Demorats up for reelection DO care. Barry Obamboozler is now so toxic their campaigns wouldn't touch Barry Obamboozler with a ten-foot endoscope..."

A right wing extremist teabagging talking point that the morons keep repeating. You just gotta smile when the party who can't win elections, seems to know everything about elections. Lets take a look at teabagging governors recently elected, and lets ask who really does have buyers remorse now in VA, NJ, FLA, MICH, WISC, Maine.....

The stats are clear on the poor voting majority Dem. States get Fed money for a lot of reasons. Southern states get a lot of disaster relief money historically. When it comes to welfare spending per capita there are a couple of Red states in the top 10, but Dem states otherwise.

Mitt Romney said 47% of America were the takers and he would never get their vote. Well Romney got almost exactly 47% of the vote. Where do most of the Republican states reside? In the south where they get the biggest percentage of taxpayers money and pay the least. Just because some rightwing propoganda site says different doesn't make it fact. This bs about 47% of the people not paying tax is bs, even the poorest people pay SS an Medicare tax. Even people on welfare pay tax whenever they purchase anything.

Isn't any suprise according to a study by Gallop reported in the USA Today that WV is the most miserable state to live in in America. You are dead wrong just pick up a map and look at you Red states, most of them receive far more Federal money than the Blue states. Yes WV state politics are Democrat but in national elections WV has become a Republican state. Now if all these poor people vote Democrat explain why the we have solid Republican south. The bottom poorest states in the USA all vote Republican.

Good point Troll! " like most all Republican states WV". The Red State/Blue State rant labels WV as a Red State based on recent Presidential elections yet if you look at Senators/Rep/Gov level WV is clearly a Blue state.

Ohiodolt, your “Republican states ... receives more from the government ... than most Democratic voting states do” myth has been debunked numerous times here. American Thinker published a thorough debunking of it if you're interested in facts. Continue parroting your simplistic liberal lie if you wish to continue looking like a simpleton just to entertain us, though. LOL
