    I'm surprised Florida didn't top the list. I used to volunteer at a soup kitchen down there, and the seniors were endless.

    And the saddest part is, no matter what we do, as long as we rank them, there will always be a worst seven States no matter what else we change.

    It the mature of ranking things. and anybody is free to spin it however they please.

    But when the same states have the same problem year after year, it make you wonder about their ability to get things done.

    And why are they going hungery! Well do you think the cost of livin has gone up on average of 15% under Obamamoa! If they are living just on SSAN ! Then yea there going to be more hungery seniors! Lets see the dollar has lost 49% of it's value under Obamamoa. If the senoirs wanted to work they can't cause there's 23 million other people needing work cause Obamamoa hasn't created a job making economic situation. There taxes have gone up under Obamamoa and will continue to go up as he spends us into oblivian. Maybe if he hadn't wasted 5.4 Trillion dollars we'd be in a better place and the seniors wouldn't be going hungery!:steamed:

    You know, it reminds me of a question I asked a few weeks ago, and strangely, no one would answer so I'll bring it up again.

    suppose a man worked all his life and had a million dollars in the bank. If he had retired before Obama took office what would the buying power of the interest on that money, his retirement income, have been?

    what would it be now?

    That would be $10,000 a year at current interest rates- but remember it would be taxed at 15%. I know the pain of this when my dad passed in 2007 he had accured just over 1 million dollars, after taxes- 45% death tax we kids got what was left, 4 of my sibblings still were tax by there states at another 45% on what they got! Now if that isn't BS I don't know what is! My Dad was taxed while making that money through 35 years of hard work- taxed every year on the investment income then ****ed for another 45% when he died! And the Dumocrats still keep ****ing us cause they will not let the Death tax die!:steamed:

    Pretty much nothing in interest. But the big corporatocracy loves that low interest, and they fund congress.

    But as far as state by state comparisons of interests, I bet it doesn't vary much, so there must be another reason why certain states have a problem.

    You are really an economic whizz kid aren't you:upeyes:

    It isnt the "States" that "have the problem" genius, it is the individuals and that is because big Government Obamao has driven the economy in the crapper and money isn't circulating (News flash JK Galbraith Jr, Corporations make MORE money when money is flowing).

    Now I can't speak for the other States but I can bloody well give you a microcosm of the US in my State. We are a "republican County, in a Democratic State. We are very often a retirement destination. Retirees move here for a variety of reasons and a lot of them are on fixed incomes or on incomes related to the market. They have generally been a bit better off than most. Now, they are having to sell their retirement homes for less than they paid (thank you liberals and the loans that caused the bubble) and move to more "affordable" accomodations or locals and many of them are reversing the "child moving back in with the parents" and moving in with their kid not for medical reasons, but for economic ones. Now is that the fault of my County being solidly Republican? NO But as a Republican County it WAS a more friendly retirement location because of far lower County taxes. We drew more retirees, so we have more retirees and if they are huting we have more hurting retirees.

    Pretty blipping simple.

    exactly. but when they retired not only were interest rate higher but costs were lower. It is not the fault of the majority party in a State.

    In our case people moved here because we have lower taxes

    we have lower taxes because we have less services

    they made that choice to take advantage, financially, of it.

    I moved here before I retired for a number of reasons and was aware of it too.

    Again, the cause of their poverty isn't the majority party of that State.

    Red states, on average have more old people in them.

    Blue states are too damn expensive to retire in. When 65 comes, people have to start making hard choices and hanging around to get ripped off by high taxes isn't usually one of them.

    Just try retiring in CT, or NY or CA if you're not rich. Dare you.

    Odd, I wouldn't consider New Mexico "Red." It's voted D since 1992 (except for 2004, and even then Bush only won by 0.7%) and registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by 16 points. Why does the OP consider it a Red state, aside from the opinion reinforcing his preferred narrative?
