The Do Nothing Deval/Obamunist economy continues.

Must be Bush's fault or Fox News' fault. Did Solo consult with Rush Limbaugh? Is that what happened?

Another ignorant comment from someone who doesn't let facts interfere with their beloved hatred of government.
"CNBC's Top States For Business 2010 Countdown—Massachusetts Is No. 5
It was first in one category, second in another and third in yet one more. The state also just missed the top five in a fourth individual category.

Massachusetts was one of just two states to post five top-ten showings."

"This week the U.S. Census Bureau released its annual update of State and Local Government Finances, providing national data for Fiscal Year 2008. The amount of state and local taxes paid in Massachusetts as a share of total personal income was 10.3 percent in FY 2008. By this measure, Massachusetts had lower taxes than 30 other states"
