Looking into the $200 billion bailout of state governments contained in the “stimulus,” Fred Barnes “talked to state treasurers from Indiana, Nebraska, and Mississippi last week. They said their states don’t need the money.”
Hmm. . . three financially solvent states in this time of economic woe, where other jurisdictions have shortfalls which their respective executives are attributing not to their policies, but to the economy.Â How then do these states manage not to need a federal bailout?
Maybe we should look at the policies of those states’ governors, all three of them Republicans.
