    Run for Texas or Florida and pray they keep Conservative principles.

      The liberals will run for the low tax states too. Then once there they will start screwing it up like the state they just left. Liberals always think the other person should pay the higher taxes.

    I’m always surprised to see North Carolina on this list. Yeah, the top-tier rate is a little high, but the state sales tax is reasonable, and average property tax is *much* lower than any other state on this list. Cost of living in NC in general is pretty low.

    What happened to IL. how can this be?

  • John Rustic

    All blue States except for Wis…not a surprise I’m living in MN and it’s expensive! Gotta feed all the welfare babies!! If Minneapolis and Saint Paul disappeared this state would be the Northern version of Texas.
