Why California Is Broke...

...and why states like Illinois and Connecticut are following close at its footsteps:

Fight businesses with outrageously onerous regulations, offer illegals all the privileges of a citizen, raise taxes to levels that prompt both businesses (as in the case of CA) and individuals (as in MD and most other deep blue states) to flee the state,.......the reasons are as endless as the collectivist utopian dreams of progressives.
No wonder why the census bureau found that there is a net migration away from these states and in to red states!

Will the last person leaving these failed Democrat run states please turn the lights off?

Um, I don't think anyone will need to turn the lights off. Progressive energy policies are designed to ensure that we do not have sufficient power to provide electric lighting.

Obama vowed in 2008: “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted ... Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.”
