The only reason MA leads in taxes and total income is that the state is known as Taxachussetts.....and you need a high income to afford to live there.

There's not a lot of smoke stack industry nor jobs for blue collar workers, other than as service folks for the 'rich' college educated folks in high paying jobs.

Not to worry, the new Obama Kare taxes on the medical supplier industry will hurt that industry and cause much of it to move overseas.

MD? MD has lots of high paying jobs, but folks are fleeing to lower tax VA...just across the river. and a lot of MD folks work for the government or government contractors, ripping off the taxpayers with a bloated bureaucracy at high salaries. My sister is one of them. Lives in MD but planning on bugging out in a year when she retires. Tired of the traffic and the high taxes. Her kids are gone..no reason to stay there.

I'll stick with TX..... and if you want college educated yuppie-ville with high paying jobs and a college town...move to Austin TX.....if you can afford it....

MA and mD? Wow... you can't afford most of the state....and if you move to the boonies, you still have high state taxes and not much of the way in benefits of the Nanny State.....

Plus...it snows blizzards in MA.....parts of the coast got wiped out by the last super storm.....they get NOr'easters.....

even worse..MD and MA are over run by dem welfare weenies and queenies.....and those enabling them.
