Indiana is Best at Budgeting

The stats are out. 

 Every state in the U.S. is projected to have a deficit in 2012.  Many states are going broke, cutting programs and hiking tuitions.

Who has the lowest projected deficit, you might ask?????

Indiana's projected deficit is only 2%.  (This is a percentage of the fiscal budget for 2012)

The next closest is Iowa at 3.5%

Then Idaho at 3.9%

Evidently - the "I"'s have what it takes to control spending.


Who's in trouble?  No real surprises

Nevada at 45.2%

New Jersey at 37.4%

Texas at 31.5%

California at 29.3%


Glad to be a Hoosier!
