Taxachusetts Uber Alles!

Massachusetts is the best state in the union. - Slate Magazine

So high income is no guarantee of good social outcomes and strong investments in people clearly haven’t punished one of our wealthiest and most globally competitive state economies. In fact, if America wants to be a healthy, smart, rich, globalized, high-tech powerhouse, we arguably have no better model than Massachusetts.
If you're feeling adventurous, I left a comment in response to what looked like one of many sneakily racist observations like, "of course Massachusetts nice, it's full of white people!" I'm guessing some indignant racist will have gasped with horror and penned a counter reply defending use of higher percentage of white people as a measure of how much better those places are than other places with, you know, the darkies.
