Top 10 miserable states to live in are predominately Red states and in the heart of the Bible Belt

http://homes.yahoo.com/photos/the-nation-s-most-miserable-states-1394413543-slideshow/

The survey is the result of a Well-Being index and surveys residents responses regarding their daily livelihood, health, ability to support themselves and outlook for the next five years and rankings in such categories as:

Well Being
Life Expectency
Pct. Obese
Median household income
Pct with high school diplomas

10. Louisiana
9. Oklahoma
8. Missouri
7. Tennessee
6. Arkansas
5. Ohio
4. Alabama
3. Mississippi
2. Kentucky
1. West Virginia

I'm sure if you polled them, and based on the GOP's priorities, the reason these people are amongst the worst off is because of:


Passage of Obamacare
Dems promotion of long term unemployment benefits
Dems trying to advance an increase in the minimum wage
Unions
The Dept of Education
The EPA
Abortion on demand
Gay Marriage

1. We're number 2

I'd feel better if Kentucky had done that in basketball this year.

Education is poor, job outlook is poor; a lot of this state just suffers a lot of hopelessness and people STILL vote against their best interests.

2. If not for Atlanta, Georgia would be wedged in there.

My native Georgia is Mississippi with a giant gated community in the central north.

3. I live in New Orleans. Which isn' so bad, sort of a liberal enclave, trapped in a 3rd world country

 

thats Louisiana, hated by that state because New Orleans generates most of the revenue for this state.
