    No person could state that Nevada is in better shape because it has no income tax.  It ranks 50 (actually 51) in everything good. And 1 in everything bad.  It has no money to even replace light bulb in street lamps. Worst this worst that.  All because it is revenue starved because it hates taxes.  Only when the Feds come to dump money in for free does it spend on necessary things.  You think Sandoval accepted Obamacare Medicaid money because he felt sorry for the ill, dying Nevadans?  No way.  He saw some free cash and grabbed it.  Bridge bypass to Hoover dam?  Fifty years of discussion.  9/11 paid for it.

    Funny how these states with "low" taxes mooch.  

    •  Oh yeah (4+ / 0-)

      Oh yeah, forgot to tell you it costs 300-800 annually to register a car.  The cost shift to poor people is so exaggerated that no one outside the state even believes it.  

      •  I used to buy groceries & booze in Wendover (0+ / 0-)

        Back when gas was $1.40 a gallon, I would sometimes buy groceries and booze in Wendover.

        I still hit up a Las Vegas Trader Joe's when I am in southern Nevada so I don't have to pay ripoff Utah state liquor monopoly prices.
