Battle of the States

In the coming months, we will see two things in state politics:

  1. States will be pursing economic recovery with Republican governors will be pushing fewer taxes and lower tax rates, while Democratic states (like Illinios) will increase taxes. The Wall Street Journal's Kimberly Strassel looks at neighbors Wisconsin and Illinois for just such a divergence of policy.
  2. We will also see just how interconnected our state and national economies really are.

It might be ugly, but it will be entertaining.
