Default Wall Street Journal rates the governors

From the Wall Street Journal

Grading the Governors
March 1, 2005; Page A18


The 50 governors are meeting in Washington this week, which makes it an apt moment for the Cato Institute to release its biennial ranking of their fiscal performance. We provide the rankings below0 (governors who recently took office aren't included) and, in addition, let us mention a few notable findings from the survey, which will be released today.

Researchers Stephen Moore and Stephen Slivinski find that the top-ranked governors have learned the dual lesson that you can't tax your way to recovery and that the best way out of a deficit is to cut spending. By that measure, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the nation's best governor. The Governator has cut taxes, slashed spending, held a "garage sale" to get rid of excess state assets, and established a budget task force that has identified $32 billion in savings over five years.


The best Democratic governor is also a relative newcomer. Bill Richardson has cut New Mexico's top rate of personal income tax to 5% from 8.2%, reduced the capital gains tax and kept spending in check. Contrast Mr. Richardson's performance with that of another Democratic Presidential hopeful: Mark Warner, who enacted the biggest tax increase in Virginia's history.


What about the governors who have been around for a while? One of Messrs. Moore and Slivinski's most interesting findings is that the longer the Republicans have been in office, the more inclined they are to succumb to a tax-and-spend mentality.


The rankings cover all of a governor's time in office. George Pataki's B would drop to a C without his first term, when he slashed New York taxes. He has since increased spending so much that a huge tax increase passed over his veto. If Bill Owens were judged just by his recent attempts to alter Colorado's tax limitation law, he would not be considered A material. Florida's Jeb Bush, who earned an A two years ago, has slipped to a B after endorsing more bloated budgets.


Finally, we'll note the bipartisan nature of Cato's F students: Republican Bob Taft of Ohio and Democrat Edward Rendell of Pennsylvania.

My guy got an F (Boob Taft). The grading scale must be skewed if Pataki is getting a B.

Sure, i expected that, but i'm still dissapointed to see that an established newspaper like that put his energy on trying to make people believe Governator is good. I mean, you saw the laws he made for California? It's just nothing and everything...

People from California, you have to know this: you can't have sex with something or someone dead...The Governator said it!

Yeah, he deserves respect...Pfft...

Rick Perry doesn't do jack shit in Texas and Jeb Bush has destroyed Folrida's economy. When I visit Florida on vacations I see less and less stores on the malls, the unemploymen rate increasing and Jeb and his wife posing for cameras making everyone believe that Florida is doing good. Fuck you Perry and Bush (Jeb)

I guess it's a family affair... Bush(George) has been re-elected cause of the hurricane...All he had to do was to give the money Florida needed quickly and wisely. Jeb has been re-elected for being George's brother...But you're right: a smile to the cameras can change everything.

You better believe I agree with that. Taft hasn't done jack shit to bring business back to the state. There are more jobs now then there was a year ago which is good, however most of those jobs seem to want to pay even less then what I make now which is fucking pathetic.

A little recommendation to anyone here thinking of getting into the tech field...don't.
