Massachusetts is the #5 state in the country, according to Politico.

The political website ranked all 50 states based on 14 state rankings from sources like the Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FBI, and other factors including high school graduation rates, per capita income, crime rates and life expectancy. The website admits that its approach is not scientific.

New Hampshire came out on top, followed by Minnesota, Vermont, Utah and Massachusetts.

How come so many are moving out of MA?! Next will be NY, taxes are killing! Duval and Cuomo are to blame!

Ma is one of the best States, its no longer Taxachessetts either, its something like 19th on the list of most taxes. Its what you get for what you pay that counts---take a ride down south and out West, and see how fortunate we truly are here in MA., & the whole North east Actually. Perhaps we should take NY, PA, and NJ form our own country--and tell the rest of the States to take a hike, they'd be a third world country in two weeks, with a new revolution every month.
