Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)…
From The Daily Caller, “VICTOR DAVIS HANSON TELLS TUCKER WHY CALIFORNIA IS ‘AMERICA’S FIRST THIRD-WORLD STATE’.”
Responding to host Tucker Carlson’s question about why he considers California a “Third World state,” Hanson pointed to “symptoms” we typically “associate with failed states” such as high taxes, poor schools, a super-rich class, and a significant percentage of its people below the poverty line.
“We have the most billionaires of any state in nation and then we have the largest underclass,” he said, blaming in part the overturning of the “very popular” Proposition 187, which would have denied non-emergency healthcare to illegal immigrants.
“That was unfortunately part of a perfect storm,” said Hanson, describing the millions of people who chose to move elsewhere over the next two decades.
