large pile of debt. Illinois posts an 8.7 percentunemployment rate, which is well above the nationalaverage. In California, the bastion of liberal ideology,Sacramento is swimming in debt that is approaching the$16 billion mark, on the heels of a credit downgrade. Lib-eral ideology of the President clearly fails at all levels of government. States The ideology of the President in stepwith is failing at all levels of government, not just at thefederal level where he is to blame.On the other hand, states like Ohio and Wisconsin havedone a tremendous job cutting the toxic fat fromexcessive government spending and programs.

Leave it to acommunity organizer to run the country into an economicabyss. The U.S. economy is stagnant, with highunemployment, deficits, and debts as far as the eye cansee, and yet President Obama is still relying on the sameold stale liberal policies and selling his fallacy of recovery.One way to showcase how Obamanomics has failedAmerican citizens is by examining the economiclandscapes of individual states that have adopted differingstrategies for financial recovery.
