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.

YES. . . MA could become a magnet for attracting business and excape her "TAXachusetts" label if her elected LeaKers chose to abandon that pesky ObamaCare and protected her citizens from ID Theft by holding onto the 97% Health Care coverage she enjoyed without intrusion of Medical and Financial Documents!
