Which State has ‘Worst Quality of Life’ in the U.S.?

The world is nothing like you thought it was..

Even with all of its advantages, natural resources, business and trade routes through the Pacific, California has worked hard to screw itself up.

This effort might just be working too, according to a recent U.S. state ranking.


In a U.S. News study, California came in dead last among all of the U.S. states in terms of “quality of life.”

Apparently, this has to do with the types of interactions Californians have daily, along with the high cost of living.

“In addition to a healthy environment, a person’s quality of life is largely a result of their interactions with those around them,” writes U.S. News.  “Studies show that when people feel socially supported, they experience greater happiness, as well as physical and mental health.”

California falls below New Jersey and Indiana in the “quality of Life” category. But overall, the state lands at No. 32.

In the other categories of education, opportunity, infrastructure, crime & corrections, and fiscal stability, the state is ranked in the lower half of all the states.

In the economy category, the state lands at No. 4, but this doesn’t mean everyone is prosperous.

California is the home of Silicon Valley, an area known for its “prosperity paradox.”

“At one end are California’s wealthy and super-wealthy — the 76,000 millionaires and billionaires who call Santa Clara and San Mateo counties home. At the other end are the thousands of people who struggle to feed their families and pay their bills each month. Nearly 30% of Silicon Valley’s residents rely on public or private assistance,” writes Business Insider.

The success of a segment of population in California leads to extremely high living costs. According to a 2017 Harvard University report, one-third of renters living in LA spend at least half of their income on housing.

55,000 people can’t even afford a home. Homelessness in LA has spiked by 75 percent in the last six years, according to the LA Times.

As of right now, California has a balanced budget. However, the Standard & Poor’s rating agency predicts that this won’t last.

“California’s finances are roaring back,” said the agency’s report. “History would suggest, however, that any fiscal renaissance will be temporary.”

“If the stock market shifts from gains to losses, Standard & Poor’s said the budget could be negatively impacted in a major way because about half of the state’s revenue comes from the wealthiest 1% in California,” writes Fox News.

    One down, fifty-one more to go, that is the Communist Party USA’s mission; of course, as this article clearly points out that the politburo live in another world far removed from the SH!T-HOLE they have intentionally created for the serfs! Those useful suicidal useful idiots that keep these reprobates in POWER will regret their allegiance when it is too late and they will have to accept their enslaved state, the dumb-(m)asses!

    I am skeptical of the interpretation of facts in this article. It is hard for me to believe that the mass of poor Southern states have a better quality of life than CA. I definitely would rather live in CA than Alabama, especially if I were African American. Does quality of life have anything to do with racial equality? And, why on earth are more people moving to CA from the other states than the other way around?

      You obviously have never lived in Alabama as a “black person”. Your ignorant, stereo, uninformed bias is showing.

    I lived in Monterey, CA back in 1971 & 1972. Beautiful area, I loved the weather, cool on the coast and Warm back in the valley. However, I could see the writing on the wall for the government and finances. I knew that 1. Costs of living would only sky-rocket, and 2. The liberal government would trash the state. I was right. You couldn’t pay me enough to live there (either figuratively or literally). Enjoyed it then, would not go back.

    LA is a Shit Hole and most people have 2 or 3 jobs just to pay the rent, everything is way too expensive, salaries are low, and the majority cannot afford to buy their own homes

    I simply lack the ability to muster any measure of pity or “compassion” for the hundreds of thousands of souls who made the conscious decision to make CA their home. That state has long been famous as the largest loony-bin on the planet and has been on a long downhill slide for decades. Yet these brain dead idiotic morons continue to elect people like Swartzenegger, “Moonbeam” Brown, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein to rule over them. And as for the latter, the Dems there say she isn’t “progressive” (socialist) enough for them! The last decent thing to come out of CA was Ronald Reagan, and much as I love and admire him, he was far from perfect. I say if these batshit crazy draggers of the government tit are suffering so much, they should more carefully consider who they place in power to keep them poor and down-trodden. I say their situation is good enough for them. You get what you pay for, and in this case, who you vote for. Screw ’em.

    California • Highest combined Federal and State Income tax rates in the nation • Second Highest Capital Gains Rates in the World Contingency Plan A properly structured “Trust” accumulates ordinary income & capital gain will not be subject to California state income tax until “distributions” are actually made to the trust”s “beneficiaries”. At that point only the “distributed amount” is subject to California state income tax and only if “the beneficiary” is a California resident when the distribution is made. Distributions to a beneficiary who has settled outside of California are free of California’s state income tax (but may be taxable in the beneficiary”s resident state). Neighboring State & Tax Haven “Nevada” doesn’t have a state income tax. So…. best custom essay

    I detect some HRC Demwit supporters in this thread. Southern states are infinitely better than NY or CA. Any red state is better. And there is no such thing as “equality” much LESS racial equality. Negroes are mostly criminals and have been raised since they were old enough to steal a Kool from their mammy to hate all white people for no reason whatsoever. Aw…someone “called you a name, ‘Groid?” The same name your homies call each other? Hard Cheese! Man up, you Africoon-American’t crybabies.

    Yeah all the idealism and “Social Justice” our leftist socialist leaders brain wash citizens in believing is just a ruse for pushing for higher taxes, that Doesn’t funnel down to the most needed. The best scenario has always been create industries so the average person can get up every morning, pay their way and provide for their family. But in CA. the land of I.O.U for state tax refunds these politicians just pile on the shit to citizens to be the support system with the likes of sanctuary cities, endless homeless and industry that’s over burdened by taxation verse partnering to create employment and self help processes. And lets not forget people the ACA is subsidizes through taxes to states like CA. Figures Nancy Pelozi is a democrat from CA. former leader of the house and sponsored the plan, passing it in the middle of night. Then she stated will just pass and worry whats in it later..Democrats have proven tax and spend doesn’t work and this state proves the poverty of laziness and wealth redistribution without personal responsibility of citizens receiving is generational damming. What starts in CA usually slithers it s way across the US. Cut off the head of the snake is my thought like the sleazy power players in Hollywood.
