California has the worst quality of life

The state performed well in terms of its economy, coming in at No. 4 (hello, high tech boom) but it fared terribly in categories such as citizen opportunity (No. 46) and fiscal stability (No. 43) in addition to the dreaded quality-of-life assessment (that scarring No. 50). Of course, as anyone who has tried to buy a house in the Bay Area knows, fiscal instability is basically our motto at this point.

And the winner of the best state in the nation goes to … wait for it … Iowa. Give it up for the Hawkeye State.

Packing up people?

Follow the others, those moaning and complaining about a state they don’t live in.

Iowa is a shithole, followed by Indiana…Who writes this crap…Iowa has barely grown since 1920 when the population was 2.5m. It is currently 3.1 m which will be the population of Sacramento MSA is a few years…
Iowa is cheap because there is no demand…aka nobody wants to live there.

They give houses away almost free. The building permit would cost more than the purchase price in Cali
