Virginia Wins No. 1 Top-State-for-Business Ranking

Congratulations are due the Northam administration. For the second straight year, Virginia ranks No. 1 in CNBC’s list of the top states for business. There are many best-business rankings, but CNBC’s is the most prestigious. Hopefully, the Old Dominion will see increased interest from corporate investors as a result.

Some will say that the No. 1 ranking vindicates the spending and regulatory policies of the Northam administration and Democratic-dominated General Assembly, which we have described as anti-business on this blog. I disagree. Bacon’s Rebellion will explain why shortly.

But I don’t want that discussion to cloud the good news. Let’s spend a moment basking in the PR bonanza.

    Sure didn’t help that Rolls-Royce plant from going tits-up last summer, after the state gave them millions in tax incentives….

    Not bad for “King Blackface Northam” and his tax increase-happy minions, eh? Oh wait, CNBC, that’s another one of those MSM lefties, right?

      It’s hilarious to watch so many “conservatives” attack Northam on being a socialist blah blah blah…this speaks for itself.

          Yes, which is considerably more authoritative than the peanut gallery shouting “Northam is a Marxist!”
