So how does Massachusetts stack up financially with the way the rest of the states in the country are run? 

According to 24-7-Wall Street, Massachusetts ranks 19th in the nation in terms of financial health, standard of living and government services.  The state also has the highest debt per-person at more than 11-thousand dollars, due mainly to social spending programs.

The good news – just four-point-three percent of state residents are without health insurance, the lowest in the nation.  North Dakota was ranked as the best-run state, while California came in dead last for the second year in a row.
