Washington's Movin' on up

If "movin' on up" means joining the ranks of Oregon, Wyoming (whose population is smaller than Seattle's), and ten states whose infant mortality rates rank between Croatia's and Latvia's.

The beige states in the picture above have no general assistance-unemployable programs--i.e. programs that provide disability benefits to unemployable and otherwise benefit-ineligible adults.

As part of her "cut off the face to spite the face" budget (talking points here), Christine Gregoire has proposed cutting the state's GA-U program altogether.

If Mississippi, West Virginia, and the state that gave us Dick Cheney aren't doing it, why should we?
