CNBC released the results of its America’s Top States for Business study and to call the list laughable may be an understatement.
As you might expect, at least for those paying attention, the 10 worst states listed are red states. These states also represent some of the top destinations in America for relocations, with Texas being dead last, despite being overrun from all sides with new residents — legal and illegal. Naturally, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis running for president, the Sunshine State was included in the ten, but with Florida having the best economy in the country CNBC listed the state as the best of the worst.
In sharing the results, social media user John Pompliano questioned the “specific narrative” being pushed by the network:
10 worst states to live and work in for 2023, per CNBC.
T-4. South Carolina
The fact that these are all red states tells me there is a specific narrative they are trying to…

A key stipulation in the survey essentially rendered the results as little more than “garbage,” as one social media user aptly noted: “The study measures quality of life issues including crime, health care, childcare and health care, as well as inclusive policies on discrimination and reproductive rights.”
Of course, any self-respecting red state would question itself if it didn’t bring up the rear when it comes to woke policies of “inclusion” and reproductive rights, i.e. killing babies.

Another social media user nailed it when he wrote, “They based a study on a premise of left wing metrics. Then used that to create a study to confirm the false premise. They can’t help themselves at this point they’re literally lying about everything now.”
CNBC justified the social justice angle employed to skew the results in a desired manner when it reported, “Casting the widest possible net for workers means not turning anyone away. So we consider inclusiveness in state laws by measuring protections against discrimination, as well as voting rights.”
Here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the story, as seen on Twitter:
Or maybe it’s a worthless list that shows the biases of those who made it.

Yes, absolutely. Do not move to Texas. Go to California. I hear its paradise.

Shocking that a liberal mouthpiece like CNBC would denigrate the state of Florida.

Yes, please stop moving to Florida. Florida is closed!
