    While a short list: OR, WA, NM,MN and PA ; there are some Blue states that seem unlikely to lose their tax base rapidly nor do they have severe unfunded liabilities. So what are they doing right that other Blue states don't?

    What makes one count as a blue state?

    Having predominately democratic governors over the last 100 years?

    Which ones are which? All except PA are low population states, some have a lot of mineral wealth, some have high taxes to cover high spending, and some have lower 'minority' populations to pay for than others.
