This is because they have artificially raised the prices of everything due to their high taxes and massive socialism policies. The real privileged are those who benefit from it.

Ontario is the poster boy for waste and the outcome some of your states will realize over time if you don't return to free market principles and accountable government/unions. There are hundreds of reasons that Big Government always fails, here is but a few.

- Free money from government enters the system, a few operate government officials and unions use the money as if their own (police, firemen, construction, education unions etc.). Few asks questions as they give their annual need for money and politicians obediently nod their heads to keep votes.

- Cronys lobby for cash, donors and loyalists want their just rewards for helping politicians get elected. It's all "hush hush", since police don't want to get involved as they don't want to bite the hand that feeds them and over funds them.

- Anything that is built with taxpayer money results in over spending and overruns in costs with no one held accountable or sent to prison ("where did the billion dollars go"?).

- Excessive taxes are needed to try and maintain social safety nets (SALT will artificially prop up some home owners via federal taxes).

- The average workers can't afford prices of big, government cash influx and affordable housing becomes scarce, driving up the prices of posh neighbourhoods and pushing others out of what used to be good Middle Class areas. They have less disposable income and can't support the local economy.

- Honest, hard working people leave, understanding the futility of trying to chase their tails to keep a roof over their heads and food in their stomach due to inflation. The super wealthy remain as they have the assets and own the best properties which are rising in value due to constant artificial injections of cash for other upper middle class union employees..

- The poorest also remain due to lack of options and work elsewhere, they are thus "managed" by the wealthy and further inefficient government subsidies are applied from the shrinking Middle Class and existing wealthy all to ensure the system doesn't collapse.

In key respects, many blue states are actually doing worse than red states. It is in the blue states where affordable housing is often hardest to find, there are some of the most acute disparities in education funding and economic inequality is increasing most quickly. Opinion | Blue States, You’re the Problem
ITs going to take more than one of these before libs start doing some house cleaning in earnest and restore some sanity to their party.
So, which policies? You forgot to say. Did you run out of time?

So the rules of supply and demand don’t apply in the blue states?

By extension? No democrats are the problem, that's why the blue states are the problem because democrats are running them, right into the ground.

It's absolutely democrat policies. From Biden, all of his federal apointees right down to mayor's and governors of like Chicago and California.

Prove it.

Just "because I said so" doesn't prove anything or show anything. It's not a conversation piece or even is dialogue.

If you want to argue then bring something worth saying or concrete with you. If you just want to be a immature contrarian you shouldn't even bother.

The modern democrat party is the political party of willful national suicide. How every last sentient American cannot see that is far above my paygrade to explain. Abortion? Suicide of the human race. Faggotry? Suicide of the human race. Transgenderism? Suicide of the human race. Poking the Russian Bear? National suicide. Kindling and igniting racial conflicts? National suicide. Open borders? National suicide. Historical revisionism? National suicide. Stoking hatred against our Founding Fathers? National suicide. And on and on and on and on . . .

It's time for blue states to start pulling their weight.

Pulling their weight? Most of the libtards in blue states are so fat they can hardly get out of the chair.
