Local Misery Indices Are Out: No Suprises Here!

And, what do you know! The top 20 most miserable cities in America reside in Democrat controlled counties. The Misery Index was introduced by Economist, Robert Barro in the 1970s. It basically measures unemployment rates and inflation rates. It can be measured on a national level or local level. Forbes has put together the latest for us. I’m sure glad the democrats are for the little guy. These places sure could use them right now!
