Blue States in the Red

It's mostly blue states hardest hit. Some flipped at the midterm, some did not. The debt remains. WSJ:
"In Indiana, Mississippi and New Jersey, Republican governors appear to be maintaining their popularity while cutting spending. New Jersey's Chris Christie has cut pensions for future state and local employees, vetoed a tax increase on income over $1 million and cut $1.26 billion in aid to schools and municipalities, which local officials said would drive up property taxes. Among New Jersey residents, 51% approved of the job Mr. Christie was doing, versus 37% who disapproved, a Fairleigh Dickinson University poll found in October."
Unfortunately we still have a unions over all Dem governor and legislature in Illinois.

Chicago is illustrative of Dem one party rule destruction: Politicians helped bring Chicago's public pension funds to the brink of insolvency. Inadequate contributions, underperforming investments have also jeopardized the retirement of tens of thousands of city workers and put taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars

And who is our representative on the national debt commission? Schakowsky’s Lack of Principle. The Illinois Democrat has proposed a deficit-reduction plan that would achieve the opposite of its supposed purposes.

The government knows best, particularly when run by Democrats, in regards to how to spend my money.

Just kidding.
