Economies in and around the nation's capital are likely to feel the most pain. Federal spending accounts for about a fifth of the economic output of Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, according to the Pew Center on the States. Other areas likely to be hit hard are Hawaii and Alaska, which have a heavy military presence, and states such as New Mexico, Kentucky and Alabama, which have major defense operations or substantial military contracting.
sonu: looks to me that there are a number of red states that will be hit. Apparently sonu doesn't have the ability to totally discern what is going on. By the way, I did 3 hours of volunteer work this morning. Just stopped by to see how many iditiotic posts were made by the lazy cons.
