It’s been another bad week for the the Palmetto State in the national rankings.  Days after Forbes declared South Carolina one of eleven “death spiral” states (given its high ratio of dependents-to-income earners), another national publication is weighing in on our ineffective government.

According to 24/7 Wall Street (no relation to 21 Jump Street), South Carolina is the eighth-worst run state in America.

We know what you’re thinking … there are seven states that are run worse than this one?

Not possible … especially in light of the ongoing disaster over at the S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR) – which coughed up 3.8 Social Security numbers, 3.3 million bank account numbers, tax info for more than 650,000 businesses and nearly 400,000 credit and debit card numbers to hackers earlier this year.

Oh well … it’s another “great day in South Carolina,” people.
