Mass., NY could lose more seats in Congress

Massachusetts is facing the loss of one House seat and New York will lose at least one and possibly two according to estimates based upon the latest census results.

"These states are still holding onto memories of an earlier era when the Northeast was a dominant power in politics," said Julian Zelizer, a congressional historian at Princeton University. "The Sun Belt is where the action is now."

My Two Cents ...

People aren't only leaving Massachusetts and New York because of the weather. Tax rates have a lot to do with it, too. Yet, both legislatures can't seem to figure it out, with 2011 deficits predicted to grow exponentially versus prior years. What a mess!
