Subsidizing the red states
Conservatives love to bitch about how liberals love spending the taxpayers money. They love to talk about self-sufficiency. What they don't say is that those of us in the blue states are subsidizing your sorry slavery-missing, gay hating red state asses.

Here's an interesting graphic that shows how much states receive back from the federal government, compared to the revenues they send to Washington. In the first (what states get back per dollar sent to Washington), the highlighted states are ones that voted for Bush. In the second, the highlighted states are ones that voted for Kerry.

Spending Per Dollar of Federal Taxes Paid:

1. D.C. ($6.17)
2. North Dakota ($2.03)
3. New Mexico ($1.89)
4. Mississippi ($1.84)
5. Alaska ($1.82)
6. West Virginia ($1.74)
7. Montana ($1.64)
8. Alabama ($1.61)
9. South Dakota ($1.59)
10. Arkansas ($1.53)


States Receiving Least in Federal Spending Per Dollar of Federal Taxes Paid:

1. New Jersey ($0.62)
2. Connecticut ($0.64)
3. New Hampshire ($0.68)
4. Nevada ($0.73)
5. Illinois ($0.77)
6. Minnesota ($0.77)
7. Colorado ($0.79)
8. Massachusetts ($0.79)
9. California ($0.81)
10. New York ($0.81)
