The Red State Welfare Clients

Buzzflash has an excellent post about the disparity between right-wing "self reliance" BS and the tendency of Republican states to rake in more federal $ than they pay in taxes. In fact, of the ten states that get the most Federal money in relation to taxes paid, eight voted for McCain last November. Of the ten states that pay the greatest amount of taxes in relation to federal dollars received, all of them voted for Obama. In other words, the Blue States are subsidizing the Red ones!

Isn't it time for the conservatives to get off of welfare?
