    I think Jindal, Palin, and Sanford will have to go on bended knee to apologize to Boss Limbaugh now. :(

    The states that voted for John McCain in 2008 by and large get way more money in federal outlays than they pay in taxes.

    The Tax Foundation broke down the fiscal 2005 numbers and ranked the states based on federal outlays vs. how much tax money was sent to Washington.

    While New Mexico, a blue state in 2008, ranked first, the states that finished 2-9 are all states that voted for John McCain: Mississippi, Alaska, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, South Dakota, and Kentucky.

    GOP fights against stimulus, yet Red States get way more federal money than Blue States. Ironic or Hypocritical? | BuzzFlash.org

    So why do we listen to republicans, neo cons, right wingers, supposed conservatives?

    Isn't this enough proof that they are full of shit?

    Please explain if I am off base here.

    Wow, that's just sad. The Federal Government is yet again 'strong-arming' the States to do what they tell them. This Federal 'power-grab' should concern every freedom-loving American. My how far we've fallen since this country was formed not so many years ago.

    Read my last post. It exposes your post as the bullshit that it is. The red states take more $ from the Fed than they give.

    Who twisted their arms to take more than they give?

    Do they want to start giving more than they take?

    Us Blue states carry your sorry asses.

    And who forced the GOP in 2004-2006 to break pork barrel/earmark records?

    You mean like when the Supreme Court told Florida to stop the recount and give Bush the election?

    You right wingers always talk shit about letting states decide, until you don't like their decisions.
