    We know that Obama's 1st budget got shot down in the Senate with no votes at all for it. He has not put forth another one, nor has the dems inthe House or the Senate to compare with the House budget. They talk about reducing spending, how are they planning to do that? What do they think can be cut? And what kind of leadership doesn't put up an alternative budget? That's lame guys, really lame.

    Basically cuts in our income corporate income, and in defense spending. Everything else is untouchable, and even should be increased.

    Cut tax breaks to billionaires for one.

    Second, stop taking money from Blue States and giving it to Red States. It's not our fault that Republicans, Rednecks and Conservatives are the laziest people on earth and don't know anything about money. It's not our fault and I'm sick and tired of seeing my tax money fund those people who keep threatening to secede. Let them. Good riddance.

    Do you have any clue why the dominant states happen to be in the South?

    One has to take the numbers with a grain of salt. States with more military bases will have more federal spending, as well as states with more federal land. Most of the higher ranked states have more of either one or the other, therefore higher spending.

    A more accurate table would be one of federal grants/program spending per state per $ of taxes paid.

    Cutting spending, to Demo-Turds, is to not increase it as much as last year.

    How about we do not pay to repair any levees that fail this year. No more welfare for properties in places which are uninhabitable w/o my financial aid.

    This will end the aid cycle as well as saving us directly. Also it will increase demand for newer properties built in the modern age out of the floodplain
