That's not the point. The point is you are equating Dem vs Repub states as the reason why there is a difference on who gets help. Political policies have very little to nothing to do with it. It has to do with demographics, state resources and weather. That's the majority of it.California retired people are NOT moving to Alabama and Georgia, two of the worst welfare states in the nation. The worst is Louisiana. People are NOT moving from the west or the north to those three locations. You seem to want to remove them from the equation. They ARE the equation.One of the main reasons is California having people sell their house in retirement and relocate somewhere where housing is less expensive. Thus they collect SSI and Medicare/Medicaid in another state, yet they paid into the system when they worked in California. The average age of a Californian is 51 while it is 53 in Mississippi. The growth of Pheonix to the 5th largest city in the nation is due to this phenomenon. So you casting about with this type of information is disingenuous. There is a lot of other things that goes into why. You haven't even touched upon one of them.So far, it hasn't worked in Republican run states. In fact, the Dem Run States send money to the Republican run states to pay for their welfare. When is reality going to set in to you. There is only one rich Republican run state and that is Texas and yet, it's still on of the highest welfare states in the nation. The others are dirt poor and require the Blue States to send them money to pay their bills. So much for fiscal conservatism.Don't fret over it...And Welfare is run by the State which are Republican. You just can't stand it that the mismanagement is done primarily by Republicans. Now take a look at just a state like Alabama that has a dominant Republican population. Yet it has a higher per capita of people on Welfare than even California or NY does.Gee, maybe the red states should ban Democrats from living there...Funny you should mention Welfare. There are more party of the rump voters on welfare than any other one group. The poorest states with the highest per capita number of welfare recipients are all deep red states. You have a backward firing gun on your hands.Leave it to the Daily Kook to leave out the fact that the Democrats can limit their exposure by having their welfare and food stamps direct deposited to their EBT cards....
The House on July 11 passed a farm bill stripped of funding for food stamps. A Pew Research survey last year found about one-in-five (22%) of Democrats say they had received food stamps compared with 10% of Republicans.www.pewresearch.org

Paul Krugman is in puzzlement, having observed that Red States get more welfare funding, while Republican voters oppose the welfare state. He portrays Republicans as “Moochers” who are either hypocritical or too stupid to know their own best interest. But as we know, states do not vote...wallstreetpit.com

Hardly surprising, we see that in a two-party split, 60-80% of welfare recipients are Democrats, while full time Workers are evenly divided between parties.
The Democrats have gotten Liberal judges to block a lot of the "welfare to work" programs, but after Trump has 4 more years of appointing federal judges (and stacking the SCOTUS), I'm sure the programs will be instituted....
Then we can make the worthless Democrats get JOBS!!!
One other point - Correlation does not imply causation for the case of Dem vs Repub states. States with large cities and HUGE populations have a liberal bent. This also skews the data.
So tired of this type of disinformation - this is typical of "talking points" that people throw out that have no basis and no real study done. Find me a study that isn't skewed and proves out your theory of "Dem" state vs "Repub" state. It's all bullshit.
You are ignorant. Educate yourself.
