Why are red states the biggest welfare moochers?

States that voted Democrat in 2016 generally rely less on federal funding than Republican states, according to a study by WalletHub.

The analysis looked at the return on taxes paid to the federal government, the share of federal jobs, and federal funding as a share of state revenue.

Thirteen out of the top 15 states found to be most dependent on the federal government voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Ten out of the 15 least dependent states voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

  • The most dependent state on your map (New Mexico) is a blue state. The least dependent state (Kansas) is a red state.

    Nice Parlor trick, but it's bullshit.

    What happens is people in their early careers live and work in Blue States and pay high taxes and make a lot of money. When they Retire, they move to red states where living is cheaper and taxes are lower.

    So the Social Security is Eqrned in Illinois and New Jersey, but then the checks are mailed to Florida.

    And THAT is how "the blue states earn the money and the red states spend it"

    And now you know something you dodn't know a minute ago,

    And they are the ones with tattoos, expensive guns, monster trucks, loud fat spouses and blame liberals for paying for all their welfare checks.

    Because Red States don't allow drug dealing gang bangers to murder the poor while making millions in profits from not having jobs.
