Interesting statistics here. How odd that most of those evil rich people live in blue states. And that biggest concentration of wealth is in Washington, DC.

Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmmm.

Did anyone notice that DC had the highest percentage of it's people making $200K+ ... yet the lowest median income for families <u><span style='font-size: 11pt'>NOT</span></u> making $200K+?

How does anyone explain that the most leftist locations in America ... such as NY/Md/DC ... have the highest gaps between rich and poor?

Evidence that those who load the spoon control the minds of the outer party members, to those outer party members own willing detriment?

I report ... you decide.

I guess in DC, you're either part of the ruling class...or one of the downtrodden peons.

I suppose, if you are one of the ones who is getting a big slice of the government pie, you can fully support the outrageous spending that the government is doing.

It makes sense that paupers vote blue -- lots of paupers = lots of blue votes.
Lots of rich = lots of paupers.
It makes sense.

Monday, September 27, 2004

The Tax Foundation has released a fascinating report showing which states benefit from federal tax and spending policies, and which states foot the bill.

US 50 States MapThe report shows that of the 32 states (and the District of Columbia) that are "winners" -- receiving more in federal spending than they pay in federal taxes -- <u>76% are Red States that voted for George Bush in 2000.</u> <span style='font-size: 20pt'>Indeed, 17 of the 20 (85%) states receiving the most federal spending per dollar of federal taxes paid are Red States.</span> Here are the Top 10 states that feed at the federal trough (with Red States highlighted in bold) </div></div>

What has been happening is that the the workers in the Blue states have had their wealth redistributed to the southern Red states. ie the Red states have been on welfare for years.
