I'm not. Just like the great state of Texas, many Californians are sick of sending $1.60 to DC, and getting back a buck. CA has a vast majority of the technology industry, huge banking system, the second largest oil company in the US, MASSIVE majority of farming production, aerospace, and obviously a wide variety of natural resources. Because of climate, and undesirable geography, many US states are net debtor entities, and are a drain on the resources of the country. And I really don't think a state that is the 8th largest economy on the planet should be governed with the same ideologies as some dimwit who chugs RedBull and goes to the local bowling alley for fun...
Matty, the good news is many Red Staters feel the same way, so lets split this thing up....Go read the latest Steve King screed ....



I guess you have joined the parade of nitwits....keep talking like a moron and you will get 4 more years of Trump....

Boggs, for what its worth:

"Which States Are Givers and Which Are Takers?" Check out the chart on the website.

Quote:
It’s not just that some states are getting way more in return for their federal tax dollars, but the disproportionate amount of federal aid that some states receive allows them to keep their own taxes artificially low. That's the argument WalletHub analysts make in their 2014 Report on Best and Worst States to Be a Taxpayer.

Part of the explanation for why southern states dominate the “most dependent” category is historical. During the many decades in the 20th century when the South was solidly Democratic, its congressional representatives in both the House and the Senate, enjoying great seniority, came to hold leadership positions on powerful committees, which they used to send federal dollars back to their home states in the form of contracts, projects, installations.

Another part of the explanation is easier to discern. The reddest states on that map at the top—Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, New Mexico, Maine—have exceptionally high poverty rates and thus receive disproportionately large shares of federal dollars. Through a variety of social programs, the federal government disburses hundreds of billions of dollars each year to maintain a “safety net” intended to help the neediest among us. Consider, for example, the percentage of each state’s residents who get “food stamps” through the federal government’s SNAP program. This chart tells the story.

Boy you went by the problem really quickly. These red states—right to work states that have essentially killed unions and undefunded education and infrastructure—have exceptionally high poverty rates. After how many years of Republican policies?

The same GOP that continues to try to eliminate or at least gut such safet net programs.
