This is true. With the exception of Texas and Alaska which are basically mini petrostates, most red states are on the federal dole, with their budgets infused with blue state tax money. Kind of a different way to think of the term "blue state bailout." https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/#red-vs-blue https://twitter.com/tom_winter/status/1253356361439760384
In fact, in terms of the robustness and growth of our relative economies, let alone our cultures, educational outcomes etc, Red America and Blue America are in fundamental ways two different countries living under one roof: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/magazine/wp/2018/11/29/feature/the-key-to-understanding-americas-red-blue-split-isnt-ideology-or-culture-its-economics/
So Mitch might want to fall back on the "bailout" talk. Also at some point folks in his America are going to get sick of living in neofeudalism where rich people "eat the poor"; and he may find out in November how Trumpy Matt Bevin felt last year. http://local12.com/news/local/ky-secretary-of-state-andy-beshear-wins-kentucky-gubernatorial-race
Do better, @senatemajldr
. You sucked in hundreds of millions of dollars from a Russian oligarch after pushing to lift sanctions, earning the sobriquet "Moscow Mitch." Did you use any of that money to help your state? https://www.wkyufm.org/post/kentucky-second-most-dependent-state-federal-money#stream/0
The federal government exists for times like this: to help those who are struggling in EVERY state. And we know y'all have the money, @senatemajldr
, because you keep shoveling it into the fat pockets of megacorporations and the banks. Everyone saw that. So, do better. Thanks!
