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."
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!
