I'm not suggesting anything. You made a claim and I asked you to show me some data of what they pay vs. what they take. Suggestion doesn't enter into it, just post up the figures and we can see for ourselves which number is higher or lower.Are you suggesting that it’s only the black Republicans that gain from a state being a net-taker vs giver?
So this does include government contracts and federal employee salaries? Do you have a source for this claim? Does your source break down where the money goes?overall federal monies that flow into a state, compared to what that state pays in to the federal coffers,
Now do population density and again, please break down exactly what federal money is counted and where it is going.8:10 top takers are red states. The top giver states show a similar ratio, but with the majority being blue states.
Can you prove they are not? If a large portion of federal money going into a state comes from investing in interstate highways, military bases, federal buildings, national parks, etc. do the states even have a choice of whether this money can be spent in them once those territories' sovereignty is already ceded to the federal government?red states should heed the Republican ideals of self-sufficiency
But of course we're not supposed to ask for the details about actual figures and sums, we're supposed to just take your word for all of this and pull the blue lever so that "your team" will "win".
