Waa, waa, waaa...

Spin it any way you want, the fact remains that the top welfare states are predominantly RED. Yes, there's some blue in there. But the majority of the money goes to the reds. And if you expand it further, the top recipients of federal dollars (beyond just welfare, but including farm subsidies (which is just another form of welfare), defense spending, NASA spending, etc) are also RED.


In liblandia facts are spin.

And of course, since those receiving the most welfare tend to RED, it follows those providing the funds tend to be BLUE.

It's not rocket science.

I find it sadly ironic that the states voting RED because they want government spending cut are the same states that receive most of that spending.


LOL @ that. Sounds to me that it's more of a money where the mouth is issue. But believe what you want.
