Lower Taxes! And keep sending our bailout checks!

I may not be Jewish, but in a word.... Oy!

New Jersey gets 57 cents in federal spending for every dollar of taxes.

Alaska get $1.89 for every tax dollar.

The biggest benefactors?

1. New Mexico
2. Alaska
3. Mississippi
4. West Virginia
5. North Dakota
6. Alabama
7. Montana
8. Virginia

In a word, red.

The biggest losers?

1. New Jersey
2. New Hampshire
3. Connecticut
4. Minnesota
5. Nevada
6. Illinois
7. Massachusetts
8. California

Blue, no? Sheesh.

That should eliminate any questions on why southern crackers (no, I'm not black either) are voting on morals rather than the economy.
