Here's a GREAT example of how to DISTORT STATISTICS kids! Now, the avg STATE GOVT expenditure is correct, but, what's wrong with this picture? Is EVERYTHING else equal?
No? What's different?
1) Alaska has a lot less people than OH
2) Alaska makes a lot more money from taxing oil.
You must be a reporter the way you present a fact to make it LOOK like you're comparing apples to apples.
You completely missed the point. The exact point I was trying to make was that comparing Ohio and Alaska is NOT "apples-to-apples".

This was in response to the previous post that tried to compare prevailing wage between the two states.
