The Myth of Red State Welfare
http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/the_my...
Of the states with the lowest income, eight had among the 10 highest poverty rates. Mississippi had the highest poverty rate in the country, at 22.6% of residents, compared to the national rate of 15.9%.

The poorest states in the country are almost entirely found in the South, with the exception of New Mexico. The wealthiest states can be found all across the country, including three in New England, four in the Mid-Atlantic, and two outside the contiguous 48 states.

The Myth of Red State Welfare
...
In a way welfare sending and educational spending are the two best examples of Federal control as they manage to coerce the states into spending what they want the states to spend. This is one reason in order to determine the true magnitude of educational spending one must look at total government spending into the area and not simply take the Federal budget number.
...
Basically the Red States are the producers and source of natural resources while most Blue enclaves are the financial office areas. In a very real sense Red states end up transporting the vast amount of their taxable revenue to the Blue enclaves to actually act as middle men and collect the money in sales. Along with, you guessed it, the actual tax money. While I admit this explanation is very simplistic it gets the point across. The real reason Red States receive more total Federal trickle down money is due to the tax and income base which is transferred to the Blue States.

I've seen this right wing propaganda site before. It speaks of elected presidents and the "welfare states" but gives no specific macros as to actual dollar amounts being paid per state / thus, this site is merely a sham to appease you and your base, but nothing more. Let's get to actual numbers from the CBO, which has actual verifiable data, not the nonsense you just put a link to;
http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofil...
If you fail to read the entire report, you will in fact see should you take the time, the highest earners in the nation pay the highest portions of federal taxes. This would include all liberal / Blue States, which in fact do have the highest income ratios than the rest of the country.
Therefore, all red states are in fact excluded / their cost of living is lower, right to work and lower state income taxes mean less capital can be attributed to these states.
Let's look even deeper now - just for fun;

Bottom line - Blue states subsidizing red states is not a myth, but has been a reality for over 50 years.
What kind of folderol are you babbling about?

What metric are you using to define red state vs. blues state?

Get back to me when you can answer that -- with evidence.

The poorest cities are blue. They are blue cities in blue states and blue cities in red states. But they be blue. And that is the real problem. Not the states. But the cities. And they are blue. Not red. But blue. Blue is what they are. In red states, the blue cities are, well blue. Of course there are red areas that are poor. But it is not red state. It is blue city. Now stop the Saul Alinsky crap and go to the source. Blue city. Blue city. Blue city. Blue city.
