Let's see in a couple years how the numbers change. For example LA is high for disaster relief. NJ will be reduced as a giver due to Hurricane Sandy. States like CA,MI, etc who are scrounging for Fed dollars will rise.
I continue to discredit those who claim that it is mooching from states such as NY to pay for mutually beneficial programs such as military bases, Superfund disposal sites, national parks, etc
That pushes the level to absurd.
"That is a strange and baseless analysis." - whatever
