<quoted text>Because CA is bigger than KY, the way for you to understand this is to look at the per capita. That means wow much each person pays in and gets back (BY STATE) and you than may realize that CA has more people than KY.

Think about that ... CA has more people.
don't really matter how many people. What matters is cold hard cash. CA uses $24 billion a year and KY uses $600 million. Not even close. So CA is a bigger leach on the American people. How about CA takes care of its welfare and KY take care of its own?

The country needs a new approach on taxes. Democrats want higher taxes, Republicans want lower taxes. So let's increase taxes on all Democrats by 10%, Lower taxes on all Republicans 10% and leave taxes on the rest alone. Everyone has what they asked for.

How about the per capita numbers?
Or how about the dollars spent per recipient?
I think that would be a better view.
Oh it is even worse if you do it per capita. Kentucky receives $1.75 in federal funding for every dollar they pay in federal taxes. They receive $2.45 per capita for each dollar that they pay in federal taxes.

and CA gets $24 billion a year while KY gets $600k. Not even close. CA cost the USA a great deal of money. But I like your idea about cutting the federal gov out altogether. CA keeps its money and KY keeps its money. They take care of their problems and we will take care of ours. Great idea. I like it. I also think that NY shouldn't put their hands out over this hurricane.
