Nor will it show how Southern and Mid Western States receive more financial aid and assistance than their residents contribute via income tax paid to the treasury.
A major part of the problem is the low wages earned by residents in Republican voting States, most every State in the south is a dependent state with no economic viability. There are only 3 States with a per capita median income equal to the national medial.
The next problem is there is no manufacturing base in the South and hasn't been since before the Civil War period.
We very much need to focus on the States in order to know exactly where the drainage is in America, and which State makes financial contributions.
The numbers show that the Southern and Midwestern States are the states and regions that inspired the war on poverty and to this day are still economic wastelands unable to finance themselves without taking funding from the more populated and wealthy Eastern Seaboard and West Coast tax payers. And that is in spite of the Government relocating military bases in those regions to boost their economies and provide employment to the citizens in those States and Regions.
I have a link that shows which party demographic group uses more welfare if you care to look at it. Of course, it's nationwide and not state by state.
Taxes are not the problem with our country even though only 53% or our population actually pays federal income tax. The real problem is spending. It's like my father always told me since young on. Anybody can make money. An idiot can make money. The real secret to success is not spending the money you earn.
That being said, what we need to do is forget about what state gets what, and zoom in on what areas of the state gets what. I live in Cleveland; Cleveland, which has not only been under Democrat leadership for well over two decades, but was voted the poorest city twice in three years. We are not alone. Many cities with Democrat leadership are in the same predicament be it Chicago, Detroit or even the many cities across the state of California. In Cleveland, we've even led the country in depopulation for a few years.
Yet, our state is run by Republicans. We have a Republican legislature and a Republican governor. Our state has been successful in employment in spite of our poorest Democrat run cities such as Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown, Cincinnati and so on. Currently, we are a Republican state that has many Democrat cities where most of our population resides.
