Jun 13, 2011 Racism against black people may be the strongest form of racism in China.
Obama wants to get us more into debt with China.
The GOP doesn't.

Here, truly, is our FEDERAL WASTE, and these outsized welfare disbursements must be stopped FIRST.
NOTE: Rep paul Ryan's state, WISCONSIN, is not on this list, nbecause they send in $$$#.2 BILLION DOLLARS more than they get back.
So, the good people in Wisconsin are supporting themselves; and also every citizen of the welfare states of Texas and Wyoming.
Texans, Wyominks, Thank your daddies in Wisc.
They keep you out of the gutter.

During President Obamas historic Inaugural speech he called out Paul Ryans disgustingly hateful comment about Taker and the smart among us fully understand that the right tries every day to divide the nation but We the People believe in unity, that is why we re-elected President Obama.
Paul Ryan lost, and now he is bitter just like the rest of the loser tea-baggers who wasted their vote on that loser ticket.

Wrong again, loser !

I noticed the liberal haven state of California is not on the list either. And Louisiana with their Conservative juggernaught Bobby Jindal is way on the top.
Who woulda thunk it.

That's the way it's always been. Here's a clue why: have you ever known a wingnut teaparty bad-mouther of social security who declined his monthly checks?

You're an absolute liar, billy boy.
Texas gets back .94 cents of every dollar they put in. The total put in by Texas will lead the nation projected by 2014, moron.
Pennsylvania, Maine, Ohio all get over $1.oo
Proof you're another fabricating liberal propagandist.
BTB....Texas also leads the nation in private sector job production, green energy production and usuage, exports and will soon lead in technology initiatives. Get out of the liberal sewer and read now and then, boy.

Paul Ryan won re-election is his congressional district. We the People voted for the republican house. Nobama barely won the Whitehouse back with the "takers" all voting for him. Hilarious, you're all expecting something out of that!

'Ol billy boy and his misleading democrat propganda...supported by the BS of a phoney Marine. LMAO
Virginia receives more than its share of federal dollars but billy neglects to mention that Northern VA is the home of most of the federal government and SE VA is home to the largest Naval Base in the world along with a veritable host of other assorted and sundry military installations. Its not like the Feds are pumping in billions of tax dollars to repair 95 and 64 and their related infrastructures.
