The house has sent up 7 budget proposals in the last year, screwball. The senate hasn't passed one in 1030 days and nobama's last budget request was voted down 441-0 in the house and 97-0 in the senate..LMAO

Time to scare the old people again. Give Obama what he wants or no more social security or medicare. There will be enough money to gives federal bureaucrats a raise, but not enough to give soldiers a little. Oh, and all airplanes will be one hour late from now on.

On Meet the Press this morning they said "the WH HAS GOT TO STOP THIS SCARE TACTIC" it is not going to be that bad. They also said the stock market is stable. The host is David Gregory, which is a Dem.

Defense spending, which includes procurement, soldiers' salaries, and base operation, historically has gone to southern and western states while New England has had lower per capita defense spending, said Matt Kane, policy analyst for budget issues for the Northeast Midwest Institute.
As I said, this includes all federal spending, which means a state with few people but a major air base could end up high on the list, since a lot of money gets spent through an air base.
Virginia has a naval base, an air base, and a lot of federal facilities, so it has a high influx of federal spending, even though it is pretty low on the list of federal money sent to states.

We hope that's simple enough for even you to understand...dweeb.

And now for dweeb...the rest of the story. Instead of "federal dollars recived compared to put in) let's discuss the biggest welfare states with people on the dole (Handouts from the government)

Interesting: CNBC published the top 15 states in the Nation that consume the MOST in welfare. 13-of-15 are DEMOCRAT states; they went Blue in 2008.
