Sorry, "but I want more" is reserved for pelosi....and her bay area welfare kings and queens who vote for her. Also her pork projects that make her husband richer.

Maybe if you grew a brain and looked around...you'll see none of the GOP congressmen voted for that. LMAO Your parachute is missing the ripcord, ain't it?

But you sit in the middle of red state welfare heaven. California is supporting you, and five of your red-neighbors.

Ms Pelosi was singled out by FOXLIES for demonization, and your following their corporate line shows you to be a typical wooden-head FOXLIES puppet.

Dance, puppet.

LMAO........hilarious!!!

Texas puts as much into the federal coffers as California, pinball. Texas gets much less back what they put in...so where is this welfare thingy coming from??? Your left wing blogger that claims red states get more welfare?? Hilarious..the top 15 welfare states, 13 are blue. google it, genius.

California supporting Texas????????..that's your best one yet, Red Skelton. We're taking businesses OUT of California...it's really amazing the crap you fabricate in a vain attempt to get a point accross that demorats have done anything for the country since 2006 except pile on debt and cost the average Ameican money from their wallets. Rolling on the floor!

Nancy Pelosi is the Democrats' version of Tom DeLay,...~Time.com Insider trading.....using tax dollars for wharf repairs her husband intends to buy from the Navy for pennies on the dollar.

Pelosi is all about, total government control of the means of production with her and her group in POWER. Damn the constitution, full speed ahead...LMAO You really believe she's "for the people" don't you??

Nancy Pelosi is a power hungry greedy queen bee wannbe...she got elected because she pandared to her bay area welfare, old hippy and welfare queen constituients. She has used pork to enrich her husband, she said that a cut in pay for house members would be "beneath her dignity." And you make excuses for that yet criticize someone who made a fortune through private investments.

BTB, Nancy and hubby has money in the cayman islands and Switzerland. But that's different.....ain't it! In 2009, Pelosi saw her net worth explode from $9 million to over $21 million. By the end of 2010 it was at $35 million and still rising.



You're a riot...keep 'em coming.

Austin and the rest of Texas has weathered Obama’s Summer or Recovery (NOT) better than just about anywhere else in the country. And these sound like some pretty decent jobs moving into our fine little city. Thanks, California.

California......147 billiion dollar debt..........

Texas 8 billion dollar surplus......billy boy says California is supporting Texas..

That's funnier than a flash flood in an alka seltzer factory.

I'm so sorry your prayers of economic disaster remain unanswered.
Have you considered a different religion?
Maybe once the GOP rebrands itself and sheds it's "I've got mine, fck you" image, and you regain the White House (2040?) you can return us to the halcyon days of 2008.
Or 1895. Not really sure when the Good 'ol Days were for all y'all.

Federal Government Expenditure,
Per Capita Ranges by State: FY 2008 Your own article....Texas is one of the lowest receiving federal funds to what they put in.....well below what they put in. Alaska is the top due to large use of aircraft to get supplies to towns and villages...government supported.
Your own state has several government supported businesses of the same companies that are here in Texas...Lockheed, General Dynamics etc. Does that make you one welfare??? No, they are private businesses that compete for military contracts.

Anyone on welfare in a red state are obama voters. We don't mind people getting help, but require them to eventually get work. Why the hell do you think that of the 180,000 people that Texas took in from Katrina.....1/3 decided to stay here...because they found jobs.
California can't support themselves thesedays...let alone anyone else.

According to your own liberal cnbc...the biggest welfare states are blue....sorry to burst your bubble and your posted vain attempts to say obama's adimistration has done anything constructive. Ain't happening!! LMAO

What in the hell are you talking about?? Is your bong dirty again??

No one is praying for an economic disasteer, Agantha Christie...you fiction is amusing to say the least. We would like to see the senate and exec branch focus on the economy and defense rather than gays and guns. Thanks.....

Pelosi and crew got theirs, millions worth of pork and other "projects!" It's amazing how demorats get rich while in office....a republican gets rich before he runs for office and you lefties pop a zit!! LMAO Your so gullible.

Oh those altruistic Republicans!
You're downwind from the refinery again aren't you?
They are focused on defense, tiger!
First a missle defense system that the Air Force didn't want or need
Now a tank program that no one wants that's getting full funding!

Before, you were wrong, but made sense.

Now you make no sense at all.

Yes, Alaske takes even more Federal welfare, per capita, than Texas, so what?

The money for the 'private businesses' is poured down your welfare state hole.
Same thing happening this week with Ohio & the Abrams Tanks.
Doesn't mean it is not welfare, just because both parties hose it on you.

Welfare is welfare, and just about all the red states are on the teat.

Do not lie.

Not everyone has the smarts to figure this stuff out. But MAYBE if you THINK about it long enough, you'll figure it out.
