This is fairly kneejerk predisposition-confirmation out of me here, but.... it does seem like red states receive, generally, more wealth than blue states.
Isn't complaining about a state receiving more in federal spending than they pay in federal taxes a bit like complaining that the single mother down the street gets more in welfare payments than she pays in taxes?
As a liberal Texan, I would be grateful if my Metafilter pals would keep in mind that most "red states" are 45% blue or more , and vice-versa.
