Why is that red states governed by red politicians with red philosophy of low tax and no infrasctructure the poorest in the country while the opposite is true for tax the rich and invest in infrastructure democratic party? Red states take 1 dollar from tax and give back few cents as tax. The blue states do the opposite; takes a few cents from tax and give back a full dollar as tax. So blue states cover for red states. Red states are the true moochers; not inner city blacks or illegal immegrants-altough both these groups do mooch. The biggest moochers are poor whites spread across the entire red america -dollar by dollar. So Ann, republicans are the biggest moochers but they pretent to be the tax base. They are not. They take more.
