Yeah, right. Like you know what the federal budget receipts and outlays are for each state. You have zero data to back up your claim. Even many of the states you claim are Red have been Blue since 2008. As I stated earlier, the source of the tax analysis that you quoted states that it is likely that today every state gets more than they pay in taxes. As for California, you can Google for other sources of this story, but Calif. got more than the taxes it paid in 2008 and 2009, years you claim you got data on from The Economist. "Commissioned by Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, the study determined that California in 2008 and 2009 received more from the federal government than the state sent to Washington in the form of taxes."
