    That's a serious question.  Why should Blue states "spread the wealth" to Red States?  Without significant input into how the money is spent?

      I want people to have a good education and healthcare. My congressman and both my senators voted for the ACA which will help far more folks in the red states than in NJ. However, it pisses the hell out of me when I see the older, white, tea partying southerners with signs like "keep the government out of my Medicare."

      significant input into how it's spent, since we're only talking about federal taxation and spending here.
