  •  Which states are the "takers" ... red states ... (9+ / 0-)
    Many GOP-leaning states get more in federal funding than they contribute in federal taxes.

    That's the point made by a graphic that’s circulating on the Internet, titled "Red State Socialism." A reader recently pointed us to it and asked us to check it out. The chart suggests that Republicans are hypocritical for bashing the federal government and federal spending, when Republican-leaning states are reaping the lion’s share of federal dollars.

    I say "takers" because I don't believe there really is such a thing as a "taker" ... it's just a GOP propaganda point.

      They know what they're doing.  They are the moochers.  They just think they're clever because they've conned someone else into supporting their lifestyle.  If that isn't the definition of a shiftless moocher, I don't know what is.
