I need some help from the wise people that live here. Splain this to me. If I take money from the gov't to help me pay my bills or try to make my situation in life better with monies given to me that I didn't earn. I mean work hard and pay my taxes but the taxes don't quite cover my expenses, well actually my elected representatives taxes don't cover their expenditures. So they ask the federal gov't to give their state some money for help making the payments they cant quite cover. Are you confused yet. Because typically these legislatures are always complaining about welfare recipients, stealing money from their constituents for being lazy, no good, mooches. Then they brag about how good they are to their state citizens for bringing more money to the state then the citizens pay in taxes, what's that called; bringing home the bacon. PORK. It would be interesting to know whose the best at it, red or blue. For a fact, California and New York Pay in more than they recieve, and subsidize a state like Kentucky, that doesn't. Mitch, and Rand are good at recieving welfare checks for their state.
