    Out of the top to giver state (state that give money to the US than receive) 8 out of 10 are Blue states, the bottom ten taker state are ALL Red states. I wonder who need more help Blues states or Red states.

    Looks like a dose of good medicine.

    Republicans are rebranding their message: Trickle down is now being replaced by “Alms for the poor”.

    The US has far more people than jobs, so it needs a strict ‘No work, no food’ policy. In about two months, the population will be reduced by at least 25% (probably more like 40%) and unemployment will be largely eliminated.


    With luck, this policy will finally solve the most difficult and pernicious problem facing the US: I mean, of course, the servant problem. The gentry should have no trouble finding legal domestic staff willing to work, and work hard, for a board in the basement and scraps from the table, and the US will once again be a paradise for all the good and the great.

    Good paraphrase of Ebenezer Scrooge.

    How about the fact that the GOP has obstructed every jobs bill that has come from the Democrats?
    How come all of these green jobs have been bought out by the oil industry?

    Try to start a business, and you’ll find you can’t sell any product to people who have no money. It’s not only cruel, it’s economically damaging to tax rich people at such a drastically lower rate than the working poor. And cutting food stamps during a crisis? Unbelievably cruel.

    As someone who is among the “working poor”?

    Before Obamacare, I had an effective 0% tax rate. I was classified as an independent contractor at work, and so it was on me to do my taxes. Given that the amount I made was so low, once all of my deductions were factored in I fell below the threshold and so usually did not need to pay in.

    After Obamacare? I’m now facing an effective 7% tax rate. I was forcibly re-classed due to the legislation, and so I now get hit with withholding. This means I’m having to do with less money each month, further complicating my financial situation.

    Good question where are they? Obama had the house and senate for the first two years.

    And it isn’t like we are rolling in extra jobs either.

    Is this something you honestly believe?

    “Try to start a business and the libs will be there demanding you pay all your profits to your employees and then pay taxes on top of it.”
    .
    I did not find that to be the case at all and I have started and operate several businesses. Do you have any facts to support your comment?

    @Quantum Leaper

    Red states take in more aid than the Blue states who pay out more than in.

    @Michael wme

    I think more people would die in the food riots than simple starvation.
