Tired of living in a blue state and having to fund all these dumb hicks.

High-tax, traditionally Democratic states (blue), subsidize low-tax, traditionally Republican states (red) — in a big way.

You people complain about big government, but the truth is that states like New York and California totally fund your ass and give you all those great government benefits. I think blue states should just stop sending you money.

what are gubmint subsidies.

Dumb ass beta liberals cabt understand that. Most military bases are in the South. As is agriculture. As well as those super upstanding citizens that leech money off gubmint tit but dont pay taxes and like Basketball Nikes and Newports.

Meanwhile in NYC, hipsters and Democrats are so dumb they need the government to tell that a 21oz soda isn't good for your health and you will get strangled tondeath for avoiding a nickels worth of tax.

Stay mad betacuck liberals.

Only thing the blue states are funding is leftist degeneracy in other word welfare state. Stop giving money to sngle mother whores, they shouldn't get a penny.

It is true that taxpayers in high-tax states benefit the most from the deduction. However, these states send far more tax dollars to Washington than residents in low-tax states.

mixing federal taxes with state
mixing poor people with rich
SALT deductions benefit high tax states more than low tax states since the deduction end of being larger
However, blue states pay more in overall fed. taxes because they have higher incomes because poor people wouldn't be able to afford to live in a state with high taxes

tfw the republican party is the party for the poor because they can't afford to live in blue states.

The ones who actually make the money in blue states are Republicans living in Democrat cities.

The only shit blue state taxes fund in red states is all the shitty welfare programs for the niggers you dump on us.

Jordan Moore

Whoever says this shit doesn't understand how basic egonomigs works.

The Red states that recieve more federal funding than they give back in taxes are also highly populated by niggers (look up the Black Belt, named for it's black soil and black niggers).
Since it's proven that black people do nothing but take in welfare, and of course don't pay taxes, yes these 30% black states would have a significant deifict.
By saying that these red states have deficits, you're actually admitting that niggers are bad for the economy.

Farm bill in the Midwest (started under FDR, a fucking Democrat), niggers in the South.
There, that's 99% of the welfare you just described, and it has nothing to do with hardworking whites. Saged.

When you have pride in yourself you are less willing to take gibs (because it is deeply shameful to be a burden on your fellow citizens, obviously) and thus you vote against the state giving gibs (or taking taxes to gibs less moral people in the community).

This means, to democrat morons, you are "poor". To us it means we take care of our selves and the community without needing the government to be involved.

You liberal morons can all go straight to hell when the gibs run out, bitches.

If Blue states were funding the US, then why are high tax blue states paying more under Trumps tax cuts than the rest of the US?

Oh yeah, because they ended State and Local tax exemptions. Kinda as if the rest of the US was subsidizing blue state sheep, huh

I get a kick out of the Democrats in my home town bitching about their taxes going up. I grew up on the Connecticut gold coast MN. The average income is over double the national average, the average property is close to a million dollars. These entitled fucks aren't asking for the rich to get taxed, their asking for the OTHER rich people to get taxed.

In fact, most high-tax states send more money to Washington than they get back in federal spending.

So, you’re saying that states that charge more taxes actually send more money to the federal government? Who would have thought?

Lincoln Ramirez

Wrong.
Many blue state do not live within their means, as they are able to write off their high state tax as a deduction, making them essentially leach off of their red state neighbors. You liberals in NY, WI and CA {among other states) are f*cked if the tax bill does away with this deduction, many of your producers will leave in a mass exodus, as Cuomo of NY has already whined liked a baby about this proposal.

And they can keep doing so, now without deducting their contributions via SALT.

Also, if blue states are picking up the tab, then who is REALLY the smart ones? The people who get more than they give, or the ones who give more than they get, year after year?

This is also the reason Hollywood is now filming more things in places like Georgia, Louisiana and Ohio. California is a taxed up cesspool and they can't make a profit by filming there yet so many Republican states welcome them in without taxing the absolute fuck out of them. It also ends up employing thousands in those states during the filming. Democrats destroy most anything they touch given enough time.

States don't pay taxes, taxpayers do. And in both blue and red states, Republicans pay the taxes, and Democrats get the checks.

Colton Flores

local inflation increases cost of living in cities
higher salaries are needed for the same cost of living
higher salaries result in higher taxes
lower salaries/wages result in more welfare

Democrats literally fuel this effect that you're describing.

Can confirm. Grew up in Boston. I've lived in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Maine, Maryland, and West Virginia since then. I won't even visit the coastal states anymore. City people don't realize how badly cities smell. NYC reeks of urine about as strongly as a feedlot, to say nothing about the noise, congestion, and cost of living.

Blue States are rich because they actually have advanced economies that they built from properly having infrastructure, and funding good schools that create skilled labor. There's a reason why a lot of deep-red states like Oklahoma and Kansas turn to shit holes whenever their mining / farming / oil industry has a bad season.
Most social spending in Red-states are from medicare and social security. Actual welfare (TANF) is given to States as block-grants which they can largely distribute at will. A lot of red-states just pocket most of it.
Farm subsidiaries are only $25 billion for the entire nation.
To make blue states pay more for the tax cuts.
Taxes raised by State and local governments rarely get sent to the federal government. What really is happening is that most Blue States, even while using SALT, generate more revenue from the economy that they have than most Red-states, partially because a lot of them properly and fully invest in infrastructure and their labour.
What is the dust bowl
the great depression caused a massive rural emigration to cities. Most farmers weren't subsistence ones who lived in their own little villages and were self-sufficient, but people who got loans from the bank for their land and equipment and got fucked up when the financial market collapsed and those things repo'd after crop prices dropped.

CA and NY run huge deficits every year. IN and TN have balanced budget amendments and managed to make it every year. But really this argument is completely skewed by all the blacks and Latinx that live in the southern states- which the liberals have forced upon this once great nation! No more blacks and Mexicans and suddenly no more federal spending for welfare necessary, plus wages rise as a function of supply and demand (taking into account the mexis that work and aren't on welfare).
