Panthers Lover, tell your state to get off of our dole. "Perpetually on Welfare" indeed.

Actually, he has done that ... but had to back off when he got such grief over it. He stood his ground to make the point, but in the end, he knows that it's the people who will suffer. Why should the people of SC suffer when everyone else is getting their "share." Your dole, indeed ... last time I looked, we all pay into the federal system.

No, SC is getting more than their "share". They put in a dollar and get back 1.37.

Good to know that you acknowlege that people that get taken off of welfare can suffer, and that as long as they are from SC it's okay to keep them on the taxpayer dime.

Wow, looks like just about all of the "tax and spend" "liberal" states are actually supporting the "lower my taxes NOW!" states when it comes to federal funding. How about that.

And let's see, which state wins the prize for most heavily subsidized? Why it's Ms. Palins!

Changing Ranks

The state that raised its ratio the most over the past ten years is Alaska where federal spending rose from $1.30 to $1.89 for each dollar in taxes. This 59-cent increase beats out Alabama, where federal spending increased 35¢ per dollar of tax, West Virginia (33¢ more spending per dollar), and Kentucky (32¢ more spending per dollar).

So, will your governor refuse all this money on moral grounds? Just think, he could show all us liberals up!

He would, if it were just him .... btw, there's a provision in the stimulus bill written specifically because of Mark Sanford. It basically says that if the governor of state declines/refuses to take any of the money, the federal government need only go to the state legislature to get them to sign off on it ... it was done because of Sanford's refusal before to take the money. (His refusal also was about a dispute with the state unemployment folks in which he was/is demanding more accountability from their office.)

Any word on when he will get the Legislature to not take in more than they pay out in Federal taxes? Those poor liberal states - how can they afford Cadillacs for every homeless person if they are giving their money to South Carolina and Alabama? Clearly they need more of that money!

Most of the federal money being spent in the red states is going to those that vote for Democrats.

Any chance we can get Bubba back in the white house a bit? That man knew a thing or two about stimulus.
