States that voted Democrat in 2016 generally rely less on federal funding than Republican states, according to a study by WalletHub.

The analysis looked at the return on taxes paid to the federal government, the share of federal jobs, and federal funding as a share of state revenue.

Thirteen out of the top 15 states found to be most dependent on the federal government voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Ten out of the 15 least dependent states voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

‘No ranking like this is ever going to be perfect’

“Obviously, no ranking like this is ever going to be perfect,” Stan Veuger, an economist at the American Enterprise Institute, told Yahoo Finance. “Some things you can definitely say, like where the states that have the highest per capita income or pay the most in taxes.”

But “it’s not really true across the board,” Veuger said. “Virginia is a blue state and obviously has a lot of federal contractors and a lot of federal money … It obviously relies heavily on what the federal government does.”

According to WalletHub’s analysis, Virginia receives the second-highest amount of federal contracts while ranking federal funding as a share of state revenue. And given that WalletHub weighted federal funding four times more than share of federal jobs, Virginia is one of the least-dependent states on the federal government.

‘Poor states receive more federal funding through Medicaid’

WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez explained that “federal funding as a percentage of state revenue was calculated as states’ intergovernmental revenue from the federal government divided by the states’ general revenue..”

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/states-dependent-federal-government-180735773.html
>>
Intergovernmental revenue includes funding for Medicaid, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), child welfare services, and other low-income assistance programs. For TANF, Kentucky (3rd overall), Alaska (7th overall), and Delaware use the most federal dollars.

“Because the federal income tax is progressive,” Veuger said, “I think you can also generally say that poor states receive more federal funding through Medicaid, which is a huge part of states’ budgets.”

In the 2017 fiscal year, Montana, the eighth-most dependent state overall in WalletHub’s analysis, received the highest amount of federal dollars for Medicaid at 80%. It was followed closely by West Virginia (4th overall), Arkansas, Kentucky (3rd overall), New Mexico (1st overall), and Arizona (6th overall).

In terms of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, Massachusetts ranked first, followed by New York, Alaska, North Dakota, and Wyoming. On the other end of the spectrum, Mississippi is the lowest, followed by Arkansas, West Virginia, Idaho, and Alabama.

Veuger noted that “all the poor states are red. Mississippi and Louisiana get a lot of Medicaid money.”

Not everyone in the American working class is a bum. There are bums that fall though the cracks of the system and are allowed to benefit, white and black. Many of them are rich people who go bankrupt and leave taxpayers on the hook for tens of millions while they continue to live lavish lives. But the large majority of us aren't bums.

And bums aren't bums because they have state health insurance. Nobody stops working because their health is insured.

And bad habits can be mitigated with education, incentivising physical activity, and taxing junk food.

I wouldn't mind living in SF, if I had the money. Conservative pundits and politicians seem to think the place is hell on Earth. While continuing to live in blue states. Mostly because they don't want their base/audience to know that liberal policies have tended to produce places that people want to live in and invest in, that more than carry their own water as well as some of others.

Liberal states have laid the groundwork for social and technological progress, because we invest a lot into taking policy risks with new programs and regulation. And conservative pundits sit on the sidelines jeering, but in the long run they become supporters of the policies we engineer. Then they act like they were always open to medicare, social security, gay marriage, always against the Iraq war, etc etc.

As a liberal I think there's too much focus on this artificial concept of fairness when it comes to designing policy. In a certain scope, fairness is an important consideration in economic interactions, because we want to incentivise bringing labor and talent to where there is social demand, so we should generally reward that behavior, so that there's more wealth to go around. Fairness in the context of this worldview isn't the end within itself, but a means to an end which is a society that's more prosperous overall.

On a grander scale, very little of the conditions we find ourselves in, relative to others, is deserved in any capacity. And even if our highest priority is fairness, for the vast majority of history, distribution of property happened in a totally random fashion with respect to any sort of higher social good. It's hard to see how imposing totally unfettered markets on the randomness would suddenly produce fair outcomes.

Redistribution of wealth is important because the less money one has, the more valuable each dollar is in enabling one to prosper and perform to full potential. Even a 50% tax on 100 million dollars in wealth would produce marginal, if any, loss of quality of life for the individual being taxed or their immediate family. But when redistributed that wealth can vastly improve life outcomes and productivity of many more people living in poverty.

The important policy question shouldn't be whether it's better to have redistributive policies, but ultimately that we identify an optimal balance in incentivising the production of wealth while distributing it in a manner that produces the greatest beneficial impact in the long-term.

Also tl;dr for the idiots who haven't made the connection yet: State taxes and federal taxes are completely disconnected from one another. A larger state with contribute more on sheer size alone than a smaller state.

It says it in the article-
The recent tax package passed makes it harder for blue states to take state taxes in. They're getting fucked by red-state policies taking over federal policy by making it harder for places like NY to take taxes to spend on their own citizens.

It also doesn't help for NYC that it was conservative for most of the early aughts. It's course correction from fuckfaces like guliani deciding to not pay for shit in the moment and put it off for later times. Liberals aren't fortune tellers or amazing economists, they just know you need to pay for shit sometimes.

>making it harder for places like NY to take taxes to spend on their own citizens.

Somebody doesn't live in New York.

The NY State government is one of the most corrupt legislatures in the entirety of the US. Our roads are shit, counties are having trouble funding EMS services, yet we have the highest tax burden in the country. And in addition to our legislature just having passed a bill giving themselves raises that make them the highest paid legislature in the country, our Governor bitched about Trump's tax cuts giving the state a deficit in the exact same ideologically partisan bullshit manner you have in your post, right before sneaking a raise for himself into a "special" midnight session when the budget was being passed.

The NY state population is dwindling because most NY politicians bow to NYC to the point that state-level political representation effectively doesn't exist north of Westchester, which has finally alienated enough non-NYC New Yorkers enough to make them want to live anywhere else- especially since most of them simply can't afford to live in the state.

If you want to tighten up subsidies, go right on ahead. But it can only be deliberately misleading to call agriculture states dependent on federal funds. The subsidies exist to keep food cheap for the consumer. Cash crop Farmers who operate on the free market can control their prices and make far more money. Back in the dustbowl days, it was needed because Farmers didn't have enough assets to buy crop insurance. Things are entirely different today. The only people who would be hurt are the lower income households who spend a Greater share of their budget on groceries

You faggots keep trying to make this an issue of liberals calling conservatives lazy, because you (the ones making the arguement) are too stupid to appreciate a society that isn't a 0 sum game.

The natural conclusion that follows from this data isn't that liberals/conservatives are more lazy. It's in regards to how government policy tends to influence wealth creation and overall economic prosperity. States with liberal policy tend to do better in attracting business investment, particularly high tech industries. Because we readily invest in our infrastructure, education, and people, which tends to lead to better social outcomes and places that people want to move to.

There are more blacks on welfare than whites. Whites "benefit" from government assistance better than anyone else simply because they are smart enough to understand what those benefits are and how to use them. Benefit in this sense meaning how likely they are to pull themselves out of poverty. That study was done by a left leaning think tank and even then they couldn't understand why blacks couldn't bring themselves out of poverty given the amount of assistance they were provided. The fact is that regardless of the assistance you provide poor blacks they wont use it to pursue a middle class lifestyle because then they wouldn't receive their free money.

"Most dependent" is an extremely bad metric. If a state does a lot of business with the federal government, that state's "most dependent" score will go up, but in reality the business arrangement may be mutually beneficial or to the federal government's benefit.

>>387900
Liberals don't read into these results that more white people are benefiting from government so should support it more, or that conservatives are lazy; the point is that states with liberal policies, that actively invest in public infrastructure and transportation, green energy, a path to universal healthcare, public education, still feature relatively strong economies, and you don't need to consign the poor and backward to poverty in order to protect positive outcomes for the rest of us. On the contrary, investing in social programs often produce better social outcomes and enable more people return to productivity when they're down.

>>387903
Yes, different demographics have different histories and different attributes and attitudes and live in different places. Thus tend to experience different outcomes in aggregate.

But black people still live here, they're not going anywhere. Even if all of them lived in abject poverty they're not going anywhere. Poverty generally does the opposite of making a community disappear in terms of share of population.

So you can throw a perpetual tantrum for the rest of our history, that not everyone will be on our level and just obstruct all positive social developments, or we can try and improve the more backward and impoverished portions of our population, maybe folks on the right can come up with a unique perspective on how to accomplish that instead of enacting policies thinly veiled just to hurt blacks a little more than whites get hurt.

The real reason it doesn't work is that the rich don't make as much money as we think they do. The vast majority of a country's tax revenue is going to come from the 99%, not the 1%, even if the 1% is taxed at 100%.
>>
>>388067
Are you, perhaps, a /pol/tard?
>>388068
That is shifting the argument that I had originally responded to. Blacks are on average poorer, that is to say a greater proportion of the black population are in poverty. So since a higher proportion are in poverty, a greater percentage of the black population would qualify for and use welfare services compared to blacks that don't.

In 2017, of the 42.4-45.7 million black people in the US, between 17%-21.2% or 7.8-8.9 million were in poverty. This matches up closely with the amount of black people that use welfare services, with 10.5m using SNAP in 2017. You could map this with whites as well and see: 195,2m total, 8.7% or 16.9m in poverty, 14.9m used SNAP in 2017. What you can conclude is that poor people use social services, which shouldn't be a shocking revelation. (You) are making a mountain out of a molehill and using it to race bait.

You're trolling, but there are some white communities that do need help and are discriminated against by other whites.

Everyone already knows this is it really news worth?

Next you will tell me how corporate welfare is way more expensive then regular welfare

Personally, I unironically believe that the biggest degree of human civilization was reached in pre-2008 social-liberal democracies.

I would say the same about you but you really don't seem to understand math.
And I have no objections to the mentally handicapped using the internet so I won't insult you

>Blacks are on average poorer, that is to say a greater proportion of the black population are in poverty. So since a higher proportion are in poverty, a greater percentage of the black population would qualify for and use welfare services compared to blacks that don't.
Yeah that's literally the point, which you were trying to dispute.
>>
>>390456
What I was disputing was that there are more blacks on the welfare dole than whites, which was easily done. The attempted goal post shifting means nothing since it's just saying blacks are poorer on average than whites. So we learned that whites use the most welfare even through blacks and hispanics and natives are poorer overall, big suprise.

>goal post shifting
Not him, but you are the one shifting the goalposts and you can't even use the term properly.
The rest of your sentences aren't even cohesive so people can't answer it properly.

Stop beating around the bush here: Blacks and to a lesser degree Hispanics are over represented as criminals, prisoners, the poor and underrepresented in departments; educated, high IQ and the rich.
Therefore states that have Blacks and Hispanics over-represented in their demographics compared to the US average can be expected to be a drain for other states.
It is exactly the same case in Europe with their 3rd worlders (muslims).

Imagine my shock

Otherwise it is fairly balanced between republicans and democrat states

He is implying that he wants to devastate blacks by importing so many illegals that the welfare system collapses through hyperinflation or the government defaulting on its debt.

>when white people use it the most it's not welfare
Then there is no welfare in the US, no welfare queens. Thanks for killing the boogeyman.

Farm subsidy is not welfare.
The other things are though
>>392192
Way to be retarded
>>
>>392196
The idea of a subsidy may not be directly welfare, but the moment it's used then yes it does become welfare.
>>
>>392196
So wrong

Subsidies are definitely farmer welfare.

Watch retardlicans try to parse which types of “free money from the government” are American and which are socialist. Pfft.

They have high concentrations of black Americans and those states seem to be doing well, according to OP's map
>>
>>386061
Because poor white Americans were trainned for decades by rich white Americans to blame their problems on blacks. So long as p. whites have someone they can look down on they don't question what the r. whites do. Shit social net? Must be all the blacks/browns suck it up. Quality of life not good? Well least I'm a freeman and not a slave.

Take away this programming, and more people start to question why they're one bad circumstance from living on the streets.

That is exactly why the elite don't ever want the race divide to die. When you stop blaming your problems on other poor people and find out their lives are just as shit, you come together and realize it's time to break out the guillotines again.

In the case of Louisiana, it's the petroleum industry. We have some of the highest cancer rates in the country, and once all other factors are accounted for, petroleum-related pollution is the culprit.

>oil companies extract profits from louisiana
>costs get socialized in the form of cancer and medicaid money to respond to it
>loads of subsidies and tax breaks for oil companies just to make sure we're fucking it up as hard as possible

Do you think people who live above the (VA/NC)/(VA/TN)/(KY/TN) line have it relatively better than those below that line?

Obviously. When the state gov abandons it's own, the Fed gov has to pick up, and how is that funded? Taxes on ethical players and healthy economies. Austerity is religious in origin and it's defenders defend it in the same way. It's a dog whistle surrogate for gassing undesirables.

I wonder what some of the rankings that put Kentucky near the bottom (i.e. Obesity, health, pollution, etc) would be if you took out eastern KY
