I know I’ve blogged about this one before.
Today, the Times Economix blog has a piece up about yet another study that shows that states in the South and the West take more money from the federal treasury than they give back in taxes. In the language of Ayn Rand’s John Galt, they are basically the bloodsucker thieves of the rest of us.
I really wish the Democratic Party, and just people in general, would start talking this up. I know that the late Senator Moynihan used to patronize a Harvard study coming out once a year, showing a similar kind of result. But I think I read that the Republican Senators of the South threatened to mess with Harvard’s tax exemption if the report kept coming out. So it was made to disappear.
It’s good to see that someone has picked up the mantle against the Republican Bloodsuckers, of whom Sarah Palin or Mike Huckabee might be the poster children. (But any of them would do.)
Stop touching our money!
