Im a little confused with your numbers. So are you saying California has a 300? surplus???
300 million, billion, trillion? After all is said and done we have a surplus? Thats not what I read in other places...I thought California was broke? We have had several cities go bankrupt recently and thats not over yet....How can we have a surplus when we can't even pay our pensions?
The OP wasn't discussing state budgets. The poster was describing the amount of money a state gives to the federal government thru taxes vs the amount that state receives in federal funds.
It is difficult to find anyone who is capable of research and analysis rather than parroting what they hear from others who want any excuse to spew their vitriol. Thank you!
I don't comment on stories here unless they make no sense at all and this is one of them. There is no mention, until your comment, of how much more some states send to the Feds vs. how much they get back. Thank you very much for bringing up this very important and often ignored point.
