California Keeps Subsidizing Other States

It’s no secret that California taxpayers keep the federal government afloat. It’s also no secret that the Golden State has traditionally received far less in return than other states. In fact, California only gets 78 cents for every tax dollar it sends to Washington DC. Just seven other states receive a worse deal. So, it’s about time that the feds started sending more money to the Left Coast, especially during the economic downturn. And it’s past time that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Democratic leaders started demanding more funds from the feds.
