true. but blue states don't throw fits about socialism and how helping others is bad because "it's socialism and government overreach". red states do and often. they even voted not to send funding to NY when it got trashed by Sandy

I'd vote no to sending money to ny and I live here. Money in ny goes straight to politicians bank accounts, passing bills to make money, over auditing businesses, paying off debt they somehow acquire with all the money being thrown at them, and that they collect. State can buy a damn football stadium but god forbid doing something useful.

Why would I want a state that does nothing to get more money to not do shit.

Blue states have the highest GDP in the nation, no red states should get any funding at all because why would a state that does nothing get more money to not do shit?

All funding should go to California, New York and Massachusetts by your own logic.

That's just another way of saying a majority of the top 10 states for GDP are Blue states.

Either way: red states contribute less than blue states. So by the logic of the first person I responded to, red states deserve nothing at all.

You said red states “do nothing”. That’s objectively false. Try to avoid moving the goalposts in the future.

Texas contributes the most to the GDP for red states at 8.66%(based on your link), but is still something close to 40% less than what California does.

Except if you look at what areas in Texas contribute the most to their overall GDP, it's still the Blue Cities that contribute the most to that 8.66%.

If we wanna talk about moving goal posts, let's talk about how even in red states, blue cities produce and contribute more to society and the national gdp. Or we could talk about how interesting it is that red cities in red states are still Objectively worse off than blue cities in red states.

Edit: Additionally. The bottom states for GDP are almost all Red states. So yes objectively Red states do nothing.

You can't say anything not demonizing republicans on Reddit news.

I didn't say all states don't deserve anything I said specifically NYS. NY doesn't deserve anything because it's corrupt asf.

34 republican congressional members conspired to overthrow the government. Again by your logic, the republican party is corrupt asf, and therefore all Republican controlled states deserve nothing at all.
