    Why hasn't Tiny Hands Trump tweeted about this attempted terrorist attack on US soil?

    I'm guessing there would be some degree of an inverse relationship between state income tax rate and the need for various forms of federal assistance. If that is indeed the case, then it quite reasonable for the state income taxes to be deductible.

    You do know there are other ways to collect than income, right? Or are you trying to bring them down because your state can't control its wallet? I'm shocked your rate's higher than ours...

    The fact that the media is complicit in this is just as awful...

    I agree. But, like I have been stating over and over again. Some things America cares about and some things they don't. Now if he had spit on the Flag or something while he was doing it?

    Still wouldn't have mattered. White guy. white guys can spit on the flag. Unless they're liberals.

    White guys can even wear the flag as a rain poncho. It's ok.

    Geezer you have that in reverse - in general blue states are paying for the red states.

    Most Federally Dependent States

    Which States Are Givers and Which Are Takers?

    If you look only at how much the federal government spends per person in each state compared with the amount its citizens pay in federal income taxes—other states stand out, particularly South Carolina: The Palmetto State receives $7.87 back from Washington for every $1 its citizens pay in federal tax. This bar chart, made from WalletHub's data, reveals the sharp discrepancies among states on that measure.

    On the other side of this group, folks in 14 states, including Delaware, Minnesota, Illinois, Nebraska, and Ohio, get back less than $1 for each $1 they spend in taxes.

    It’s not just that some states are getting way more in return for their federal tax dollars, but the disproportionate amount of federal aid that some states receive allows them to keep their own taxes artificially low. That's the argument WalletHub analysts make in their 2014 Report on Best and Worst States to Be a Taxpayer.

    Another part of the explanation is easier to discern. The reddest states on that map at the top—Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, New Mexico, Maine—have exceptionally high poverty rates and thus receive disproportionately large shares of federal dollars. Through a variety of social programs, the federal government disburses hundreds of billions of dollars each year to maintain a “safety net” intended to help the neediest among us. Consider, for example, the percentage of each state’s residents who get “food stamps” through the federal government’s SNAP program. This chart tells the story.

    That's how I originally took his argument but I don't think that's what he actually means...?

    I know, but I wasn’t talking about Republican vs. Democrat states. I was talking about states that were shaded blue in a certain map indicating a higher state income tax vs. white states with a lower rate. It has nothing to do with how they voted. In the map I linked Iowa and Maine are dark blue, along with OR, CA, and NY.

    This is the link I was referencing. Although it makes sense that the states supporting the highest state taxes are generally less libertarian... SC, etc, vs TX & ND & whatnot.
    It seems weird that OR is at 10% while WA is untaxed.

    OR has income tax and zero sales tax.

    WA has sales tax and zero income tax.

    Of course, that should have been obvious. They probably balance out in other places too. I think stuff like clothing is exempt from sales tax in MN.
