Interesting how both PJinfinity and billgrr are SO invested in telling ND how big a moocher state it is.

So they live here? And have this attitude?

The quoted "statistics" are relevant especially to those who have it in for ND, because as red neck was saying, one can spin stats to come up with whatever message one wants.

Are PJinfinity and billgrr running for office to correct these horrible inequities? Are they working to elect those that would correct these horrible inequities?

Is Sen. Heitkamp to their liking? She plans to bring home bacon for ND, just like Sen. Hoeven and Rep. Cramer. It is how the current game is played.

Do something more constructive with your time and air: kwitcherbeefin' and work to elect a corrector. The tired old talking points are that and more. Start doing rather than saying. Then come back and preach.

"Thanks North Dakopta for bringing home all those tax dollars.. Just makes this a better place to live and it really ticks off these libs!!!!!!!!!"

That about sums up the Republican party. Users and takers.

Poverty could be abolished if people were just allowed to keep their minimum wage where it is.

PreJudice16.....now it worked...there was one space I needed to take out that was hiding from me....

But I feel getting those federal dollars is the progressive thing to do.....that is why ND and all the states willingly give the feds their money....to get it back....and then some in many cases. We should celebrate that we get more gifts than we give...this is true Utopia...

You can't -- and apparently there are other geniuses who can't find the stats. That's why I'm posting the link right here:

It's no secret that North Dakota gets back TWO DOLLARS in federal tax money for every ONE paid in.

It's hilarious that you Tea-Anderthals now choose to pretend you can't locate your own state's budget stats!

Try Google, you mugwumps.

Round and round we go. The whole "your moochers are worse than our moochers" thing is wearing a bit thin these days, don't you think?

"and the only way a farmer gets the subsidies is to buy federal crop insurance"

________________

You can try to justify, equivocate and explain it away all you want. The reality is this:

North Dakota is the nation's Top 6 Taker State.

landslide2014 says...."But I bet you don't consider that a waste of taxpayer money do you in a blue state????"

I find that deplorable and unacceptable.

Now try to stay on task here. We are talking about North Dakota being a taker state.

The oh-so angry Republicans prove up what Alfred Adler said long ago:

"It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them."
