"Welfare-Queen" States

Harold Meyerson has an interesting op/ed about states that take in more federal government largess than their citizens pay in taxes. Why interesting? Well, check out which states are the "spongers" and which states are the "subsidizers." Hint: most of the sponger/ welfare queen states typically support the political party whose name starts with an "R" and whose pols would like to shrink the gummint so much you could "drown it in the bathtub" (G. Norquist). Wonder how that news would go over with their teabagging constituents (if those constituents had two brain cells to rub together, that is)?
