Republicans want stuff

Of the 32 states which receive more than they contribute [from the federal government], 27 states (84%) are Republican.Of the 18 states which contribute more than they receive, 14 states (78%) are Democratic.

Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County, Colorado.
