Should Federal resources be allocated to states according to 1) how much they pay in federal taxes or should some states 2) subsidize others?

That might work. The poor states would get poorer and the richer states get richer. Eventually, the poor states would become deserted.

The attached article breaks down what dollars are spent in each of the top ten states. Most of it involves farm subsidies, contracts to military suppliers, military bases, pharmaceutical companies because of Medicare and Medicaid. New Mexico gets a huge bump based on their Nuclear plants and White Sands.

There are rich states, usually democrat states and poor states. NY has to subsidize Vermont.

Love this question. I'll be eager to see the stats once more votes are in.

Particularly how each state voted.

I see this country as many parts making a whole. We help each other as necessary.
