Back after a few weeks hiatus. Map below (from this old post by The Economist) shows that Mississippi where conservative McDaniel rants against deficits and government assistance to the needy is among the States that receive the most in fiscal transfers.
Note that transfers to Mississippi by the Federal government are around 250% of the State’s GDP, and they are consistently in deficit all the time. In absolute terms, New York is the State that transfers the most to other members of the Union. In relative terms (with respect to the State’s own GDP), Delaware is the most generous State in the Union.
