Alaska receives 1.84 per tax dollar paid. Mississippi receives 2.02 per tax dollar paid. New Mexico receives 2.03 per tax dollar paid.
Holy cow. Why do they get freebie money. BS. This is why we are bankrupt. They should not get more than they pay. That is called Welfare!!!!!!
BTW, those numbers are exactly the numbers I found in a November, 2007 publication. So it could be that these are rather old numbers.
Also, these are not all “freebie money”. It includes money the government spends for services. For example, I believe if there is a military base in Alaska, the cost of running that base would be considered part of the “tax allotment”.
