Government overhead costs run about 50 percent. So if you give the government $1, getting back anything over 50 cents is a bargain.
That's the message I wish they'd get people to understand.
I think Texas breaks about even. New Mexico makes out like a bandit. West Virginia does pretty well, too, thanks to "Sheets".
Getting anything over 50 cents would be a miracle. In addition to overhead, there is mismanagement and waste on a grand scale so the money that filters down is really a residual amount.
