Redstone Arsenal, Rocket City (Huntsville), is probably receiving serious federal money.

Also, Fort Rucker and the AF base in Montgomery supports a huge retired population, and don't forget the very large retired population living in the vicinity of now-defunct Fort McClellan at Anniston.

In fact, I'd say that the so-called "entitled" population of Alabama is hugely comprised of retired military personnel, all of which usually vote a conservative ticket.

So...I'm not convinced that labeling Alabama as a death spiral state,when compared to, say Ohio, is valid.

Just because a state did not vote for Obama does not mean it is being run well. Look at the criteria to make the list - unfunded liabilities are the top concern. There are about as many Republicans as Democrats who are willing to give away taxpayer money to government employees, I’m afraid. Politicians spend. It’s what people elect them to do.

I remember during the Iraqi war hearing on the radio that the State of Alabama had more people in the war than any other state except Texas.

The population of Alabama is less than metropolitan Houston. So...that seems reasonable.
