think about that..the IRS COLLECTS 369 billion from California, and the federal government SPENDS 350 billion on California....so what cali contributes to the fed is what 20 billion

where as Texas: the IRS collects 265 billion and the federal government spends only 234 billion......which means Texas is a bigger contributor to the fed than cali 30 billion to calis 20 billion

where as Kansas: the IRS collects 25 billion and the federal government spends only 24 billion......which means Kansas contributes to the fed 1 billion


now we also have very poor and black Mississippi, which the IRS only collects 11 billion, yes the federal government spends 34 billion....which means 23 billion is what poor black Missi TAKES

now we also have very liberal Vermont: the IRS collects 4.3 billion (the lowest of collections from the IRS), yet the fed spends 6.9 billion.....which means very blue Vermont is a TAKER

now there is also purple N. Carolina: the IRS collects 72 billion, yet the fed spends 93 billion....n. Carolina is a taker.....but to give them a break the also have the largest military base of FT. Bragg


now my state New York: the IRS collects 250 billion and the fed spends 195 billion....which means my state of new York contributes 55 billion to the fed....New York is a bigger contributor than cali

Robert Reich (California versus Trumpland)
California unemployment rate is 5.7
Texas is 4.7
Kansas is 4.4

Now taking one point in time to measure economic success is usually not accurate over time. Cali was mired in slow growth and very high unemployment when the economy was bad. California even on this long upswing has a higher unemployment rate not to mention much more expensive to live than Texas which is negatively affected by the current downturn in the oil price.

So great for Cali but I think Robert Reich stat job was also a snow job made for political purposes. I hate to see what happens when the Cali voters elect to rejoining Mexico and the corrupt Mexican government thieves move in to drain the accounts of those Silicon Valley guys.

The OP cherry picked a piece written by a well known and not so respected left wing economist.
Forbes Welcome



Here's the truth on California's troubled economy and massive debt.
San Bernadino, Stochton, and Vallejo. Three California cities that went belly up.

77 California cities on

Additionally, economic trends forecast Texas as the number one state economy over California by year 2025.

Uh, it doesnt look like that's going to happen:

2015 GDP
California $2,458,535,000,000
Texas $1,586,468,000,000

2014 GDP
California $2,324,995,000,000
Texas $1,601,977,000,000

2014-2015 GDP Growth
California +$133.540 Billion
Texas -$15.509 Billion


Between 2014-2015, California's economy grew by $133 billion in a single year whilst Texas' shrank by $15 billion.

Its nice place to drink wine, but who can afford to live, earn a wage amd own a home?

Your guns laws and 2nd Amendment issue are Illegle and Unconstitional. Ca fails to understand thier beef is with the Criminals and Gangs. Not everyday gun owners.

What over! I See more Califonia takes every day in Arizona.
