New York is not Alabama. It is a massive city with massive infrastructure. Don't forget, New York City had to pay a MILLION DOLLARS A DAY TO PROTECT TRUMP AND HIS FAMILY.

There is FAR more to NY than the boroughs...




And don't forget Trump redid an ice skating rink in a public park under budget and inside a deadline. And gave profits back.

Even before the Trump GOP tax plan, New York was contributing far more federal dollars than it gets back:

"All told, New York provided $19.9 billion more in tax revenue than it received back, the report found."

After the Trump GOP tax plan, New York will be paying billions more. Time to kick every single blue state Republican out of office.

Does that calculation include the economic benefits that NYC gets from having the Federal Reserve Bank of NY ?

There's a lot of financial regulations that funnel capital into blue states, and I often wonder if these "reports" capture the GDP increases from them.

Yes it does. Is the GOP going to pay NYC back for all the multiple millions Trump family cost them in security? The Trump GOP tax plan really punched Trump's home town in the face.

Where do you see this information? It's not in the article and it's not in the report.

I've seen no evidence that the central bank's presence is not being accounted for, so it's surprising that you claim it is.

That goes in the calculation for what New York gets back in federal dollars. The article concludes with this:

There is some good news. The state will benefit from some changes, notably a larger federal Medicaid reimbursement because of Obamacare, DiNapoli said.

Now we know Trump and the GOP will do all they can to take away health coverage funding, so:

1. In addition to New York paying BILLONS more than it gets back from the federal
2. In addition to New York having to pay a million dollars a day to secure Trump and his family
3. The Trump GOP tax plan penalizes New York by removing SALT tax deductions and they will also lose health care coverage funding.

The billions of dollars New York contributes all goes to benefit red states that can't afford to pay for themselves. New York should tell Trump to sell Trump Tower and get out.
