    Forget rhetoric, Texas gets significant help from Washington

    Forget the rhetoric, Texas gets significant help from Washington

    You wouldn’t know it from all the anti-federal government rhetoric that pervaded the 2010 election, the recently concluded Legislative session, or Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign, but Texas received almost $44 billion in direct federal aid to state and local governments in 2010, according to figures released today by the U.S. Census Bureau, making it the single largest funding stream for state government.

    “In the next two years, federal funding is going to be $54 billion, which is way ahead of the next largest [revenue source], sales tax,

    Must be all these illegals that are costing us so much. I would not believe that total put out. With the worlds 15th largest economy I seriously doubt Texas consumes more than it sends to Washington. Our two year budget is 172 billion$, just passed. According to the numbers cited TWO THIRDS OF OUR BUDGET COMES FROM WASHINGTON??? Pick On California. How much are Texans going to ultimately pay to bail them out??

    Even though that $44 billion figure seems large, that’s mainly because of the number of people living in Texas. In terms of the amount of direct aid given by the federal government to state and local officials broken down on a per capita basis, Texas ranks near the bottom of the list.
    So per person we get the least?

    U.S. spent $10,612 per person in 2010

    Alaska, Virginia emerge as big winners in payouts

    . . . Broken down by states, Alaskans fared the best, with an average of nearly $18,000 per person in federal domestic spending, followed by Virginia, where a huge defense procurement industry meant the government spent more than $17,000 per person.

    Were it a state, the District of Columbia, which is the seat of the federal government, would have topped them all at $102,904 per person in spending . . .

    Do not doubt it a bit. That is where they enhance the economy every day by creating average jobs that provide work for Americans so they can live at or near poverty levels, at the cost of several million $ for each and every one of those poverty level jobs. [/quote]
