Not only do blue states subsidize red states, but blue regions in red states subsidize red regions

As states exchange insults over who subsidizes who (yes, blue states subsidize red states), some people I've been talking to are suggesting that red states may face a worse fiscal crisis than blue this time around, bc of their different revenue bases 1/

It is also true that the blue regions within red states subsidize the rest of the states. In Kentucky, Louisville, Lexington, and Northern Kentucky are responsible for much of the revenue from state taxes. Louisville and Lexington consistently vote Democratic.

2. And Blue Regions stand by while Hate Radio uses

the economic power, prestige and infrastructure of Blue Cities and Regions to spew hateful, racist and harmful propaganda against Blue areas.

Boycott Limbaugh the fuck off the radio in Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati and he wouldn't be on the radio anywhere in Ohio.
