1. Oh the joy...

 

A Republican actually pointing this out... considering that the vast majority off "donor states" are blue and the vast majority of "welfare states" are red if this actually gains traction and people start realizing this it would be hilarious.

3. Maybe "Donor States" will become a new mantra like the old and inaccurate "Death Tax"

Donor States should be regularly uttered in every Democratic politicians public utterance.

6. Yup it's about time the spending worrywarts in the red states are taught a lesson.

Time to start spending some of that Pentagon money in the blue states where it comes from.

14. I hope so

I live in Tennessee (which gets $1.27 for every dollar it pays in taxes) and to hear the backwards right-wingers here grumbling about how "the durn gummint needs to keep its hands to itself and stay out of people's wallets" is infuriating.

Not very catchy, I realize.

Maybe "Parasite States"

28. They certainly are not Romney's 47% moochers who vote for Democrats no matter what.

There needs to be a new categotry of moochers and takers who are too stupid to realize they bleed off those they despise and in their tiny minds think they are Libertarian Republicans.

9. KY had enough money...

 

... to build Noah's ark

These states that get more than they put in...especially in areas that AREN'T vast deserts or rugged mountains but rather populated (like my state of NC), if they'd use their money to set up decent public transpo and some incentives to make people want to live there, like some arts and parks and some quality of life.... then they might get enough businesses, and a standard of living, to become donor states, or at least break even. Of course, unlike NJ, agrarian states, not the size of CA, have a harder time with that.

They believe in guns, no government and Ja-hee-sus! Reason, logic and facts have no impact on them.

25. Christie did as much as any Democrat to defeat Willard (Mitt) Romney . . .

 

With the possible exception of President Obama, Governor Christie did as much as any individual Democrat to assure the defeat of Willard (Mitt) Romney last November. He may be a Republican, and even an asshole Republican, but his show of partnership with our President after Hurricane Sandy was a huge boost to Obama's fortunes at the most important point in that election campaign.

Yeah, you can say it was only to assure the best possible outcome at a time when his State desperately needed Federal relief, so what? Christie helped convince a large number of the all-important "undecided" voters that maybe Obama wasn't Stalin and Hitler's lovechild, and, just maybe, voting for him might not be tantamount to treason. For doing that I will forgive him quite a bit.

33. It helped Obama

but, I think Bill Clinton did more with his speech at the DNC. Joe Biden did a lot as well, with his beating Ryan in the debate after Obama did poorly in the first debate.

I think Nate Silver's analysis showed that momentum was already moving back to Obama before the hurricane as well.

40. Maybe so . . .

 

However, if the Republicans had done just a little better in Ohio, they could have gone into election-stealing mode, and possibly taken both that State and the always easily stolen Florida. Christie was a big plus for President Obama when he needed the help most.

California's budget would be if we got back $1.51 for every $1 paid?

We'd have enough money to actually pay teachers!

And, I'm not a teacher, or have any relative that's a teacher.

21. And so, Chris Christie tries to court Democrats.

Forget it. We see who and what you are, Chris Christie, and if I have anything to do with deciding who is the next president, it won't be you.

I do not like to see anything posted on DU about Chris Christie. What an ugly, greedy, mean hog of a politician. Except that I should apologize to hogs because they are really much nicer than Chris Christie.

32. I don't think his goal in that exchange was to "court Democrats."

He was delivering a beat down and defending his state, and imparting a few facts to a libertarian asswipe and his entourage of mouth breathers. I think the term "donor states" is a nice touch, and I could care less if he gets credit for it--it's the truth.

It may have the side effect of charming independents who tend to vote the Democratic ticket, but real Democrats aren't that easily swayed.

I've paid "donor state" taxes all my life, even when I was out of country for years at a time. It's nice to see the point made that the people who yell the most contribute the least.

26. Christie is playing it like a smart pol.

Rand is just looking like a petty whiner. No love for Christie here, but it's an interesting contrast to just how badly Rand is handling it.

Here's hoping they manage to finally split the party in two.

The Republican party. Many Republican States depend on the hundreds of billions of dollars that are distributed between the states.

39. "Donor State"

needs to be the mantra of every demo leader when one of the reps from a moocher state opens his/her mouth about how washington is bleeding them dry. Over and over again until it sticks and until the clueless are made aware of this.
