Some say it's because a lot of the republicans had jobs :rofl:

Not some, YOU say that. But the fact is, republicans are living off public assistance and welfare big time.

 

The top 10  according to fox business.

 

10) North Dakota
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $10,438
> Population: 672,591
> Pct. of U.S. population: 0.22%
> Amt. per capita: $12,930
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 0.27%

With the third-smallest population in the U.S., North Dakota’s federal spending per capita was understandably larger than more populous states. North Dakota ranked third in the country for receiving Direct payments other than retirement and disability. What is unusual is the large amount of money that North Dakota farmers received from the federal government — the state ranked second in agricultural assistance in the nation, behind only Texas, which has a population more than 37 times that of North Dakota.

 

9) Connecticut
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $10,506
> Population: 3,574,097
> Pct. of U.S. population: 1.16%
> Amt. per capita: $15,662
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 1.73%

Connecticut received almost 50% more government funding per capita than the national average. In 2010, Connecticut was awarded $11.1 billion in military procurement contracts, giving the state the fourth-highest per capita federal defense expenditure — $3,351.88. The Constitution State ranked first for the amount of spending for direct payments other than retirement and disability on a per capita basis. A significant chunk of this amount — almost 60% — was spent solely on medical prescription drug coverage. At $14.1 billion, the amount of federal government expenditures on prescription drugs in Connecticut was more than any other state and over $5 billion more than Florida, the state receiving the second-most federal funds in this category. Connecticut also ranked fifth in per capita federal funding from procurement spending.

 

8) West Virginia
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $10,568
> Population: 1,852,994
> Pct. of U.S. population: 0.6%
> Amt. per capita: $11,609
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 0.67%

West Virginia is the only state in the top 10 where federal spending on defense was not a significant contributor to the total amount of money this state received. In fact, West Virginia ranked 48th for federal defense spending — $609 per capita. A large portion of federal spending in West Virginia, almost 16%, was for Medicare benefits, slightly more than the national rate of 15.6%. West Virginia ranked first in the country for the percentage of people using this benefit at nearly 20%. West Virginians also received more federal spending per capita on retirement and disability benefits — which includes Social Security payments, federal retirement and disability benefits, and veterans benefits — than any other state.

 

7) Alabama
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $10,656
> Population: 4,779,736
> Pct. of U.S. population: 1.55%
> Amt. per capita: $11,820
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 1.75%

Alabama comes in second for the amount of spending per capita — $3,761 — on retirement and disability. The Cotton State also ranks seventh for procurement spending per capita, 78% of which was defense spending, and large parts of which also included the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture. Most of this procurement spending falls under the section of Department of Defense spending. Aside from Virginia and Kentucky, Alabama is the only state on this list that is in the bottom half of states for the amount of grant spending per capita. Grant spending encompasses a vast number of federal agencies and departments within each state.

 

6) Kentucky
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $12,129
> Population: 4,339,367
> Pct. of U.S. population: 1.41%
> Amt. per capita: $13,198
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 1.77%

The federal government gave Kentucky more than $7,000 per person on direct payments, which included retirement and disability benefits, unemployment benefits and student assistance — all large programs. Medicare benefits accounted for nearly 57% of such payments. This was  partially due to the high amount of government money going toward prescription drug coverage in the state — $5.46 billion in 2010. Kentucky received almost $1.5 billion more for prescription drug coverage than California, a state with almost nine times its population.

 

5) New Mexico
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $12,399
> Population: 2,059,179
> Pct. of U.S. population: 0.67%
> Amt. per capita: $13,578
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 0.87%

New Mexico received the third-highest procurement spending per capita in the U.S. at $3,641.68. A significant component of this spending was under the category of non-defense agency spending for the Department of Energy. New Mexico received more federal funding from the Department of Energy than any other state, with an amount of $4.8 billion. This is due to the three nuclear weapons facilities located within the state. New Mexico also ranks seventh for the grant expenditures it received per capita. More than 60% of these grants were from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some 22.53% of the population was on Medicaid — the fourth highest percentage in the nation — which is funded through this department.

 

4) Hawaii
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $13,709
> Population: 1,360,301
> Pct. of U.S. population: 0.44%
> Amt. per capita: $15,331
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 0.65%

The Hawaiian Islands have 11 military bases,contributing to the country’s highest per capita federal expenditure from the Department of Defense in 2010. Along with a large number of military personnel on the government payroll, Hawaii also had the highest federal salaries and wages. Some 77% of the salaries and wages paid are for active military personnel. The state had the 10th highest federal procurement spending per capita, at $2,017.80. Since 2006, federal expenditure on salaries and wages in Hawaii has more than doubled.

 

3) Maryland
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $13,723
> Population: 5,773,552
> Pct. of U.S. population: 1.87%
> Amt. per capita: $16,673
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 2.98%

Maryland had the fifth-highest federal spending per capita from the Defense Department — the state has 11 military bases. In addition, the state received more spending per capita in nonmilitary programs than any other. The state’s proximity to the capital is likely a major factor in this. The state received more than 5% of the total U.S. procurement expenditure, and ranked second in per capita procurement spending — $4,593.79 — nearly three times the national average. Of the 50 states, Maryland has the second-lowest percentage of people living below the poverty line.

 

2) Virginia
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $14,201
> Population: 8,001,024
> Pct. of U.S. population: 2.59%
> Amt. per capita: $17,008
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: 4.21%

Virginia received more than $136 billion in federal funds in 2010. This state received more than 12% of the total Department of Defense procurement spending — the second-highest proportion in the country, behind California. The state received the highest per capita procurement funding and the third-highest per capita federal expenditures for salaries and wages. The state’s proximity to the capital is a factor in the high government expenditures. Despite receiving the second-most federal funds per capita, Virginia was very low in terms of the grant funding it received.

 

1) Alaska ( the largest taker of taxpayer money of all)
> Amt. per capita net of income taxes: $15,197
> Population: 710,231
> Pct. of U.S. population: 0.23%
> Amt. per capita: $17,762
> Pct. of U.S. funds per person: .39%

That was posted by one person, and all of his tweets are about pro-Trump.  Very, very biased 'evidence.'

Loved his dance 

 

 

 

 

He even trolled all the haters with his dance song selection ... Fantastic!! :laugh: It was the PERFECT song... he only selects the best!

 

I loved how the black guy towards the end just kept singing over and over 

 

"Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew when I bit off more than I could chew, but through it all when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit out I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way"

Too bad what? It was still a great speech regardless of who wrote it. Plus it said "Most was written by them, so he might have wrote some of it too"

Apparently the Trump administration didn't like the Interior department tweeting about the low turn out, http://www.recordonline.com/zz/elections/20170121/interior-department-banned-from-twitter-after-retweet-about-small-trump-inauguration-crowd?rssfeed=true&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

You know that both those tweets can be true at the same time, right? He could have been writing his speech, and then decided to have Bannon and Stephen Miller help afterwards?

Possibly, but doubtful.  Most likely he provided his "thoughts" to the writers and that's it.

I can understand ... considering it is administered by the Sec of Int which is a cabinet of the POTUS.  Obviously Trump will not want his cabinet(s) to release any negative information about him (even if it is true).

Far be it from people to jump to conclusions :rolleyes:. People need to be okay with the simple reality that they don't always have enough information to make such assumptions.

Excellent tactic, it must be fake because we deem the pen to be a sharpie in the same manner that people deemed the pen in the photos of Hillary to be an epipen :rolleyes:.

To jump to conclusions? I think that's on yourself and not Trump. I'll give Trump the same chance I gave Obama on his first term. I won't fish for reasons to hate him or criticize him at every turn.

Sorry meant that Trump is to easy to criticize because he contradicts himself constantly and extremely thin skinned .  Obama didn't run his campaign on hate and blatant lies like Trump did so there was very little to criticize Obama on the same magnitude as Trump.

 

Don't get me wrong I'm willing to give Trump a chance but I will not stop calling out his BS and blatant lies.
