A RELATIVELY poorly understood phenomenon in America is that rich, dense states tend to contribute much more in federal taxes than they get back in federal spending and tend to vote Democratic, while poor, rural states lean heavily Republican and are net recipients of federal largesse. This leads to situations where states that absorb huge amount of government aid (particularly for agriculture) are hotbeds of Tea Party activity, where voters decry the heavy boot of the federal government on their backs.
