Study: “Blue States Are Less Dependent On Federal Government Than Red States”

  • States run by Republicans are far more dependent upon the help of the federal government than their Democratic-run counterparts, based on the latest annual study from Wallethub.com. In ranking the 50 states, the financial website listed 11 red states among the 12 most dependent upon Washington D.C.
  • “Blue states are less dependent on federal government than red states,” the site observed, noting that in its 50-state ranking, red states ranked 20.68 in dependency to Washington DC, versus a much lower average ranking of 30.32 for blue states.
  • The findings directly contradict the talking points of right-wing politicians and commentators who continually claim that “Democrat-run states” are mismanaged and in need of financial bailouts. See Hannity, Sean.
