Putting US in the Red States

This interesting study shows how many Federal tax dollars are spent in each of the 50 states for every one dollar collected in Federal taxes.

I would like to superimpose this data on the Blue-Red State map and show everyone how the lazy tax-dodging wefare-mom states of the South are sucking real dollars out of the pockets of Republicans and Democrats alike who live in the Blue States. So much for Republican claims of "personal responsiblity." It seems this idea only applies to the working poor, and not beer-drinking, food-stamp using, lay-about NASCAR dads.

Interesting that Colorado, which is tending blue, is also getting off the federal teat. There does seem to be some causation here, not just correlation. Just don't know which direction the causation goes!
