Blue states should withhold federal payments

Trump and McConnel are idiots.

They will end up broadcasting what we’ve been saying for decades. The red states are moochers!

1. those "federal payments" are mostly individual and corporate federal tax payments

not so easy to just say individuals and businesses in blue states shouldn't pay federal taxes.

3. Red states do not have State Income Taxes and very LOW property taxes.....

But they Sales Tax you to death on EVERYTHING, except Medications. That still does not bring in enough revenues to run their state and local governments.

Ever wonder why Snow Birds head south?

4. Many also have mineral severance taxes

If you look at total per capita taxation by state, the results may be surprising.

FYI, CA is the only significant oil producer WITHOUT an oil extraction tax.

Before they became an insignificant cult, CA republicans were successful in blocking all efforts to enact such a tax.

5. Im one of us , living in the bible belt,

and I would like to respectfully disagree, for the reasons that follow.

Firstly,,we are the United States of America, we already had our civil war. If you are saying another is well, I will return with that the next one will be of OrangePrez doings. And we cannot let him have that victory.

Secondly, financially, I have the exact same argument and Dems, as we are should look at the whole country and not just numbers. Or we just fell into his Drumpness trap and we are just like him.

And finally, I served and love my country and I love being a Dem, since I was 18 (shhhhh, 60 now) the Thugs think about winning and power, we just think about our country, as a whole. No balance sheets, no keeping track. When you are the one who wants to keep score,,you normally lose. In Politics,in marriages(I have learned) and basically in life.

I do not see a reason to look at the scoreboard in this situation,, we got this. I believe it.

6. They can't: they don't have any access to federal tax monies. Businesses and other entities..

must remit their federal taxation obligations, including employee payroll withholdings, directly to the various tax agencies.

7. A better option is to organize, educate, vote, and turn those Red States Blue.
