    in those states already.  They get to treat their residents like dirt and then try and treat the rest of the country that same way without penalty, because the only penalty could come from the people of those states, some of which had not a single county go for Obama.

      On the money.

      Wages are so low that most folks there get federal benefits paid for by the rest of the country.  And wages will never go up because they have Right to Work (for less) Laws on the books.  If that's not bad enough, their kids won't be able to move up the virtually non-existant "ladder of opportunity" because tey don't get decent educations because there may be no state income tax to fund them or that the education funds are siphoned off to give tax breaks to corporations.

      For the most part, they end up as net tax receivers while states on the eastern seaboard are net tax payers.  It's an endless cycle of fail.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
