    Most red states are already 'Receiver' states, in terms of federal benefits received versus federal taxes paid.

    Their ideas of Freedom, which they tout endlessly includes unnecessary suffering and risk, higher rates of poverty and personal freedoms (reproduction, health access, voting while minority) curtailed to serve Theocons.

    Those governors, senators and state officials did not get into office by gunpoint. They were elected by the state after running campaigns that boasted right wing cred.

      Under ACA, federal taxes will increase for all states, to pay for it. The red states that refuse the Medicaid expansion will become less 'Receivers'.
