    They oppose helping other people.  Rick Perry complains loudly when he or his friends do not get government handouts, only when people he does not like get handouts.  Look at his reaction when he did not get the federal money to pay for the wildfires fighting his policies created.

    Unlike Texas, however, which contributes funds to the federal budget many of these are simply takers.  Each person in Iowa receives nearly $1000 in welfare, on average.  Each person in South and North Dakota receives between $4,000 and $5,000 in welfare from the feds.

    No, these people have no problem taking.  What they have a problem with is realizing how much they take, and being grateful to states like NY, TX, AR, and Ca for being generous enough to allow them to exist.
