DC is the worst but for other reasons plus it doesn't get electoral votes
Detroit and Michigan? Chicago and Illinois? No California? Ohio and thier endless tank production for the military? This list is suspect for sure. How about Oshkosh Wisconsin still making trucks while the Army trys to reduce inventory by 24k vehicles.
Pork jobs need to count as moochers too
D.C. is seeing a new renaissance of wealth while the rest of America continues to deteriorate financially. This vast wealth, that is flowing into D.C., is a sign of the highest order of elitist apocrasy against the lower castes in America! A building boom is going on in D.C. and it's surroundings like Georgetown and other suburbs. This is at the expense of cities like Detroit, Chicago and Atlanta, just to name a few. Political elitists and the aids that they bring with them to Washington are thriving in a busted economy that in many ways resembles the decline of the Roman Empire!
Oops, not sure how you got those numbers turned, but in terms of the 10 year period 1999-2009, Virginia (sometimes D, sometimes R) had the biggest deficit between taxes collected and federal aid. Maryland was second (D). In absolute terms, California received more welfare than any other state -- nearly $4 trillion over 10 years. New York was second at $2.36 trillion. Interesting game you play with numbers. You should try learning statistics. You just failed.
You don't like interstate hiways? airports? Postal service? reserve units, military bases, Medicaid, medicare, elderly paid for by social security in nursing homes?
Money has been redistributed from the middle class to the rich for the last 30 years by Republican trickle down tax policy. That's is why they get 24% of the income now instead of the 9% they use to get.

See a pattern, top 20 moocher states are mostly red , if they want big cuts this is a great place to start.
California takes back nearly everything it gives in the form of welfare payments. In 2 more years, projected CA will take far more than it contributes. So past performance is no guarantee of future results. Unless liberals are ruining the show. Then you can count on #$%$-poor performance and bankruptcy while they argue about the "important" issues like gay marriage and anti-bullying and how Bush caused 9/11. But know this, they have finally lived long enough in their "utopian" cesspool to become a burden to the rest of us.
