Federal Taxes Minus Spending

by

This map shows which states pay the most in taxes and which states receive the most between 1990-2009 as a percentage of 2009 GDP. Delaware paid in the most relatively at twice its 2009 GDP.  Mississippi, West Virginia, and New Mexico all received more than 200% of their GDP in payments from the federal government.
