@madest: Actually, according to that study - Democratic states rank as follows in welfare usage:

#1 - California
#2 - Maine
#4 - Massachusetts
#5 - Vermont
#6 - DC
#7 - New York
#8 - Minnesota
#9 - Washington
#10 - New Mexico
#11 - Indiana
#12 - Rhode Island
#13 - Michigan
#14 - Pennsylvania
#15 - Oregon

In fact, the only Republican-leaning state on the list is #3 - Tennessee.

@madest: You should go back and read my previous post again; I agreed with you about Republican states (so no worries - you don't need to look that one up).

However, at first glance, your "facts" appear to be wrong. According to CNBC,

California is the Leading Welfare Recipient... Democratic states - can`t live with `em... well that`s about it.

As for the NPR study, "The survey research team included Mollyann Brodie, Ph.D., Liz Hamel, Bianca DiJulio, Sarah Cho, and Theresa Boston
from the Kaiser Family Foundation; and Joe Neel, Vickie Walton, Steve Drummond, Uri Berliner and Anne Gudenkauf from NPR." Two seperate organizations had teams working on this - I consider that peer-reviewed.

Still waiting on your response for the other listed topics.

I don't need to do any work for you. I`m stating fact. If you don`t believe that Mississippi is the leading welfare state look it up. If you don`t believe they are solidly republican look up their voting history. I don`t work for you and I don`t Google my statements for peer reviewed studies that support my views (an NPR poll is not a peer reviwed study btw but I guess that little nugget didn`t resonate). I`m a reader. I read newspapers everyday, it`s an addiction and it`s wrong because trees die to provide me with news. How liberal is that?

@madest: Before I look anything up, I think you should look up the definition of proof and the definition of evidence. I have consistently submitted my articles as evidence.

You, on the other hand, have declared quite a bit of evidence to be proof... Perhaps you only consider it proof if it is in your favor? You should read into Confirmation Bias while you're looking up the definitions above.

Also, there is a very strong difference between STATES and INDIVIDUALS. Yes, there is evidence that Republican STATES use more entitlement money. However, there is just as much EVIDENCE that Democratic INDIVIDUALS use more entitlement money.

Still waiting on your response for the other listed topics.

Peer reviewed proof? Come on you provided a poll. Mississippi is one of the leading welfare states in the nation and it's solidly republican. Same could be said for Alabama, Arizona, Tennessee, Florida. When you`re looking up the word accident look up peer review.
