On the other hand...

The following states paid the lowest average federal taxes per adult resident:

Mississippi
At $3,024, Mississippi's lowest per capita federal tax bill is less than half the national average of $6,151. This is largely a function of having the lowest per capita income in the nation.

West Virginia
The low average tax per adult of $3,208 is largely a function of having the nation's second-lowest per capita income, but also West Virginia has the lowest tax filing rate of any state in the union.

New Mexico
The average federal taxes paid by residents of New Mexico is $3,600 per year.

Arkansas
Adults in this state actually earn a little less than those in New Mexico, but at $3,677 they have a higher tax bill because, on average, they pay a slightly higher federal income tax rate (possibly because of how deductions and other tax breaks are utilized).

Kentucky
Kentucky has a higher percent of adults filing than Arkansas and a slightly higher income per capita, which contribute to a higher average tax bill for residents of Kentucky at $3,715.

Alabama
Though Alabama ranked 24th in the nation for its adult population of 3.7 million, its residents pay a fairly low $3,749 annually for federal taxes.

South Carolina
Still well below the average federal tax bill, the $3,897 amount residents of South Carolina pay each year is just 12.47% of their annual incomes.

Idaho
Among the states with the lowest adult population and adults filing returns, Idaho's average federal tax paid is only $3,900 per year.

Maine
At $4,084 per year, the tax burden Maine's 1.07 million residents shoulder is edging closer to the national average.

Louisiana
Ranking 25th for adult population and total tax, the federal taxes paid by residents of Louisiana is still low at $4,332 per year.

The Top 10 are all BLUE (with the exception of Wyoming) and the Bottom 10 are all RED.

How come all the states run by Republicans are so damn poor?

"Unacceptable" ~ Pelosi
twitter.com

Dreamers shafted by Obama, who failed to ensure them a permanent path to citizenship, and now left hanging by Pelosi & company.

Do Democrats care about them as much as they pretend to? or is their hatred of all that is Trump that strong?

Pretty incredible Trumps offer is a non-starter ....

From "When Whites Just Don't Get It" by Nicholas Kristof
www.nytimes.com
• The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.
• The black-white income gap is roughly 40 percent greater today than it was in 1967.
• A black boy born today in the United States has a life expectancy five years shorter than that of a white boy.
• Black students are significantly less likely to attend schools offering advanced math and science courses than white students. They are three times as likely to be suspended and expelled, setting them up for educational failure.
• Because of the catastrophic experiment in mass incarceration, black men in their 20s without a high school diploma are more likely to be incarcerated today than employed, according to a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research. Nearly 70 percent of middle-aged black men who never graduated from high school have been imprisoned.
