The extent to which the average American's tax burden varies based on his or her state of residence represents a significant point of differentiation among state economies. But it's only one piece of the puzzle.

Comcast Corp., Microsoft, Koch Companies Public Sector, the National Retail Federation, Health Care Service Corp., the American Petroleum Institute, Chevron and AT&T are among the companies, associations and lobbying powerhouses that funded a limited liability company called "Friends of the House 2016 LLC," according to bank records.
