Re: Louisiana petitions Obama for secession.

Here's yet another iteration on the theme of "red states take more Federal dollars than they contribute."

North Carolina (which I certainly didn't single out, after all, it was a hair's-bredth swing state and I'm well aware of the economic clout of Research Triangle) is not the worst offender but it still takes more Federal money than it contributes, at least as of this MJ story. There are a lot of other maps like this, all making the same correlation between Republican states and Federal largesse, which bodes very poorly for any secession plans.
