The billions in stimulus funds flow mostly to Obama areas

As reported in USA Today, most of the stimulus funds are going to localities that voted for Obama and his crowd. The imbalance is so huge that most observers think it couldn’t be guided by politics – even the One isn’t that powerful, yet. But the lesson I take from this is even scarier: we’ve reached the tipping point, where the have-nots get to vote to tax the haves and reap all the benefits. Why care about taxes when it’s someone else paying them? As non-taxpaying voters assume the majority, there will be no stopping the looting until they’ve stripped their betters bare. Then, they’ll turn on themselves, which will be even uglier. Cos Cob Congressman voted for the Stimulus bill and supports it today, God knows why.

    Quoted from the linked story:
    “The reports show the 872 counties that supported Obama received about $69 per person, on average. The 2,234 that supported McCain received about $34.”

    Granted, the story also reports that there’s been, at least, some discrepancy in spending in these areas since 2005, but that figure is simply astounding.

    872 counties supported Obama, 2,234 counties supported McCain. ~28% of the total reported counties voted to elected our new president, that’s amazing. (Alaska was left out but I don’t think that would swing too many more counties to Obama’s side.)
