Hey team; Is there some good evidence we can add to back this article. I've had some cranks trying to claim that the welfare paid to red states is going to locally-liberal districts. He had no evidence to back it, but I do think some evidence to the contrary would be helpful.

I know from IRS records that when it comes to overall federal taxes, blue states pay for red states. I'm not sure what the welfare stats are like tho.Super Saiyan Musashi (talk) 01:52, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

What, logically is the difference between welfare queens and 'politician's expenses claims'? 'The politicians get paid out of taxes and claim whatever they can.'

Whatever system is in place there will be people who use their ingenuity to exploit the system (rather than just 'maximising the positive aspects for them'). Anna Livia (talk) 16:13, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Can this article be less US centric?[edit]

As above. (talk) 12:30, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
