As a taxpayer in IL I'm frankly insulted by the attitude of AK that they deserve that money. My state is equal to CA in getting less than we pay into the Fed in tax money, so honestly my taxes are subsidizing your state directly. Why should I pay for that? Why should CA be almost half owned by the Fed also and have to pay for your state?
