Early on this board someone claimed it was a myth that Blue States support Red States. This AP fact check explains quite clearly how it is NOT a myth.
However, the true economy of this country is an interstate endeavor. Interstate commerce is necessary for ALL states to be successful. There are things grown, created, built in Red States that are used more in Blue States. There are services in Blue States that Red States count on for stability.
Mitch McConnell even suggesting that Blue states don’t ‘deserve’ benefits of stimulus funds just continues the divisive nature of the GOP and the President. Divide and conquer? That’s great in war. Not so great when the entire country is suffering under this pandemic, both economically and health wise.
The real myth is that there is a difference between the states economically. We ALL need each other to be successful and prosper. We should not be battling over who pays what and who TAKES what. We are all in this together.
