12. The entire South receives more in federal spending than they pay in...
...with no major industrial or financial centers to show for it.

Should we just brush them off as well? At least Detroit used to be a productive region before the federal tax code for corporations sold its citizens out.

Also, what's the point of decrying federal spending in Detroit when you don't even know if it occurs and what it covers?
