Basically, 36 states take more from the federal government than they spend. So in reality, a majority of the states are not paying for the other 75% of the people.

EDIT: Also, I think it's fun to point out that only 5 of those 14 states that pay more than they receive from the Federal Government are red states, and of the top 14 worst states, only 6 are blue states.
