Did you know that US Blue States support the Red States? According to The Associated Press, the world's oldest journalism cooperative, the Blue high-tax states have been funding the Red low-tax states for a long time in America.

The GOP's myth that red low-tax states are subsidizing blue high-tax states because of the deduction for state and local taxes is totally wrong.

An Associated Press Fact Check finds it’s actually the other way around. High-tax, traditionally Democratic states (blue), subsidize low-tax, traditionally Republican states (red) — in a big way.
