It turns out that beggars really can be choosers after all!

Blue state progressives are finally starting to notice that the people living in states that just voted for massive deficit spending, starting illegal wars and giving huge tax cuts to the rich are also the people that are sucking up tax dollars faster than they put them in. The only question remaining is, why are we surprised?
