I hate misleading graphs and infographics.
Just had to see a bunch of people go “lol Virgina is a welfare state” thanks to a graphic that shows VA as receiving the most federal funding out of any other state.
Yea, dipshits, there’s a reason for that. It’s the Pentagon, Norfolk Naval Yard, the CIA, the U.S. Marine Corps, the NCIS, the NGA, and countless other federal agencies that are headquartered there.
That huge funding dump is basically the federal government paying itself.
