Fmr. Gov. Chris Christie gave Fmr. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp a layup to point out an inconvenient truth for Republican states. They are welfare states.

Watch Politics Done Right TV here.

Republicans are so used to taking on the offensive even when the truth is embarrassing that it can catch them off guard. That happened to Chris Christie today. More people to be aware that the Red States are generally welfare states. In other words, they take more from the Federal Government than they put in. They love to preach about low taxes and the low cost of living in their states. But what happens is that most of America end up subsidizing them.

Democrats and Progressives must always be on the offensive to call them out. Put Republicans and Conservatives on the defensive about their opposition to Build Back Better. What do they want to deny the majority of their citizens?

The Blue States collect taxes to take care of their citizens. The Red States effectively are on the dole, and the wealthy and corporations are taking advantage of the subsidies from the rest of us.

That is why it was rich when Chris Christie claimed that repealing or modifying the tax code to reinstitute the claiming of certain state taxes as deductions on one's Federal Ubcine tax is so disingenuous. It should have been embarrassing for him to bring it up. But we know the Republican Party has lost its sense of shame.

"Yeah, but if you want to go there, Chris," Heidi said. "Yeah, and those people -- those people who pay those taxes in New Jersey subsidize southern states who get more federal assistance than -- than northern states."
