every dollar spent by our esteemed government during fiscal year 2011,
more than 43 cents was supplied by federal monies, State Treasurer Ken
Miller told Oklahoma Watch.
He also noted that states controlled by
Democrats relied less on government aid than Republican governors and
legislatures. The word he used to describe the unexpected results was
Oklahoma ranked No. 7. Mississippi topped the chart with almost 53 cents of every dollar coming from federal coffers. In the least dependent state, Connecticut, less than 10 cents of every dollar was provided by the national government.
