I just took the data in this table and added to it to create a table of spending by state as well as taxation. I also added a column for net contribution (tax revenue - spending). I put the resulting table in the article Federal spending and taxation across states so this should end the merger discussion. The table here is a bit out of date and should be updated, but my table also relates to the 2008 election so 2007 data is fine there. Jaywilson (talk) 09:29, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
I'm fine with setting up the merge, but I do have a few problems with the other article, but I will discuss those there. Best, epicAdam(talk) 15:18, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
