These states receive a large percent of income from programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, above the national average (16.7%). States who receive the most help from federal programs often are the most likely to elect conservative representatives who favor cutting programs. The five states receiving the most federal money were won by Republican candidates in recent presidential elections.
