Michigan Ranks 38th in Federal Spending List


WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- Michigan continues to be a donor state when it comes to federal spending.  What it means is we send more money to Washington and get back less.  The national average for spending is about 11-thousand dollars per person on everything from Social Security to health and human services, to defense spending.

Michigan only gets back nine-thousand dollars.  Alaska gets back the most at about 20-thousand per person, and Nevada gets the least at about seven-thousand.  Michigan was 38th in the nation.  Illinois ranks even lower at 44th, and Minnesota comes in at 47th.
