    Despite their sharp criticisms of federal spending, Republican states are the most dependent on government funds, according to a new Wallet Hub report.

    Mississippi, a state mired in poverty and racism, takes about $3 in federal spending for every $1 dollar that state taxpayers contribute. The Magnolia State ties with New Mexico when it comes to dependency on government funds.

    South Carolina taxpayers contribute $1 per capita for every $7.87 in federal funds funneled to the state.

    The state with the lowest return on taxpayer investment is South Carolina. Its citizens pay $1 in taxes per capita for every $7.87 in federal funding received.
