Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A bizarre viewpoint, but no surprise given the perspective.

Why bizarre? Because the cities he mentions are all surrounded by the richest zip codes in America, the place from which most of the wealth is generated. The northeast. The states he's pointing to are all net contributors to the tax burden, whereas the states with cities in better shape (newer cities) are all still drawing more in tax money than they contribute.
