Given the figures above it should be clear the Republican policies generate neither greater per capita nor median household wealth. Politicians and pundits lie. Numbers never do.

Seems the people in the states with the least are counting on Trump the most by voting for him. These folks are likely to find themselves greatly disappointed being they're the ones most affected by his cuts and future benefit reductions.

Couple that with Missouri, Montana, Nebraska and several other Midwestern states who also voted for him being the most impacted by Trump's tariff games.
