We're No. 3: Oklahoma High on Federal Spending Hypocrisy Scale

Yes, Sooner fans, it's true. Oklahoma's voters want it both ways—less federal spending but plenty of pork here in Soonerland.

The good folks at The Daily Beast have looked at the numbers and pronounced Oklahoma one of the most hypocritical states.

The numbers add up. Oklahoma gets lots of federal dollars (read: pork), but a good percentage of Sooner voters support the Tea Party, those people who oppose all sort of federal spending.

That would seem to be the very definition of hypocrisy. Read about it, and check out the full list, at this link: The Most Hypocritical States.
