Information from Pew makes clear, as shown in more detail in the pretty picture at top, that sequester wounds are, in general, going to hit red states hardest. True, a couple of red states, Wyoming and Kansas, are on the light end, and a few are in the middle, but many will get dinged.

Take Texas. It's loss of federal grants will be 8 percent, Pew says, compared to a national average of 6.6 percent.

Here's the details for Texas.

Update: John Cornyn is doubling down on teh stupid here in Texas.
