Wait, what? The right thinks if they reduce federal spending then we will climb out of all our problems and all the needs that these tax dollars were meeting will evaporate?
But will that not create unfunded mandates for the individual states to handle? All those services will still be in demand even though the federal govt has washed its hands of them. So where then does the funding come from to continue these? State tax increases? A tax is a tax no matter what name it has as the recipient- the bill comes due. At least I always thought so. So federal taxes drop and state taxes go up. This problem is solved then?
