States' Rights Do Have a Price
From Homeland Stupidity - it seems States' Rights can be had, for a price:
So the only objection left now is paying for the federal government’s intrusion into states’ rights. How much are our states’ rights going for these days? There is no real consensus, but studies range from claiming that the increased federal funding more than pays for its requirements to Rep. Rubén Hinojosa’s (D-Texas) claim that there will be a $39 billion shortfall.
So the states will sell their rights for $39 billion. But will anything change?
