""that the individual states should be more responsible for their citizens than the federal government? No one wants that.""

Really?

Most states select their own text books for schools. You think that Ms Obama would be a better person to select your kids books for indoctrination by the feds?

Most states issue their own drivers licenses and register cars.

Most states provide Medicaid and come up with the benefits that are included in the state Medicaid packages.

All states/localities collect taxes for the education of the kids. You think the feds would do a better job of it?

Most states maintain most of their roadways. You think the feds would be better at fixing potholes at 'highest prevailing local wages within 300 miles'?......

No thanks.. The fed government should get out of 90% of what it is doing these days.
