Putting Federal funding pressure on a state to get it to follow federal law isn't new.


How soon we forget.

www.nytimes.com...

Read the above article



Not forgetting anything but Carolina lost a whole lot of revenue because of that bill. California is one of the largest economies in the world - 13% of our country's GDP. If they're refunded, I expect they'd stop paying federal taxes. That would be a net improvement for California revenue wise.

I'd be curious who would hurt worse. The fed if Cali cut off all federal payments - or Cali if the fed cut off funding.

Lol. Just in time to watch them secede. Do you know what happens if you remove Cali and Texas from the US? It becomes a dirt poor, third world nation within a generation. So, go ahead and defund. Lmfao.

Yeah yeah yeah...Defund us and see what happens.... You "may" not do a gawd damn thing.

My vote is to defund Cancerfornia, restrict travel outside the state (or we can build a wall) and end any and every form of federal aid, assistance, etc. Considering you own what....30% of all welfare?...we will see how long that lasts.

But I support you! Go away...die and once the liberals are all gone, we will just plow off the scum and utilize the land.

I support you 100% percent, just show me where you need my signature

How is California going to skip out on paying their taxes? If the IRS would come crashing down on me if I didn't pay my paltry taxes every year, I can't imagine the repercussions of losing 13% of its revenue. Well, yeah I can; it'd be the same thing I guess. Bank levies, frozen accounts, asset seizures, arrests, jail time. Harboring illegals is one thing. Withholding taxes is quite another!
