Swinging the pendulum to the extreme other angle isn't a solution, it's just shoving the problem to the states. States that by the way are having a
hard enough time solving their own budget problems.
Part of the problem is all the BS things the feds force the states to do that does not have a significant bearing on the state. It is kinda like
forcing a state to spend money on tornado preparedness, in a state that does not have tornados.
Once the feds get out of the states business and let the states run their business in such a way that suits the citizens instead of the feds, they
will be able to balance their books. The reason the states cannot balance their books is because the feds will not get out the states business. The
effect of doing this will force people to start once again taking responsibility upon their selves. Especially on entitlements, it will put the states
in a position to tighten the rules and eventually weed out the ones that are milking the system and put the able bodies that are capable of working
but too lazy to do so back to work. Or they will starve, or at least should starve.
There will be a paradigm shift here when/if it happens. Those people that are responsible for their own actions will not be affected by this. Hence,
the people that are lazy and think the world owes them something will be in a world of hurt, but, that is what freedom is. Those that are getting
entitlements that are capable of working but are too lazy, yeah, those people will be in a world of hurt until they decide to get off their ass.
I wonder, what group do you belong too. The self-reliant folks or the ones that thinks the world owes them something.
BTW: I am old enough to see the before and after effects of the DOE and several other things that the individual states used to take care of them self
before the feds decided they knew what was best for us.
