NO, he is not passing the buck. I do not think you are old enough to remember this.
He is giving the buck back to the states, the fed government took the buck from the states years ago without the peoples and states approval.
No, I'm not old enough, and neither are you, I seriously doubt that you are over 150 years old and remember before the civil war.
Ron is putting things back into the states hands where it needs to be and as it was when things were running smoothly.
When was this? Like 1792? I mean seriously?
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. Now while a balanced approach with a gradual cut down in federal spending with slight increases in state spending would work. Paul just wants to dump the problems with the Federal government onto the states and call it solved. That's not solved, that's passing the buck. The states still will have to deal with those same issues, and they will have to deal with those issues with huge tax increases which will make the TEA Party freak out on the state level and start screaming that the states should get out of their lives and leave it to the county level. and so on and so forth till they are screaming at their husbands and wives to stay out of their personal affairs as they lock themselves in a shed with a don't tread on me flag on the door.
(then they will demand that the rat in the shed show them it's long form birth certificate "squeak")
