    by , 12-26-13 at 04:47 AM
    Here is an interesting idea I have been thinking about. Giving more powers back to the States with federal minimum standards and oversight.

Give complete financial responsibility with no federal help to the following programs, Education(to include libraries), roads(to include interstates),welfare(to include WIC, food stamps and corporate subsidies), healthcare(to include medicare) Social Security. Allow states to determine funding ...
