    Re: Where Should We Cut Spending

    I think the federal government should delegate alot of responsibilities back to the states. No more offering the states the carrot stick of funding from the federal government, for what are mostly state-run programs. If a state cannot afford something, why should the rest of the country fund that?

    Again, please be patient as I get the poll options filled in, I am still a slow typist.

    Some states already have more liberal rules regarding welfare and other social services.
    Wasn't California the preferred spot to be if you wanted to live on welfare?
    Maybe that is a major part of why that state is in such dire straits now...
