Why couldn't states buck up the necessary funding? What? They don't have the money? Either does the federal government.
Its great to play on emotion, it really hits people, and you can call people uncaring that say anything other than we should help those people. But the reality is that we are 20 trillion in debt. Let states handle it. Let states raise taxes.
I mean I guess you could argue lets not increase military spending, and I'll agree with that, but that's probably going to happen.
Dealing with that reality and the potential cuts, why would states opt to eliminate these programs? They could keep them going if they choose to pay for them.
