However, in like manner, if the Federal government then wishes to withhold money from these entities that wish not to help the federal government enforce their laws, these entities ought not complain....goose and gander!

It's wonderful to hear a Liberal defend the Tenth Amendment. That's right up there with hen's teeth, a unicorn and a honest politician.

Do you feel the same way about cities that don't use their police to investigate and detain people for evading federal taxes? Why or why not?

Tell me where in the constitution the federal government is given the power to withhold funds to compel a voluntary act.

Only to a limited degree. The federal government cannot withhold all monies, only a limited percentage, and not in so much amount as to be coercive.

That power is implied in the execution of the laws that make this money available and distributed by the federal government.

....or these sanitary entities can take their complaints too court. That ought to be fun for them.
