By Rosane Lindsay,

States are supposed to be autonomous and independent from federal government requirements. They must be separate to be able to truly represent the people of the State. The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution states:

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

But that is not how it works in the real world. States give up autonomy to rule themselves when they accept federal money as “grants” that come with strings attached. A conflict of interest.

The federal government doles out about $700 million (17%) of its budget to states and cities each year which equates to 25% of state government revenues. In 2017, 65% of federal funds were dedicated to Healthcare.

According to the Tax Policy Center, “today, federal grants for health programs, predominantly Medicaid, represent 65 percent of total federal grant outlays, compared with less than 20 percent in 1980.”

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
