… and that is not a healthy state of affairs.
Dependence on federal money requires “obedience to Caesar,” and that automatically carries with it an implicit loss of freedom … and exposure to financial crises.
It’s Happy Hour, and Uncle Sam Is Pouring – WSJ Apr 11-12, 2015
“Today, about $2.4 billion – more than a third of the state’s [Idaho] budget – comes from the federal government. Federal dollars support programs for the elderly and healthcare such as Medicaid. Federal dollars are used to run transportation and environmental-protection programs. Federal money is used to hunt down child predators on the Internet and subsidize elementary and high-school breakfast and lunch programs.
Idaho is hardly alone in its reliance on federal cash. According to the non-partisan research organization State Budget Solutions, Mississippi is the country’s most federally dependent state, receiving almost 43% of its budget from the national treasury.
Louisiana, Tennessee, South Dakota, Missouri, Montana, Georgia, New Mexico, Alabama and Main round out the top 10.”
There is a comprehensive economic revitalization plan that will fix this unhealthy dependence.
The Leviticus 25 Plan restores financial health to American families through direct access to liquidity – the same access that was granted to Wall Street’s financial sector, foreign banks, and other fiduciary interests during the financial crisis of 2008-09.
Participating families in the Leviticus 25 Plan will be able to purchase their own school lunches.
Families enrolled in Medicaid will have the immediate resources to pay with cash for the first $4,000 in claims over the course of a year for each family member’s healthcare needs. The same would hold true for enrollees in Medicare, TRICARE, VA, and FEHB.
The Leviticus 25 Plan would generate massive tax revenues, providing states with more than adequate budgetary resources to fund many of the special circumstance programs that the federal government has initiated.
There is one plan in America that restores economic liberty and civil freedoms, provides for massive debt reduction and financial security at the family level, and generates legitimate economic growth and significant government budget surpluses.
