I find this just terrifying. If state revenue is now channeled through the federal government–who may attach what strings it likes–just what is the point of a federalist system of government in the first place? Will state lines soon be nothing more than a convenient way of describing one’s geo-coordinates, a quaint historical quirk in a neo-nationalist megastate?
