    Let's see if Rand Paul, the libertarian racist hero of the Tea Party, will support this.

    Paul Begala: It?s Time to Defund Kentucky - The Daily Beast

    ....

    McConnell says President Obama's new budget is "unserious" and "irresponsible" because it merely cuts projected deficits by $1.1 trillion....

    Fair enough. So here's my two-word response: Defund Kentucky. Cut it off the federal dole. Kentucky is a welfare state to begin with. The conservative Tax Foundation says the Bluegrass State received $1.51 back from Washington for every dollar it paid in federal taxes in 2005 (the most recent data I could find on the Tax Foundation's website.) We need to listen to the people of Kentucky. They don't want any more federal spending in their state—and they certainly must be appalled by the notion that they're a bunch of welfare queens, living off the taxes paid by blue states like California (which only gets 81 cents back on the dollar), Connecticut (69 cents), Illinois (75 cents) and New York (79 cents).

    How about defunding all states, balancing the budget and letting states tax and pay for what they need instead of sending it all to Washington and then fighting to see who gets what back.

    The feds should pay for DoD, interstate infrastructure and securing the border. That's about it, the states can do the rest themselves.
