To preserve our federalism the national government must refrain from paying for the past and present fiscal mismanagement by state governments.
Just out: Greve’s twenty-minute diatribe (link no longer available) on why and how just about everything we think we know about federalism turns out to be wrong (“But What Kind of Federalism?” Heritage Insider.) It’s the printed, cleaned-up version of a speech I delivered at the Philadelphia Society and again this past month at Gary Gregg’s excellent McConnell Center in Louisville. Apologies if I’ve posted this before. This version though looks nicer. Plus, it has clever pictures of Uncle Sam handing out bags of money and other people throwing it around. State officials, I presume.
