A Good Idea

Let's send Bree Johnston of the Huffington Post over to New Orleans to draw fire while repairs are in progress.

It is true, Grover Norquist does want to "cut government in half in 25 years" but he is talking about the FEDERAL government. I don't want Washington deciding on funding for levees, school programs, local government services, etc. That's why we have state governments!

Bree can't seem to differentiate between the two, so I'm going to give her some help.

1) Federal government: Headquartered in Washington D.C., the federal government is established by the U.S. Constitution and is divided into the executive, legislative, and judicial branches.

2)State government: Under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, all governmental powers not granted to the United States Federal Government by the Constitution are reserved for the states.

Nowhere in the constitution does it say anything about health insurance, education, or engineering projects. So one would think that these things should fall under state juristiction, unless of course that person is as dumb as Bree Johnston.
