    This is hardly new. The Feds have been holding highway money over the states heads since the beginning of the program.

    I would hope that the 1st time the fed's withheld one single $, the state would stop sending any $$$ to washington dc?
    That is a 2 way street? The fed's can only spend what $$$ they receive, right?

    States can stop paying federal taxes, they can deny any increase in welfare and education spending... and after the lawsuit that shut down Obama's illegal alien plan the states have standing to say no, this is costing us to much money!
     
  16. While I agree with the idea 100%, the problem is that the 'States' don't send $$$ to Washington, DC. Federal money comes from us, either as individuals paying quarterly estimated taxes or as businesses paying estimated taxes and money withheld from employees paychecks. The States, as employers, also send income and FICA taxes withheld from employee paychecks to the Feds but I think that's about it. For the most part I don't think states collect taxes for the Federal government.

    I could always go break out my text books for the people who like references, but they basically require employers to send the funds to the Fed and state directly. Neither revenue entity has a hand in the other's cookie jar, so to speak.

    So conservatives in those states stop sending the feds money. Bank it for awhile so you have it and tell them to stop or else. When half the country goes against them what are they going to do? try and drag everyone into tax court?
