Compassionate conservatism displayed in it's purest form.

Nothing but petulant pettiness and disdain for the idea that government is supposed to serve the people who need help the most.

Secede and keep all the money.

Stop subsidizing a bunch of inbred idiots who produce nothing, hate everyone, and stand in the way of progress while worsening climate change.

Well, it sounds to me like states that typically pay can start withholding tax money from states that take. This will really hurt states like Kentucky, or Montana, or Idaho. I suggest doing this on a state level as well. They want services, tell them to pony up the taxes to pay for said services, no more paying for those lazy welfare queens living the rural life.

But his cult knows for a FACT that the red states pay the way for the country. Because conservatives are all about paying for what they get. And liberals are all about taking free stuff from the conservatives. So the blue states MUST take welfare from the hard working red states. They must. it has to be true.
Sigh. They really are being told this is true and they really do believe it. Hail Fox/Sinclair.

Imagine if all those red states had to pay all the costs for tornadoes, hurricanes and floods. Now imagine a democratic president refusing to pay those costs because those states are run by Republicans who just can't plan very well for things they know are coming.

The truth of the republican party is that they fleece hardworking people to give handouts to the rich. The trickery of the republican party is that they have managed to convince rural white folks that they deserve handouts too.

I see a lot of posts about how they should go on strike or not ship goods to the blue states because within a week they would be collapsing.

No, Bush was the purest form of compassionate conservatism. Weeping with the bereaved and bereft, but still pushing billions of dollars to corporations and oil buddies and making wars for their bottom lines to help Americans die for them.

In comparison, for "compassionate conservatism", Trump is a mere dilettante.

They wanted help for NY and NJ withheld after Sandy. I can't think of the NY and NJ delegations in congress trying to withhold aid for shiathole states during their own times of need. If they get CA and a couple of other states together it should be easy enough for NY to wait until tornado season or the next time the Mississippi overflows and teach those stupid aholes the meaning of good for the goose, good for the gander. Because the stupid trash thinks they are so smart because they don't defer to experts and have folksy wisdom, but clearly they aren't up to date on pithy folksy sayings.

I'm not trying to be funny here. But the answer they are told is because God is punishing the country over abortion and the gays, and the coloreds are stealing the rest via welfare handouts.

Many of them believe this. It's prosperity gospel compounded with racism at its core.

So, time to tell the red states they can keep their tax money and cut off federal funding? I mean, wouldn't want to infect them with any of that icky lib money. Might make them gay or something.

Texas would probably be ok, though it might not be long before Texas started thinking about how much better off they'd be if they dropped the rest of the red states.

As stated by others, California runs a surplus.  Also, it took a Republican governor to put Illinois in the debt position it's in today by cutting taxes and placing the burden of pension payments on future generations because all those tax cuts were supposed to generate so much extra trickle down money...somehow.   But of course nobody who points to Illinois as the poster child of debt knows about or wants to understand the Edgar Ramp.
