These politicians with their cavalier attitude of bowing down to the federal government are giving up their own state sovereignty to claim every last penny of stimulus dollars. It is these types of politician which will create deeper in debt federal welfare states. Our politicians have forgotten that the states created the federal government as an agent for their selves. The stimulus dollars does not have strings attached, it has federal chains attached.
The Tenth Amendment provides that " The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. "
For too long, Americans have allowed their politicians to interpret and bend the rules of the Constitution, which these representatives have taken an oath to uphold the US Constitution and their State Constitution.
By denying the passage of these state sovereignty resolutions would demonstrate the disregards these representatives have to their oath and the people of these states.
Not passing such resolutions demonstrates the denying of the US Constitution and the State Constitutions and
these representatives who choose not to support this resolution could result in their replacement in the next elections.
