[quote:Anonymous Coward 695091:MV84MDkzNDdfMTI0ODc4NThfNzA0QTY0RjI=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 694831] Well, it's true, CA only gets back 75 cents for each dollar in taxes it sends the Feds. However, I think it would have trouble anyway, even with all those extra quarters. I'd be very surprised if it got that much. Plus, your including non-productive federal outlays to defense contractors. [/quote] Those defense a lot of state taxes I know I work in that field. [/quote]
Why don't we ever hear about California seceding from the U.S. (Federal Government)? All we ever hear is, will Obama, through his grace and compassion, approve a bailout for California.
That is, will the Feds be kind enough to loan or grant California some fraction of the $100 or billion a year Californians render as tribute to the IRS each year. What do the people of California get in return for their billions in federal taxes (plus the trillions borrowed by the feds in their name)?
If it seceded, California would instantly solve it's budget problems. The question would then be, how to solve it's massive budget surpluses? It would instantly become one of the most prosperous nations on Earth!
Does Cali need the Fed? Or the other way around?
Should California secede????
