Sorry smoothsailing. I know that...just feeling frustrated.
I know, it’s a lousy mess. Be well, stay safe. :)
Perhaps we should propose to have independent Congressional
districts be their own self government.
I wonder if an innovative Congressman could do it for their own CD.
They would balance their own federal budget. The taxes taken from
by the constituents would have to balance the benefits to their district
plus essential federal services.
They would then have to start with 1) National defense
2) Security agencies
3) White Hut, House and Senate, DOJ
We should make a spreadsheet of each CD.
Nancy Pelosi probably gets the most cash benefits and pork to her district.
It would probably be impossible because we would have to track every
federal agency and program and track to each CD.
I wonder if any one has done it???
The stimulus web site was a disaster.
I think this would show clearly that every majority nonnative legal and
illegal district would have Sec. 8, Food stamps. Medicaid.
But we also need the mortgage interest deduction, the Tuition tax credits
and more higher income subsidies that people take advantage of
like 401k and health insurance subsdidy.
