I'm not American, but it seems like the individual states have more control over their own development than most other countries, so you can actually see social experiments playing out from one state to the next. From the outside, it looks like some states do well and others don't. Maybe the states that aren't doing well in terms of standards of living should implement policies of the states that are doing well?
Nope we will just let the failed states like Kansas fend for themselves with their terrible ideas gone awry. Just look what Sam Brownback and the republican legislature did to the state. They cut taxes like crazy thinking they could usher in new business to make up for the tax shortfall. Well the new businesses never came (because it is Kansas) and they were left with huge deficits which they had to start cutting education like crazy. Eventually the only people that will be left in Kansas are a bunch of dumb rednecks. Kansas might as well be 3rd world country.
That tax cut plan sounds familiar doesn't it... We get to try it on a national level now. Can't wait till we hit 50 trillion in debt and the dollar becomes worthless since everyone will have wised up that we will never pay back our debt and will only continue to borrow more money.
The USA should be reducing its deficit during supposed "great" economic times yet we are increasing spending while hacking off the tax income. Can't wait till the economy comes to a screeching halt and you start seeing deficits twice as big as the years after 08 crash. So much for fiscal conservatism. I could try their plan myself but I'd rather not increase my spending while reducing my take home pay. I'm pretty sure I'd be screwed in a matter of months.
