"We're the Feds and "We're Here to Help: The Trojan Horse of Federal Assistance" Room 408

As the Supreme Court regognized in its ObamaCare decision, federal conditional assistance programs can be severely coercive of state governments, limiting the flexibility that state legislators have in responding to constituents' preferences. The primary impact is felt in health care, education, and the overall state budget. This PO will introduce legislators to the problems that the Texas legislature faces from conditional federal grants, what could be accomplished if we didn't face those constraints, and what we could do to escape the federal straight-jacket.
