"Cut federal money to states that don't need it"? Interesting concept. So the idea is to gather all the wealth at the federal level then give it back at federal discretion. How about we just cut taxes and allow failing concepts to fail. And "billgarrgetsit", ND produces a large portion of the food in this country, a large portion of the oil in this country, hosts a large portion of the nuclear capabilities of this country and does so in one of the harshest climates in the lower 48 and one of the lowest populations of the 50 states. So answer me this... if ND left the union and no longer took federal aid.. who would feel the affects more? ND OR USA?

Howzabout that "global warming" thing for ND today? Right about now would have been nice, huh?

Spring break + blizzard = kids + shovels + sleds + hot cocoa inside

Algebra at its finest

I'm feel I have to fear that our local café, the Free Lunch Counter Café, in Hillsboro, will not get our allotment of peas if the sequesteration continues....de-icing them is a problem in itself....maybe this global warming will help with that problem...

Don't give him needless ammo.

Just my take. Have a good evening.

"...we need actual cuts not just reduced increases."

This is correct. No more playing with the numbers.

"That is exactly where America is today and borrowing money is not the answer. Quit spending, cut up the credit cards, make HARD decisions and stick with them."

Common sense, billdoesnt.

The states I feel sorry for are those with NO extra funds in their budgets.

If President Obama had made those cuts 5 years ago, he might have a leg to stand on, but not now.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." - Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)

Holy crow, 200 million a month from gross oil revenues. Most of this is off school sections so it should be used to pay for the schools, all of them.

It's sad that $20 million dollars is equated with the term "minimal". I'm certain all those who lost their homes in the 2011 flood would appreciate a piece of the "minimal".
