Once the state gets into the habit of balancing its budget using Federal $$, it won't go back. This will essentially extend the ability to print money, and the exemption from balanced budgets, from the Federal to State levels, effectively starting the process of nationalizing the states.

Concepts which only six months ago were big foundations of our Republic seem increasingly quaint, don't they?
