Another Appeal from the States

Buckley Jr., WM. F.
February 1976
National Review;2/6/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p110
This article focuses on the call of the governors of New York state, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin for the federalization of welfare in February 1976. The arguments raised by the governors of the states are discussed. They stated that voters reject expenditures for public works projects. They also state that the absence of political retribution against local officials when the federal government does the taxing has an impact on public welfare. Hence, the article differentiates the views of the Democratic and Republicans on the issue.
