As President-elect Trump sorts through his priorities for his first 100 days he should deliberately set out to make the 10th Amendment great again.
Good governance requires a framework rooted in first principles.
To both counter allegations that he has authoritarian impulses and to unleash the populace’s creative energies lying fallow, Trump should re-establish American federalism and devolve power away from the federal government.
Ending the federal government’s perverse inducements to the states to expand Medicaid under Obamacare; and
Creating block grants from the Department of Education to fund state scholarships that give poor kids a chance to go to better schools?
I suspect the nation’s 33 Republican governors and perhaps even some of the Democrats would welcome greater sovereignty over their affairs.
If Trump governs as neo-Federalist he will, indeed, be making America great again.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/295762256″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
