If we start enforcing the Constitution against the feds, won’t the feds just cut off federal funds to Texas?
Texas should not be dependent on funds from the federal government and the strings attached to them. It saps our will to act like the sovereign state that we are.
But each authorization of federal funding has its own conditions attached. To attach other conditions after appropriation would be a violation of the law appropriating the funds. If the feds did violate the law in that manner, it would make it even more clear how illegitimate the actions of the federal government are.
