Federal largess

Governors, even those who claim to be conservatives, don't want to jeopardize the federal funds sent to their states from Big Brother in Washington, D.C.
The states rely on billions in revenue from the Departments of Defense, Education, Energy and Transportation, National Park Service, NASA, Medicare, Medicaid,, etc.
If the states stand up to Big Brother, their funding can be reduced or eliminated.
Federal funding helps keep the states in line because the states are addicted to the handouts.
