The Utah Model for the Federal Government?

The leaders of the Utah State Senate have penned an interesting proposal to the folks at the Washington Post. They propose having Utah taking care of its own entitlements-- and having the state keep its tax money.

We don't believe that 535 members of Congress and the president can educate our children, provide health care, pave our roads and protect our environment as well as the nation's 8,000 state legislators and tens of thousands of local officials.

So please, let us help. Let's select a few programs -- say, education, transportation and Medicaid -- that are managed mostly by Utah's government, but with significant federal dollars and a plethora of onerous federal interventions and regulations.
