States don't get to pick and choose where federal tax monies are distributed and where they are not. That money is designated at the Congressional level for federal programs. Don't like it? Then stop accepting all federal funding and programs and become self reliant, able to balance your own budget without federal assistance. Can't do that because you've overextended too much for so long that you've come to count on federal funding and assistance as part of your state's budget and management? Too bad, so sad. You'll just have to pay the price of accepting those funds.
