So many appear to have no clue as to how the US Senate works or what the division of powers is in the Federal government, much less the actual fiscal condition of so many of the states, as well as the Federal government itself.
If this question seems unnecessarily rude or mean, I suggest you check out one of the following:
The Snowflake Scale;
The Don't-Get-Out-Enough Scale;
The Sub-Al Gore IQ Scale; or, if you've made it through to this point,
The I'm-NEVER-Going-to-Make-It!!! Scale.
