Social programs play a part in some of these states' deficits, yes.

But infrastructure wears down the higher the population and more
maintenance is needed.

Hundreds of snowplows and tons of salt are needed when there's
snowstorms in Chicago or NYC. In western states where there's miles
between farmhouses you either need to own your own plow or be ready to
hibernate.

Roads in highly populated areas get worn out much quicker. More
population means more parks, activity centers, schools and playgrounds
are needed. (Are those social programs too?)

You need more cops and with a little more training than Barney Fife.
You need more fire stations, and trucks with big ladders so that
apartment buildings and big skyscrapers can be reached.

Shall I go on?

ALL states are having deficit problems due to high unemployment and
thus a lack of tax revenues in the coffers. And I don't see why you
claim a conflict in regards to Republicans asking for the chance to
fix the problem. The Democrats certainly haven't come up with a way.

Your last sentence is correct.

As for the rest: I'm sure South Park has another Douche/Turd Sandwich
episode ready to roll in 2012.

But that doesn't happen.  Corporations take the corporate welfare and create
new jobs...overseas.  It should be a FELONY for a corporation to move an
American job overseas.  If we had passed a law saying that 20 years ago we
might still have a manufacturing base.

Of course a school official isn't going to come out and admit that.  Are you
really that stupid?

Churches are businesses.  They exist to make money.  They should start
taxing the *** out of churches.  It would help our financial crisis a lot.
