Trump Tweet: He’s Unlikely to Burden Fiscally Responsible States With Bailing Out Profligate Spending Blue States

Profligate spending Blue states hoping to use the trillion dollar bailouts making their way through congress to alleviate their billion dollar debts would appear to be out of luck.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been pushing for the federal government to wipe out at least a portion of, if not all of, his state’s $10 Billion deficit.

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker, an outspoken critic of President Trump, wants his $6 Billion deficit paid for by the other 49 states… at least the other states that aren’t looking for a handout.  Pritzker also has another $137 Billion of unfunded pension liabilities to worry about.

Last week, Senate Majority Leader told Democrat governors looking to be bailed out for their unseemly largesse; “There’s not going to be any desire on the Republican side to bail out state pensions by borrowing money from future generations.”

This morning, President Trump confirmed his concern that states that ignored federal mandates and spent billions on sanctuary policies would now expect to have their burden shared, or absorbed by states that adhered to federal laws and responsible spending.

“Why should the people and taxpayers of America be bailing out poorly run states (like Illinois, as example) and cities, in all cases Democrat run and managed, when most of the other states are not looking for bailout help?” Trump asked on Twitter. “I am open to discussing anything, but just asking?”
