All Depressions are Local

The Republican could not be more wrong, which for Republican is really saying something, in their insistance that aid to the States be cut. The battlefield of a recession or depression happens at the state and local level. It is the states that administer the programs that help people. The federal government might kick in a lot of money but it is the states that have the organisational infastructure to administer relief. Anyone who is in a desperate place will turn to their state for aid not the federal government.
