Florida's growing cancer of socialism can be removed by CA

Good Morning Jerry Brown,

You and the California Congressional Caucus are in the position to add $260 Billion per year to California¹s annual GDP, at no expense to California taxpayers, by doing another State a favor -- Florida.

All you and the California Congressional Caucus have to do is actively support Florida's request for "secession" and initiate and pass Congressional legislation that states that Federal facilities, which serve national interests, should be located in those States whose taxpayers pay for the support of those facilities.

Referencing USAspending.gov an OMB website, CNBC reported that California taxpayers are subsidizing 72% of Florida's annual GDP. (#1 subsidized State in US). According to CNBC, the US Federal government annually subsidizes the Sunshine State $30,318 per capita. When you multiple $30,318 times 19.1 million Floridians, you get the approximate annual cost of ObamaCare. You need to know, those subsidies come from California taxpayers and US-FED Debt, sans an ROI for California or America. Shouldn't US-FED Tax Monies be recycled in the tax-source States whenever possible?

Florida should really appreciate California taking appropriate action. The presence of military bases in Florida forces Floridians to participate in a political activity which is against the political Principles of Floridians.

Taking California taxpayers' dollars to subsidize Florida's GDP is applied SOCIALISM.

Most of Florida's 21 military base activities could be relocated -- to California. An independent State of Florida would then be free to reimburse the US-FED for services that primarily benefit the host State (i.e., US-FED Resources Regulation, Grants and Coast Guard). Florida would be free of SOCIALISM.
