nikki haley and mitch mcconnell don't think that the federal government should help individual statues avoid actual bankruptcy because hey freeloaders, freedom ain't free, or something. this despite, of course, mcconnell and haley's home states, kentucky and south carolina, being two of the most federally dependent states in the union.
