The US only does this when they refuse to cooperate with us constitutional law, even then it is generally applied to funding in that regard, Law enforcement for law funds. NOT all FUNDS/RIGHTS.

Bullshit. Why do you think the drinking age in every state is 21? It's because otherwise the states don't suck off the tit of the federal highway funds. There are numerous examples like that. The only differences between states are the colors of drivers licenses. I think states should be outspending the feds, not the other way around. Vote for federalism please, you faggots.

No, the federal government attaches strings to each and every grant it gives to states/school districts/localities. If they break the rules, they lose the money. There's no restrictions on what those rules can be.

They also impose rules like "You must have an interstate, but you'll be the one that has to pay for it." "Would you like some money back for the maintenance of that interstate? Well we'll grant you some money if you follow these rules." That's how they got Wyoming to up the drinking age.

They did it to WV for letting 18 year olds drink.
