Political Solution to Satisfy Progressives and Conservatives; Socialists and Libertarians
Let each state raise taxes on their people whether in a progressive manner or a flat tax manner. By doing so, they can implement free health care, education, social security, implement regulations of how certain businesses run in their state, more money for their own cities. Keep in mind that the population in one State is equal or more than most countries in the world. If Sweden can do it, so can the State of NY.
Decrease federal taxes so that the revenue generated won't be used to serve the priorities and interests of big banks and corporations. In other words, shrink the temptation for corporations to get their hands on the most powerful empire in the world and the 3 trillion dollar budget (of our money).
The jurisdictions of the federal government should be shrunk down to oversee only programs that need a bigger reach that states can't do themsevles such as Global Warming or U.S. Defense.
And if you don't agree with your State policies, then move.
