Firing Line Friday: Revenue Sharing

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     The centralized control, directly or indirectly via odorous mandates and requirements, of local programs and affairs by the Federal government by means of the Federal purse-strings has been a longstanding complaint by conservatives, though some on the right look at it as a useful cudgel they might use if they were ever to gain power. Let us look back when this very question of centralized diktat vs. not-as-unconservative block grant revenue sharing was raised by William F. Buckley, Jr. with Wilbur D. Mills, Richard Beer, Dick Polman, and Margaret Miljavic.

     Until next Friday.
