    I have many questions about this, including where will disaster relief funds come from? Or is it each man, woman, and child for themselves?

    My state taxes are much higher than federal, yet few services are available and the debt of the state, (IL) is untenable. Bankrupt now seems a good idea.

    I think you just defined the Republican mission statement.

    There are more than a Couple States with No Income Tax Already. They seem to do ok. Why does everything have to be your way or the high way man? They will make up for it in other ways. Sales, Tax, License Fees, Tickets, Etc etc. Plus the Draw of No state income Tax will bring a flood of new Residents to pay Sales tax, and New Businesses to hire and employ them.

    Are state governments trying to eliminate themselves?

    I believe that the states of Tennessee and Florida have no income tax.
    There are probably others.

    It's about being fiscally responsible, balancing the books, and controlling spending.

    Oklahoma takes money out of your check if you make more than $1000 a year, I would think you would support letting poor people pay lower taxes.

    Eric Cantor's 'callous' disaster-aid refusal
    The House majority leader says any relief money should be offset by spending cuts. Is he right — or is it cruel to talk accounting as a storm crashes in?

    Eric Cantor's 'callous' disaster-aid refusal - The Week

    I go with callous.

    Cantor's district was hit with first an earthquake and then a hurricane. It will be interesting what his opponent uses the next time Cantor runs for office.
