State and federal governments are, through mandatory entitlements, tax incentives, and spending programs, the largest single investors in cities and metropolitan areas, their infrastructure, their residents particularly disadvantaged residentsand their leading-edge institutions.

      By returning Republican majorities in both Houses of Congress, the American people apparently chose the new premises of the Contract and endorsed fiscal federalism. Beyond that, however, it now seems unlikely that such choices will be made before the elections of November ; the structure of current programs will remain in place by default. Leaders and Laggards in State Coverage Expansions The states have several federal mechanisms at their disposal to extend insurance coverage of low-income populations. Federalism Example in Division of Powers A classic example of federalism at the Supreme Court level occurred inwhen outgoing President John Adams signed a commission for William Marbury to become a justice of the peace, but the newly minted Secretary of State — James Madison — declined to deliver it.

      Once some states developed new programs and methods of providing services, did others implement those changes? Those who argue for a stronger federal role believe it is the responsibility of the national government to "promote the general welfare. The original purpose of the RAND conference was thus to assist the states upon which the new fiscal federalism would place so many new responsibilities and opportunities. Fiscal federalism is the central focus of the Contract with America, the legislative agenda set forth by the Republican majority in the House of Representatives of the th Congress. Despite the large federal role, nursing home quality has remained problematic. Colorado, Washington, and Maryland have been in the forefront of developing payment methodologies that protect plans from the financial risk of enrolling a large number of sick and disabled beneficiaries, and thereby encourage more appropriate care for these vulnerable populations.

Davidoff, Amy, A. When economic times are good and state budgets are flush with cash, this system works to some degree.
