State vs Federal Power

According to Mike Pence.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, a Republican some believe may throw his hat in the ring for president in 2016, addressed the NRA convention in Indianapolis. This bit about federalism certainly stood out: “Washington is not only broke, it’s broken. The cure for what ails this country will come more from our state capitals than it ever will from our national capital. Despite what some may think in Washington, our state governments are not territorial outposts of the national government. The states are the wellspring of the American experiment. It will not be enough to cut federal spending; the next generation of leaders must permanently reduce the size and scope of the federal government by returning to the states the rights, resources and responsibilities that are rightfully theirs.” Can we get a Tenth Amendment amen?
