The federal government has been using the threat of withholding funds from states to bribe and extort them to comply with Washington's point of view on a variety of topics for a long time now.
I seem to remember something along the lines of "no taxation without representation" from history class, but it's been a while.
The feds did this with the motorcycle helmet laws and they found it didn't work for long.

Just remember the other guy is always right and BIG BROTHER KNOWS BEST.
