Federalism is defined as shared government between a central government and regional units of government. Essentially, federalism is about the balance of power between the federal government and the states. When we consider issues such as the environment, health care, education, welfare, immigration, unemployment, housing, marriage definitions, etc., the debate centers around whether those responsibilities should be primarily handled by the state governments or the federal government or neither.
