they could just a easily raise taxes and pay welfare benefits

Yes, that works until your jurisdiction becomes a magnet due to the welfare benefits, and then you're stuck with increasing tax rates to pay for the benefits. Local balkanized distribution of welfare is the worst thing possible, and if we're going to implement a strong welfare state it needs to be done at the national level so we don't have states dumping their poor and sick citizens on states that have decided to care for their citizens.
