HIGH-TAX STATES KEEP RAISING TAXES, DESPITE RESIDENTS' EXODUS: VARNEY

New Jersey, New York, Illinois, California and Connecticut. We've suggested, and shown, that a mass exodus is getting under way.

But those states just won't quit. There's a whole raft of new taxes still to come. Nasty little charges and fees that touch just about everyone. The Wall Street Journal calls them "nickel-and-diming Democrats."

...

For example, Connecticut’s Democratic governor, Ned Lamont, wants residents to pay the sales tax on car parking, hair cutting, over-the-counter drugs. Take your dog to the vet: pay the tax. Download a newspaper, or magazine: pay the tax. Store your boat, go camping: pay the tax. And, of course, there's the jihad against soda: Yes, there's a sugary drink tax. What's this all about? Paying government worker pensions!

Illinois has a crippling pension debt. Paying the state's retired workers consumes a quarter of the entire state budget. Their new governor, J.B. Pritzker, will start taxing plastic bags, marihuana and sports betting. Plus, as we have reported, they want to take money from 401ks. That’s private pension money, to help pay for retired government workers.

Once again you post your opinions as facts.

Sorry Charlie, your opinions are just that; opinions, not facts.

Where do you get all this fake news?

Since you do not have any facts - here is some data the shows California has

1) exodus of lower income people and influx of higher income people

2) exodus of less educated people and influx of more educated people

California has a large influx of immigrants from Asia and other places as an entry gate. All these immigrants do not want to stay in California for various reason such as cost of living. Therefore, many leave for other low cost of living states like Texas.
