Give this a listen. It's a big wake up call for the schmucks on the Dems side of the aisle. And all of those few remaining republicans were the only representatives who brought any attention to the proposed tax increases and implementations. The people in this state are going to feel the pain, and they are going to not know what hit them. I'm just glad I have a very proactive representative, and I receive emails with updates weekly.

    My solution to this problem is simple...but would NEVER be implemented.

    First, no American citizen would have any direct tax responsibility to the federal government. Each state would pay a per capita tax to the feds. (This would eliminate the IRS, but that would only be a side benefit.) The states themselves would be powerful enough en masse to tell the feds that we don't want to pay for a subway system for Los Angeles, or whatever other idiotic ideas come from Washington. Each of us would have our tax responsibility to our state...and the states could do it with income tax, sales tax, whatever. This would put the states in competition with each other for us. People, and by extension money, would flow to the states that were most tax efficient and the big spenders would starve. You know...like it should be.

    The biggest problem with all those moves is that those people and companies bring the Blue Disease with them. The company moves because of high taxes, then they want gimme's from the state they are moving to. The people move with the company and then vote for the policies that they left in CT or wherever.

      This is a huge problem in Colorado. All the folks fleeing high taxes in California vote for bigger government here.

        Yeah, I know, I am from Denver and I moved to New Mexico back in 2004 for a better employment opportunity. To many Californicators for me. Pretty soon Cali will be part of Mexico because the only people left there will be undocumented (illegal) immigrants. I would like to keep San Diego though, I was stationed there and loved the place, just hate the politicians in charge.

    I checked and I was surprised to see Pennsylvania is a balanced State. We have one of the most expensive legislators in the country. Makes me realize how bad things must be in Connecticut.

      Did I mention that it sucks? If not, it sucks!
      And people wonder why there is an exodus of people from this state. Sure, it's beautiful, and has some great things about it. The governance of it, though, leaves one with a foul taste in the mouth. And an empty wallet.

        Perhaps they are deporting lower and middle class jobs. I have noticed a huge incline in discriminatory neighborhoods, schools, and churches, maybe the rich wanna buy a state too. If its beautiful and the rich run it, perhaps that is their angle. Here we have many neighborhoods divided by status. In Missouri. The higher status areas have better schools, better teachers, better buildings, etc. Higher taxes and tax brackets...

    Companies are moving to the South where I live.
    Hey, but I notice Alabama wasn't mentioned where I live specifically.
    Oh, yeah! My second term GOP governor has turned RINO and is trying to raise taxes here without reducing spending.
