Recent census data indicate New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island led the nation in population migrating from their states to states that have a more friendly tax climate.
Liberals who claim taxes don’t matter should take note of this fact. If our nation and some states continue on this path of fewer taxpayers paying more taxes we will be progressing toward a place where no one wants to be.
It seems that the voting majority wants things and they expect someone else to pay for these wants. National health care is a good example of this. We want health care that someone else pays for. It seems our legislators’ utmost concern is re-election and they support what the voting majority wants.
You can see how this all ends by watching some European countries work their way through this predicament.
Raising taxes on a few doesn’t solve our problem. Unless we get our government’s spending under control we can’t ensure our country’s solvency. Currently it seems our government is fiddling while Rome is burning. Perhaps we need some new fiddlers and a audience that comprehends fire prevention.
