New York Governor Cuomo on his state's $2 billion budget shortfall: β€œI don’t believe raising taxes on the rich. That would be the worst thing to do. You would just expand the shortfall. God forbid if the rich leave.” isn't that what Republicans say?

What's the tab for his sanctuary and healthcare for illegals policies?

Good question, and hard to answer. It will keep growing as the state becomes a magnet for illegals, and the millionaires and middle class flee.

I wonder which exodus will have the greatest impact, New York or California.

That's the problem, people flee the high-tax states, then vote in people that will enact the exact same policies in their new state.

Kelly, it is SO frustrating. We want to move but also don't want to move with all the other Californians who will end up voting for the very same things they/we are running away from. For now we stay, but I'm seriously looking at moving to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe.

I want to move, but want to wait at least until all 3 kids are done with high school. That's another 6 years. I'm thinking about South Carolina.

A girl I went to high school with is a real estate agent down there. She sends me her emails with the new listings. I could damn near get a mansion down there for what my littler house costs up here. It's crazy. I'm tempted every time I look.

Interesting how the limousine liberals won’t put their money where their mouth is.

You never hear a peep from the rich, when a 90% tax increase, wealth Tax, 40% exit taxes are mentioned. They must know, it politics, never happens!

Also they know most of the rules don’t apply to them because they donate to certain politicians. Buffet for example, says he should pay more taxes but when the irs said he owed over $1 billion in back taxes he fought it. They would put me or you in prison for a lot less than that.

How about instead of finding ways to spend more tax money you try to reduce taxes.

It’s always to help starving children but somehow they enriched themselves in their “charitable” giving.

No the difference is that this is what a democrat says during a campaign, a republican used to mean it, but now I don't know where they are. A true conservative still actually believes it.

Republicans just passed the largest corporate tax cut in history. They at least deserve some credit?

Oh yes absolutely. That was great. They are not all as reliable as I'd like, that was the reason for my comment.

Ok. I thought you were one of these “they are all the same” people that can’t recognize who are making good choices.

Nice to see a liberal that actually learned from reality.

Not enough to actually lower them to get the millionaires to stay or attract more of them, but it's a start.

He has learned to say this, you cannot convince me he actually believes it.

Well, he did try to blame the Trump tax cuts for lowering the cap that could be claimed on your federal taxes to $10,000. Sure, blame the federal government for making your state's citizens actually pay the taxes you are charging them and not making other states subsidize it, instead of lowering your state's taxes.

TomM

Yes exactly. This tax policy change was genius, it exposes the liberal tax policy failures. Trump really nailed it.

Yes. It was a backdoor way for these liberal states to have their citizens give them tax money instead of the federal government. Nice to see that trick reduced.

“I don’t believe in raising taxes on the rich”

Then why are taxes on the rich so high?

Because Cuomo is an imbecile. I live in NY and suffer through this hell ....at least until I can retire and get the hell out of this.

He said they can't go back to the well and tax them again, because they're already leaving with the current tax levels. I've been saying this to all the Liberals who want a 70, 80, or 90% marginal tax rate on the rich. They will take their money elsewhere.
