Are you one of the few stubborn people left who are skeptical as to the magic of low taxes? Did all of the stories of new jobs and employee bonuses fly over your gulliver? Read on.
Leftist sh*tholes High-tax states are driving people toward more livable locales (i.e. rojo-colored states). In fact, the exodus is so massive, these states are beginning to lose congressional seats. For reals.
Some current projections show high-tax California is on the bubble to actually lose a congressional seat in 2020
For history buffs, it is possible that high-tax Rhode Island will lose one of its two congressional seats in 2020. That will be the first time since 1789 that Rhode Island only has one congressional seat.
Lemme translate that into gif format:
Meanwhile, another state with extremely high tax burdens, New York, is set to lose yet another seat in 2020, the eighth census in a row that the Empire State has forfeited seats.
Maybe they can finally enjoy big gulps sans guilt.
On a more optimistic note, a duo of no-income tax states (a key factor in economic competitiveness), Florida and Texas, are the likely big winners in 2020. Current projections have Florida gaining two new seats, with Texas likely set to gain two to three new seats.
To their credit, leftists tout their economic theories as fostering progress, and their citizens are certainly progressing. Progressing right out of the state. Taking their income potential (and tax potential) with them.
The fact is high taxes kill all progress and clear out spaces like broken wind at a chili cook-off. Lowering taxes to a more reasonable level has the opposite effect. As if the past month hasn’t been evidence enough of that. In the battle of tax rates, lower always wins.
The longer leftists continue ignoring reality, specifically that people prefer keeping their own money, thanks, the deeper they’ll slip into irrelevancy. I guess they need to hold fast to their principles, though. Democrats skipping high tax policies is harder than Amy Schumer forgoing vagina jokes. Not sure which is more unpleasant.
