Much more at site. Interesting number crunching:
The Volokh Conspiracy - -
Oregon is about to go into hyper tax state. I know they will be pushing a sales tax. Then there's the corporate minimum tax they have been looking at raising for years.
It's gonna go from bad to worse in Oregon.
Can you show me a state that fell apart because they taxed too much?
And did you see this?
Four states dominate city foreclosure rankings - Mortgage Mess- msnbc.com
Nevada, Arizona, Florida and California.
Foreclosure rates have nothing to do with taxes.
Another BooBoo non sequitur
In three of those four states, the entire mess can be blamed on overbuilding and over-speculation, plain and simple. California's problems are probably more complex than that.
There might be a link between taxes and unionization and unemployment, but there are other more powerful forces driving those numbers.
For example, most of the lowest unemployment states have low unemployment because the farm economy has been doing relatively better than the rest of the economy. Michigan is reeling because of the decline in the auto industry, which is effected by unionization but not taxation. California is getting hammered because of the collapse in real estate.
It is interesting to note that the two states which are the hubs of venture capital and the commercialization of innovation are both high tax states - California and Massachusetts.
thats all he ever does
Conservatives definetely have the right idea about taxes.
It's too bad they never had any discipline with spending.
Over generalization ...
you are confusing "conservatives" with "republicans"
