    They leave, as is happening in New York right now:

    Tax refugees staging escape from New York

    Keep talking about squeezing people with higher taxes and you see them start to leave the country, not just a state.

    I read this and was surprised that so many came to Jersey. NJ is actually experiencing the same thing.

    And guess what? I have a feeling the tipping point has been met. Illegals and freeloaders may be over 50%. Our corrupt socialist governor may just be re-elected on Tuesday. PRAY FOR US!

    You know this thread really hits home for me.

    I want to open my own business and have saved up almost enough money to do it. But I live in MA and the taxes and regulations and fees are killer. I have seriously been thinking of moving to a few other states just because their policies toward small business are much more friendly than my home state. Plus I have family in them (NC, FLA, TX)

    Well, if you're a smart voter, you remember that come election time and vote accordingly.

    More and more of them start refusing to pay the tax.

    That can involve either leaving the state or lying, like Charlie Rangel.

    None of the scenarios involve increasing gov revenues to cover the huge deficeit Barry keeps expanding.

    You cannot tax your way out of this, they have to STOP SPENDING.

    Starting with Barrycare.

    If they want reform, then do reform, make insurance companies cover all and cap the rates while allowing interstate sales and comprehensive tort reform.

    THAT is ALL that is needed, not 'public options' and other sundry Barryish mumbo jumbo.

    Unfortunately, the dumb-as-shit voters far outnumber the smart voters...
