Taxes have been exorbitantly high for years in NY and NJ. If these people were so adamant the exodus would have occurred already. Let’s see how many actually leave if his tax policy comes to fruition.

So it seems PBS affiliates are seeing donations drop off as people get tired of being preached to from The Liberal Bible (little red book?) and are rejecting the "special" programming that comes with hours of repetitive begging.

The donations have dropped to the extent that they are forced to do the only thing they know how to do:

Drop regular popular programs and substitute more "special" programming that comes with hours of repetive begging.

(repeat)

For me to know and you not to find out.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers have reached a tentative agreement to raise taxes on the wealthiest New Yorkers as part of a roughly $200 billion state budget deal expected to be announced as early as Monday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

The richest New York City residents would pay the highest combined state and city tax rates in the U.S., surpassing California, and income-tax rates would temporarily increase to 9.65% from 8.82%


Excellent.


Did NY consider cutting spending instead? (blueslegend said with extreme sarcasm)
We're in the middle of a pandemic recession and any economist on either side will tell you cutting spending is not a good idea.
And raising taxes is an even worse idea.
Raising taxes is what this country sorely needs in order to get the monkey off our back and reclaim #1 in the world in all factors and lead the globe into the new age of technology and science.


So we will tax our way to prosperity?
If Biden wants to be the next FDR as the media is crowning him......yes.

It's his legacy to take. We shall see if he has the backbone to go after the rich.
Bi-Dumb is a fucking Communist, just like you, scumbag.

New York has elected Cuomo three times, so it sounds like a tax increase is something they want and deserve.

What happened to all of the allegations against him for sexual harassment, and the nursing home debacle, it's like it all never happened. Must be great to be a democrat sleezeball that never gets held accountable for anything.

And what happens when they move?

You're a grown man asking me "What happens when folks sell their house and move" ?

Both residents and corporations are leaving high-tax States in large numbers every year...

Places like New York Illinois and the People's Democratic Socialist Republic of Kalipornia...

They need to look over the lip of the well every so often...

If they did, they'd find the water levels dangerously low, and still draining...

Fools.

I mean okay...but y'all may want to get that marty guy some help. He just asked me what happens when people move.

I was explained that as a 5 year old when my best friend moved away.

The whole purpose is to increase revenue. When a person stays, say you gain $100k from them, but if they leave, you lose their ENTIRE tax payment, probably in the millions.

So every person that leaves eliminates the increase you get from multiple people.

Math isn't your strong point.

Pretty sure he wasn’t looking for “I lost my Ken doll I left at lil Timmy’s house”.
