New Yorkers Fleeing the Liberal Tax & Spend Utopia

Knock, knock. Hellooooo, McLiberals? Are you listening, you idiots? Your tax-and-spend utopias are complete and utter failures. To borrow from Mr. Wilkow, we are right, you are wrong, that’s the end of the story.

Notice all the deepest hell holes in the country (Detroit, LA, New York, etc.) all have something in common. They’ve been run by liberals for decades, and they have run them into the ground. The liberals chase away their tax base by continuing to raise taxes to punitive levels and redistributing those tax dollars to the growing sea of welfare sponges. Now they have no one left to tax and the cities are going to He** in a hand basket. And they want to inflict their failure on the rest of us by spreading liberalism to EVERY city and state, and making US bail them out.

Liberalism/progressivism is a failure. Period.

ALBANY– Escape from New York is not just a movie – it’s also a state of mind.A new Marist College poll shows that 36% of New Yorkers under the age of 30 are planning to leave New York within the next five years – and more than a quarter of all adults are planning to bolt the Empire State.

The New York City suburbs, with their high property values and taxes, are leading the exodus, the poll found.

Of those preparing to leave, 62% cite economic reasons like cost of living, taxes – and a lack of jobs.

“A lot of people are questioning the affordability of the state,” said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

An additional 38% cite climate, quality of life, overcrowding, a desire to be closer to family, retirement or schools.

The latest census showed New York’s overall population actually increased, though parts of upstate shed population and jobs.

A full 53% think the worst is yet to come for the state’s economy, while 44% say things should start improving.

“As the state of the economy fails to recover, New Yorkers see this not as a sluggish rebound, but as a sluggish economy,” Miringoff said.

During a visit to Buffalo yesterday, Gov. Cuomo yesterday said attracting and retaining jobs is a priority for his administration.

“We have to keep jobs here and we have to develop new jobs,” he said. “And we want to start bringing back jobs from other parts of the country.”
