Greatly Tax the rich and the rich will leave. New York is having a problem in that they are greatly increasing taxes on the wealthy and the wealthy, having the means, are leaving the state which then means less taxes are being brought in due to it. Still you have so many liberals wanting to greatly tax, and punish, the rich or those who have been able to accumulate wealth while promising to give away everything to everyone. it just doesn't work that way.
The crazy thing is that those who leave the state either to avoid the high taxes or in retirement end up moving to states where the taxes are Low or non-existent and then they end up voting (or donating to) the exact same type politicians that created the mess they ran from. Typical liberal voter.
