New York: Population: Dwindling

You CANNOT tax people on taxes on top of taxed products and still believe in any delusional state of mind that they will stay around very long.  When they leave, you must necessrily raise more taxes to compensate for their having left (and reducing your revenue).

The answer - cut and slash.  Don't tax.

(Newser) – This can't bode well for New York state: A new poll shows that more than a third of residents under 30 want to move away within five years, notes DNAinfo. The big reasons: Jobs, taxes, and the cost of living. The percentage of wannabe bag-packers drops from 36% to 24% for those living specifically in New York City, notes the Gothamist blog. A hefty 77% of the 941 poll respondents of all ages consider the state expensive for an average family.

“New Yorkers are feeling the financial squeeze on the home front," writes Lee M. Miringoff of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. “Right now, many young people do not see their future in New York state. Unchecked, this threatens to drain the state of the next generation."
