It's estimated that more than 2,000 upper-income Californians are leaving per week to flee high taxes and costly regulations, yet California wants to raise taxes even higher...Hanson goes on to outline a series of factors now making large swaths of California man-caused disaster zones while leaving other parts so seemingly idyllic that many residents there may remain in denial.
Scariest part is that the federal government seems to, or has overtly tried to, apply much of the California model to our nation as a whole.
Higher taxes, uncontrolled immigration, environmental restrictions... Remember how for two years, President Obama insisted high speed rail was one of the engines that would restore our national economy?
It's past time to blow off progressive fantasies, and return to a nation and government based on economic realities. Do we really want the country to continue trying to replicate the California nightmare?
