Can't take much more

Every time I turn around, there is another tax, or a tax increase. I have to get out of this town and out of this state. I am getting too old, there are no jobs, the Feds, the state, and this town keep taking. You only get so much with SS, an Hopkinton gives you no break.
I have read that there an exodus of people from RI. So if you are young, understanding that much of this country is imploding in on itself. Hopkinton lives in the past as many town in RI do.

I guess you are not alone. I leaned one of my neighbors has had it with this town. Not that they are out of work, they are not. They make a combined six figure salary. They are just sick of this town and the taxes.
So I was told the house will be let go to the bank, and they can deal with the town. They expect maybe two to three years before it moves, but they are just tired of putting money in to it, paying more and more in taxes every year and seeing nothing in return.
My fear is they are not alone.
