ny'ers move to avoid stupid things like this:

Paterson: More Increases in New York Taxes, Fees Coming

ALBANY, N.Y.(AP/ 1010 WINS)-- A week after New York approved the nation's highest cigarette tax, and as lawmakers consider a change in the clothing sales tax to collect more revenue, Gov. David Paterson says there will be more action on taxes and fees to close a deficit in the state budget.
He wouldn't specify what's likely, but referred to his previous proposals, including allowing wine sales in groceries and extending the hours for the Quick Draw lottery game, which critics call "video crack.'' He's also talked about expanding the hours of video slot machine operations at several harness racing tracks, increasing court fees, and imposing a tax on sugary drinks, something many lawmakers thought was dead.

Paterson told WGY Radio in suburban Albany on Thursday that while taxes are regrettable in hard times, they are unavoidable in this fiscal crisis.

You still can't get good pizza or bagels in Florida. Even with all the Jews and Italians that have moved there.

i don't understand why NY can't replicate how other states operate. Texas, FL, Nevada and others have no state income tax and low property taxes. How do they do it?

Tourists pay much of the tax plus the usual things every state has such as sales tax, and gasoline tax. Most years Florida has a tax holiday for a few days where no tax is charged on back to school items.
Little greed in Florida. People know how to say no to politicians, scheming building contractors etc.

Huge, natural scum-magnets are in place in New York. People who have no abilities or talents other than demanding money, food, housing and other entitlements cannot escape their pull. They flock to New York.
The New York politicians who need to launch their careers probably move here because it is easy to win if you just have entitlement promises in your campaign.
My income tax is needed to help house and feed these wonderful people.
