“If you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and state, my tax rate is 62, 63 percent,” Mickelson said.“So I’ve got to make some decisions on what to do.”

In December, Mickelson, who was part of a group that had bought the San Diego Padres four months earlier, abruptly announced that he was no longer involved in the business deal. His reversal came shortly after California voters approved Proposition 30, which imposed a 13.3 percent tax rate on incomes of more than $1 million.

Asked Sunday if the election results played a role in his decision to sever his ties with the Padres’ ownership group, Mickelson replied,“Yeah, absolutely.”

Who wants to bet Phil smartly moves to a tax free state like Florida or Texas?

A move from California to Florida or Texas would save Phil 6.4 million a year on yearly earned income not even including investment income.

And this is something the liberals just don't get. If you penalize the rich they will move and take their money with them.
