When are people going to wake up and realize NYS is bankrupt. There was an entire young generation exodus back in the 90s, and now you will see another exodus of their parents leaving NY to retire with their kids that are out of state.
We were thinking about taking a job transfer back to our hometown of Buffalo, but after figuring the current taxes out, we would be losing nearly $20,000 in overall income. The more we made, and the nicer the house we wanted the worse it got.
We left Buffalo in 1995 after I graduated from College, and I haven't looked back, until this recent job offer, but that lasted for all but 2secs. Looks like we will remain in Texas, which cost about half of what it costs to live in NY.
Great job NY, keep trying to get blood out of a rock.

Corporations run this country. Corporations are raising your taxes. Stop using euphemisms like "special interests" to describe them. The corporate machine runs New York AND the federal government.
Safe-Link... Cell Phones for people on welfare. Those "dirty liberals" giving away your money? NO. The welfare people get a $30 radio. Safe-Link the CORPORATION gets your USF dollars, month after month...
Once you realize there are no "liberals" or "conservatives", that the same puppeteers are behind BOTH doors, only then can you fight back.
