California. 8th largest economy on the planet. Rich with industry, agriculture, and real estate. And look at the mess they're in. $40B in deficit! How did they get that way? 1. Government got too big. 2. Social spending overwhelmed the budget. And that's in a "high tax" state. You read where they are planning to raise taxes to ease the shortfall. You also read where many of the wealthy are moving to lower tax states. What happens if ALL the wealthy move to Arkansas? Who will be left in California to pay for social programs? America as a country is traveling down the same path. The WRONG path. What we should be doing is encouraging GROWTH. Encourage international business to move their money to the USAâ¦. to make their products hereâ¦ and employ American workers. We accomplish that goal by enabling policies which are business friendly and tax friendlyâ¦. broadly based, lower taxes. NObama plans to raise taxes on business and the wealthyâ¦ encouraging all to leave who can. Others will follow when they "can't stand it any more". What will be left of America then? Who will be left to PAY for social programs? NOBODY, that's who. AMERICA CANNOT AFFORD SOCIALISM!
