Hannity: I Talked With My Wife – “We Are Going to Leave” New York State (Video)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 1-21-2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 01/21/2014 8:11:34 PM PST by servo1969

Sean Hannity tells his audience he is leaving New York state after Cuomo’s comments. Sean said he discussed it with his wife and they are moving to Texas or Florida.

“Look, I have contractual obligations, I can’t leave here. My kids are in school. And there are about over 100 people who that rely on me. People who have kids and mortgages and homes. I can’t selfishly pack up and leave. But my wife and I discussed last night Dana that we are going to leave. I wouldn’t pay a 10% state tax in Florida or Texas. I would save a lot of money… I spoke with Governor Perry. I talked with Governor Rick Scott of Florida. I got a nice note from the Lt. Governor of Texas.”

Hannity went on to say that he won’t be leaving New York until 2017.

(shrug...)

After reading the article, I’m confused. Is Hannity leaving New York or
not leaving?

He said on the radio today that he won't pull up stakes until 2017. Apparently because too many people's livelihoods are tied into his two shows.

Rush Limbaugh left New York when they forced through the “millionaire’s tax.”

Perhaps for you and me, but I guess it would pain Sean too badly to put all his staff through so much dislocation.

When I'd finally had enough of California, I told my employees to start looking elsewhere for work, because I was taking the shop to Texas. None of them complained. There were plenty of other contractors to work for. Maybe it's more complicated in Sean's business.

Rush doesn't have offices in New York. He pulled all of his business out of there years and years ago. Every single root of it.

These days, the state of NY tries to put their hand in his wallet if he even steps foot in their state. They're despicable.

He said on the radio today that perhaps as many as a hundred people's livelihoods are directly connected to his two shows. It's not a small operation, apparently.

He said today that his wife wants them to move to Georgia. Sean lived there before when he got his start in radio. It's why he and Neal Boortz are such good buddies.

He has to think about his employees first, they are counting on him so if he leaves, they lose their livelihoods so he won’t be leaving now..now if those people decide to leave along with him different story, but that will be tough considering those people probably have families in New York, can’t expect them to pick up and leave

It would be 100% moral and ethical to tell his employees that they were free to come with him to the new state and that he would even pay some moving expenses. I am certain that he would give a generous severance pay to those who choose to stay in NY.

The only possible problem might be his kids in schools and waiting until the end of the school year might be right. Waiting 3 years does not seem right to me. It is a half-hearted effort.

Oh, they do. My wife and I pulled our business and home out of there eight years ago, and they're still trying to ding us for state income taxes for years which we didn't live there.

It's been a nightmare to get their incorrect tax liens canceled, and the marks on our credit removed.

It's Sean. He's a big wimpy bear. If he really meant what he said, he could do like you suggested, and offer to ease the financial burden of the transition for his staff.

But no. He'd rather stay in New York and give up 64% of his income in local, state, and federal taxes. The libs will be laughing at him for weeks over this.

New Jersey is closer to NYC than Long Island. Not much of a tax break, but no Cuomo. Connecticut isn’t far way either - heck, many hedge funds are located by Greenwich and Westport.

If I’m alive in 2017 I predict this threat has been forgotten. Plus, where is he going to go to work? If his contracts force him to stay in NY, will he get new contracts to broadcast from Texas? He ain’t Rush.

All Hannity can really do is offer his staff a job in the new location and some financial assistance to move there. Life is complex, and most people can't, or are unwilling to uproot themselves and their families, just to stick with a certain employer.

I think Sean feels that he'd be adversely impacting too many people with his personal choice to leave. While I understand that, he ought to realize that most of those people would only be temporarily impacted by his decision. It's not like he'd destroy anyone's life because of it.

I think he's just too soft to go through with it.

If a state tax board comes calling at your bank with a legal seizure order, I'm pretty sure most of them would surrender the funds to pay a tax lien. I doubt that it's just Chase.

That's a dumb reason to stay parked behind enemy lines. It just shows you how well Sean is insulated from the reality of Democrat tyranny. If it really was hurting him and his family, wild horses couldn't stop him from leaving.

I uprooted four of my kids from everything they'd ever known when we moved to Texas. They've established new roots here, and wouldn't go back to Cali if you paid them. Then again, we're just a Mom & Pop sort of business, and were feeling the pain directly.

It's broadcasting. He can do his show from anywhere in the country. The majors have studios in every large city. As long as he delivers his show every day, he's making good on the contract.

“Waiting 3 years does not seem right to me. It is a half-hearted effort.”

He also said: “I can’t move. I have contractual obligations.” That might be the reason for the long delay.

I forget the idiot politician that said: "If I knew I could get rid of Rush earlier, I would have done it". (Referring to taxes)

Well, moron, you don't get to collect any of that sweet tax $ from Rush anymore.

Enjoy it fool.

And DeBlasio should understand that he's going to screw over his tax-sucking base if he chases off the "producers" who provide the leeches with their ill-gotten gains.

I just don't GET liberals.

OK, promise the sponges more programs and free goodies, but if you destroy the people PAYING for said benefits, just where do you think the money will come from?

Lampreys don't pay taxes.

They suck the juices out of those who do.

I heard Hannity say he would not be leaving until 2017. Wont New York have a new Governor by then anyway? The New Gov. may be less of a Dim-Zombie.

I almost never purposely listen to Hannity anymore. Not as faithfully as I used to maybe five years ago. Every time I hear him now, I am reminded what I didn’t like; him talking about himself and all those wonderful things he’s does. It’s true that Sean does have a big heart, but that is more than offset by his big ego. I also don’t like hearing him flirting so constantly with every young female caller. I seems false and forced. Sean, you’re a married man, not even a young man at that. Sean, you and me both look our ages. Its no disgrace or catastrophe.

I don’t like tuning in to hear so frequently from these ghetto dweller type listeners lavishing heaping helpings of even MORE praise for Sean. We used to call that Ass kissing. All Hail St. Sean!! Ok, Ok, I’m done complaining for now.

I think it was the blind, black Governor who said that about Rush Limbaugh and taxes forcing him to move out of the city. I would love to see a documentary about that particular Gov. How did a blind man manage to do that job? What sort of accommodations were needed? I would find a truthful documentary very interesting, even inspiring.

RE :”Hannity went on to say that he won’t be leaving New York until 2017.”

Because he knows by 2017 none of his listeners will even remember him saying it, and so then he can stay in NY after these silly boasts.

Will Coumo even still be in office in 2017?

If liberals ever stopped to think that through, they'd make a 180 degree turnaround at the state level, and begin doing whatever they can to attract producers to their states.

They don't ever get to that point because they don't live with facts, logic, truth, wisdom, reason -- things like that. All of their decision making is based upon feelings, and their discredited socio-political ideology.

They also never take the time to observe the results of their decisions and policies. Actually, they don't dare look at the effects of their policies. If they did, they'd have to commit seppuku.
