A couple more faults you forgot to mention...your property taxes and vehicle registration fees are outrageous. I'm in NH, and I am out of here at the earliest opportunity.
Hey, enjoy that sales and income tax in any one of 49 or 48 other states that you move to, respectively. The reason all the Massholes are moving here is because our property taxes are still less than theirs on average, plus we don't have the other taxes that I mentioned.
Yeah, the vehicle registration costs suck, but that's the price you pay for being the only state where you aren't required to purchase car insurance or wear a seatbelt. I'll make that up in a week with all the money that I don't have to spend at cash registers via the sales tax.
Plus, I paid more in Georgia for it when I lived there.
If only you were a freestater or a commuter...
