Oh well leave then!
Our paradise doesn’t need you! (Just your money.)
The Democrats in IL have just dug a bigger hole in their state’s fiscal outlook.
People are going to pack up and leave. And they won’t be coming back.
Zounds! They are ASKING businesses to leave, or not be profitable.
Incoming! Here comes the exodus!
66% tax increase. They seem to think people love higher taxes. Wait until they have to pay them!
FL has no state personal or corporate income tax. So if you had relocate - where would you go to save money?
FABs or sandwich shops. We’ll take ‘em.
Moving my company to Washington from Montana because of their income tax and their rural property tax thieves who steel from businesses that don’t grow or raise stock.
Moving to the border so I can buy supplies with zero sales tax in Oregon and pay zero income tax in Washington.
Only 5 employees but hey politicians wake up! We don’t mind taxes that go to make government work but when you scum sucking pigs rape us to buy votes we will eventually leave the country to bribe people much cheaper then you.
Don’t think about it—do it!
If it were me, I would have done it yesterday.
In the middle of it now. Bye-Bye MT. These were also jobs that pay much higher then what these people here are use to.
There was an interesting radio spot on the “news” about the tax hikes. Some airhead was interviewed and offered “that with thse huge deficits, well, there’s nothing to do but pay higher taxes, and get on with our lives.”
Sounds like a lot of folks and businesses are going to “get on with their lives” - right out of the state.
Texas, but that's just me .. heh.
I'm a Californian who spent time living in Florida, but when it came time for me to pull up stakes and get the family out of LaLa Land, I chose the Lone Star State.
I still can't believe what a good move it was.
When folks can’t beat liberalism at the polls, they often vote with their feet.
Love Jimmy John’s. Their “Garg” is awesomeness on a roll.
I prefer their bootlegger sandwich.
The name sticks in my mind, but I don’t remember what’s on that one. Does it come equipped with the goodness of bacon? I’m sure I’d like ‘most any of their sandwiches, except for a vegetarian one (I think they have at least one of those?). Vegetarian subs are surely the work of the Devil.
I don’t know much about business taxes, but how does the company feel about the Washington Business and Occupancy Tax and state run workman’s comp? It seems if anything Washington state is lagging behind in job growth.
I’ve seen this sort of thing go on in NY for ages. Dem strongholds with unions who get too greedy for their own good. They never learn.
Roast beef, turkey, lettuce, tomato and mayo. I don’t know why it’s so good. It just is.
