Show me the stats on that.
The reason is obvious: Consider the income levels necessary to pay for the expensive real estate here. Those high incomes pay higher income taxes, as do all the fabulously successful high tech companies out here. That high cost of living sends people elsewhere to retire. Hence, high net revenue transfer.
Most online sources don't go back very far, but if you need an example try the numbers from 1990-98 from the Statistical Abstract of the United States. Be sure to compare them with other States which you think so frugal. There are quite a few surprises in that listing.

Sorry to be so cryptic - Show me the stats on that means show me recent data from a reliable source instead of tying the Wild Goose Chase Gambit. Since YOU are the one making the claim, it is up to YOU to find the information from an accredited information source (i.e. NOT the wiki) and quote it here for everyone to see. Can you do that?
