Default Connecticut, Nationís Wealthiest State, May be Tapped Out on Taxing the Rich

Finally, these assholes figured out the well is running dry. After hoots and hollers to "Tax the Rich" state revenues fell 400-500 million. They finally figure out that raising taxes actually reduces revenues. Stupid fucks!

Earlier this year, the Courant reported that one of three Connecticut residents with an 11-figure net worth, according to the latest Forbes magazine list of the forbes wealthiest individuals, had relocated from Greenwich to Florida, the second individual in that tax bracket to do so recently. The exits, the Courant reported, “leave Connecticut with 13 billionaires, including Ray Dalio ($15.6 billion) and Steven Cohen ($12.7 billion), both hedge fund owners who live in Greenwich.” Eight of those 13 state residents list Greenwich as their home address, according to Forbes.

Connecticut, a state of only 3.5 million people, was once the economic powerhouse of the western world. Jet engine, nuclear submarines, every rifle and handgun you can think of, all made here. Not to mention the pharmaceutical and insurance capital of the world as well as the finest public schools, state and private universities, and the most highly educated population in the nation. Until that is, liberals infected the land of "steady habits" and have been hellbent on turning it into the Detroit of New England. WHen General Electric, with an annual income of 127 billion, threatened to move is World Headquarters due to the punitive tax rates, the Democrat Senate leader said "they're bluffing" Nope, Up the road to Boston. Not only are the rich leaving, so is the middle class with average house-hold incomes upwards of 250K (which ain't much here). Democrats, however, celebrate the fact that for every 5 residents that leave, 3 foreign born people come, (to take advantage of the most lucrative public assistance in the country) They should be charged with war crimes for what they did to this beautiful state.

They're going to save the state with recreational weed, soda tax and highway tolls
(the new casino is just a bailout for the tribes)

in other words, taxing the regular guy now instead.

You don't have to be wealthy to know that taxing the shit out of rich people doesn't work. You can tax the shit out of poor people and it works but you can't tax the shit out of rich people.

1. Rich people are rich. They have money to hire really clever accountants who find loopholes to get them out of their big tax bills.

2. Rich people are rich, they can pack up their shit and relocate to another palace in another state/country/continent where taxes are lower and continue life as if nothing happened.

This is what socialism and the left keep failing to understand, and every day they fail to understand it they drag the western world down a little bit more. People are generally happy to pay a certain % of tax. We all understand that a modern nation needs to disperse lots of money to keep that nation functioning, and everybody is happy to pay some % of their income to that cause.

They stop being happy when you start taking 50% of their income, like we do here in Britain, so that the government can send 0.8% of your entire nation's GDP to poor countries in foreign aid, so you can pay welfare to tens of millions of people - many of whom weren't even born here and have never even bothered to work legally, and so forth.

So if Connecticut wants to continue taxing the shit out of the rich like Britain does, fine, go ahead. Just be aware that the rich WILL leave and they WILL take all the jobs they create with them.

I say all this as someone who earns less than $200 per week working part-time, so don't go accusing me of being rich or anything.

Even the asshat governor malloy finally figured out what Margaret Thatcher said, "the problem with socialism is sooner or later, you run out of other people's money". So whats left? Exact what Zero said, tax the average guy to death. Unlike the rich, they're not as mobile. The real joke is Mallow never intended to be around when the shit hit the fan. He was assured a job in the Clinton administration!

That's race baiting right there and yet you don't care that it is.
You don't even care about yourself here and you want us to believe this dribble?
Pfffffff.

Top rate of tax in the UK is 45%. Labour want to put it up to 50%, that will be damaging.

https://www.gov.uk/income-tax-rates/...and-allowances

Labour in the 70's put tax up to 99% for the rich, they all fucked off and took their taxable income with them.

Hollande put the tax up to 70%, same result, London is now one of the largest French cities and French socialist party's are nowhere to be seen.
