Default Connecticut, Nation’s 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.
