States Taxing Themselves to Death

Census Data -- Population Flocks to States Without an Income Tax

by Dick Morris:

NY Post: High taxes kill states.

There can be no better evidence than the 2010 Census. The states that lost House seats -- because they're shrinking, relative to the nation -- had taxes 27% higher than the ones that gained seats.

Of the seven states that don't have a personal income tax, four (Texas, Florida, Nevada and Washington) account for eight of the 12 seats apportioned to the fastest-growing states.

New York and Ohio lost two more seats. Other losers -- down one each -- are Massachusetts, Missouri, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Louisiana and Iowa. What do they all have in common? High taxes. ...

The states that lost seats ranked an average of 24th in taxes and had an average tax burden of $2,267 per capita. ... The states that gained seats ranked an average of 39th in taxes and had an average tax burden (weighted) of $1,788 -- 27% lower than the losing states. ...
The trend is unmistakable: The "losing" states drove out their high-income citizens (and middle-income jobs) with heavier tax burdens.

I'm still amazed 27 years later, after moving here, that we still don't have state income tax here. Hats off to our tourists I guess.

24th? Being in the 50th percentile can hardly be called the highest taxed states...

I would be much more impressed I'd the states were ranked higher than 10th.

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

I think that a large part of this is the loss of union auto worker jobs that have moved to non union states. Missouri has lost thousands of assembly jobs in the last couple of years and I know that many of these workers moved south to build Japanese cars!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Arkansas has a bunch of hypocrites- first they voted Tea Party Republican, then they turned around and voted to approve every spending project that came up. Its like, we want fiscal responsibility but we still want "our" pork projects. When are we going to realize that in order to stop the bleeding we have to stitch up the wound.

That wound may have to bleed a lot more.
