After last month’s vote that makes Californians among the highest-taxed victims of progressive policies and liberally wasted spending in the country, many of the state’s highest wage earners are planning to leave the formerly golden state for more friendly economic surroundings.
Two time Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown successfully pushed the tax increase on his servants by suggesting that high-earners, those making above minimum wage including tips, must shoulder the largest burden in bailing out the state, particularly its politically correct liberalized debt-ridden public school system.
“I’m as mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore,” said a very wealthy Lake Tahoe resident who currently lives on the California side of the border. But he can save nearly $100,000 per year in onerous taxes by moving just a few miles east to swank Incline Village, Nevada’s state income tax free community.
“People laugh at me as soon as they find out I’m from California,” said a high income resident who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. “But when they stop ridiculing me for paying unfathomable tax rates, they always ask me if I know David Hasselhoff from Knight Rider or Loni Anderson from WKRP in Cincinnati.”
The actual 47% unemployment and multi-billion dollar government debt have already sent residents fleeing in large numbers , an estimated 2,250,000 annually for imgresthe past 10 years. Statisticians estimate that California will be a veritable wasteland by 2014.
“If it weren’t for the illegal immigrants coming into the Spanish speaking state you would think this was a ghost town,” offered an assistant to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “People think the mayor is pro illegal alien because he’s Hispanic, but he really just needs people to rule over… or he’s out of a job.
The Mayor is contemplating “Free Taco Tuesdays” every week just to stop the illegals from going back home. And Washington D.C. won’t take him so he’s stuck in L.A.”
Much of the debate has raged around why the resident’s voted Jerry Brown back into the Governor’s office after he led the state to near collapse in the 1970′s.
“Most Democrats voted for Brown automatically,” said a key pollster. “But Brown made his gains with independent and conservative voters because they assumed he would bring singer Linda Ronstadt back into the state’s floundering entertainment industry.”
Ronstadt, a former love interest of Brown’s during his disgraceful first go around as California Governor, was the most successful female singer of the 1970′s and sold enough records to keep the state from financial ruin.
Brown broke off his relationship with the singer after her “friendship” with Rita Coolidge was exposed. Coolidge, a descendant of the Cherokee nation, was very close to Ronstadt and their relationship would have damaged the politician’s chances for national office in the days of racial and homosexual prejudice. Ronstadt never married.
“More is never enough for these people,” Kris Vosburgh, executive director of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assoc., said about the Democrat-backed increase. “It’s hard to believe people will not leave.”
The California tax increases that passed in November, known as Proposition 30, are expected to generate at least an additional $6 billion annually if the population stays the same, but will cost the state $13 billion if people wake up and abandon the merciless tax grabbing state.
“The rich Californians will never leave this state because they have nowhere else to go,” said Governor Brown’s head intern. “New York won’t take them seriously as intellectuals, and the fly over states are simply way too boring… rich people don’t go to rodeos.”
PalookavillePost.com discovered a clause in Prop 30 that mandates California border guards inspect the wallets and purses of anyone crossing the state line with more than $10. Any dollar amount greater than $10 will be taxed at the usual 47% rate.
