Americans Continue to Flee States With Higher Taxes

WASHINGTON—States with the highest tax burdens, such as New York, Illinois, and California, continue to lose residents this year as tax rates have a significant effect on the growth and prosperity of the states, economists say. “The evidence is clear that competitive tax rates, thoughtful regulations, and responsible spending lead to more opportunities for all Americans,” according to the “Rich States, Poor States” report by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a conservative nonprofit organization.

But that doesnt mean that we will not shout out against his initiatives, whether its to tie up the Postal Service so that we will not have the opportunity for people to vote by mail, to not having to choose between their health and their vote,” Pelosi told CNN. “It doesnt mean that we ignore the Russian interference into our election and they try to cloak it by saying, Well, we look at many countries. No, the Russians 24/7 are interfering into our election.” Without evidence, Pelosi said that Trump “welcomes it,” apparently referring to Russian interference. Trump has long said that he has not colluded with the Kremlin while former special counsel Robert Mueller fo..
