One of the realities of living in a liberal state is that their economic policies are often…unfriendly.
That’s because liberals are such firm believers in high taxes and strangling businesses with needless regulations. The government knows best!
No state better exemplifies the utter failure of liberal leadership than California.
Nearly everything in the state is controlled by leftists, and if politicians happen to have an “R” next to their name, you can bet they are at best establishment types.
In recent years, the economic climate in the state has sent businesses looking for greener pastures, and it appears another big-names business fleeing the left-coast.
As reported at Right Wing News, Nestle will be relocating operations to Rosslyn, Virginia, where the economic policies are far more sensible. This move will create about 1,000 new jobs.
This move will create about 1,000 new jobs.
Writing for Investors Business Daily, Terry Jones commented that “(a)s many companies have found, California is an awful place to do business.”
He continued, “But the fact is, Nestle and its corporate brethren in California that actually make things are overtaxed and over-regulated, and elected officials treat them not as honored members of the community but as rapacious pirates.”
People can barely afford to live in the state, as houses cost a fortune and taxes are obscene.
The Mercatus Center at George Mason University ranks California 49th on a list of “free states.”
Their reasoning is that the state “taxes and regulates its economy more than most “other states” and ranks the state last in “Regulatory Freedom” and 49th in “Occupational Licensing” regulations.
For 4 years running, California has seen a net outflow of residents fleeing to lower tax, more economic friendly states.
So much for the Left’s utopia. They have complete control in the state so they own all of the failed policies and broken promises.
While the economic woes being felt by the people are unfortunate, many of them voted for the morons making the policies, so I don’t feel very bad for them.
Especially now that they have dug in their heels and plan to defy Trump on immigration, choosing illegals over their own citizens.
The truth is that the state is the author of its own misery. And it will continue to suffer so long as the far-left is behind the wheel.
