Texas has no debt problem. In fact, we have s “rainy day fund” to cover emergencies like hurricanes.
Must have something to do with Eluzabeth Warren.
I'll just leave this here.
US State and Local Government Gross Public Debt ranked by: percent GDP
Texas = 16.52%
California = 16.20%
Indians from India.
I thought it was obvious.
I have a client there where a good 95% of the IT department are from India, all the way from coders to supervisors, managers, directors and VPs.
US Citizens who love sovereignty and protection from foreign invasion should be appalled by the treasonous support of subjugation to foreign nationals expressed in the actions of the government officials in LA County and California.
Subjugation...... Hard to take your posts seriously when you make comments like that.
Not true at all.
California's estimated total debt exceeds $1.3 trillion. They are fond of ignoring the unfunded pension liabilities of CalPers and CalStrs.
Further, they borrowed against various funds and have not paid back the money...
Who stands post and protects America and fights America's wars ?
The majority who serve come from those red states.
You haven't refuted my point that poorer Jesusland states...
... are getting tax dollars through the federal government.
You should let the people you don't like go.
Yes, because that’s where the military bases are. Ditto NASA.
Why do you hate Indians?
And we’re able to keep afloat WITH NO INCOME TAX.
Who said I hate them?
Accusing others of hatred is an old liberal tactic.
I think it is very unfortunate high paying / high tech jobs in US have been surrendered to foreigners. Unfortunately this is the kind of 'merit based' immigration the Donald Trump admin promotes.
Sure, you charge massive property taxes instead (more than double of California). Every State collects their taxes one way or another. Florida doesn't have income tax either, but the property tax millage rates are quite high, especially in urban areas where the jobs are.
Trump is on TV blaming Obama for not painting the current wall, while the obvious question why he hasn't painted them himself in the 2 years he has been in office.
Huh? You don't like California, Oregon, Washington, New England, New York, etc. Let these states go rather than talk about building walls around them.
You can keep NASA, Fort Hood, Fort Sam Houston, etc. California could keep Camp Pendleton, Edwards AFB, etc.
You could even get a free trade deal, just not the tax transfers to your poor states.
As stated before, you've self-exposed an emotional/ irrational loathing of where you live. A Republican intensely unhappy and wishful for everyone to suffer for your hate. Neither patriot nor of sound mind. Please keep us updated on your departure and all the details on your new state home. Which Red state is waiting for your troubled soul?
Isn't Obama's sequestration still in affect ?
You and your Suth'n Fried Poor Pals are soaking up tax transfers from the states you detest.
Yes, it goes to our (federal) military bases.
Our taxes are much lower than in the blue states. That’s a big reason why people are fleeing the blue states.
My parents lived in Connecticut, where their local property tax was more than their house payment. And it wasn’t close.
People in red states also give a higher percentage of their income to charity than the people in blue states.
You don’t want to be a Salvation Army volunteer at Christmastime in NYC or Boston.
I know you are intelligent based on some of your posts. So you know the 'writing is on the wall' that Texas will be a purple state maybe as soon as 2020.
California property tax is around 1%, and in Texas is it 1.86%
Sure.....Property tax in CT is 1.63%, which is lower than TX.
Their house payment depend entirely on the size of their mortgage, so it is an irrelevant thing to mention.
Separate names with a comma.
