    Let the mass exodus of California begin! The weather is the only thing keeping people there. Allow the fruits and nuts who have created that nightmare of a government sink with the rest of the ship.

    Massachusetts will also raise sales tax by 25%.

    Will be a big loss for many stores, especially because New Hampshire is so close with NO sales tax....

    Unfortunately govt has to be paid for, NJ has some of the highest property taxes in the country, and 7% sales tax. Didn't CA pass proposition 13 a number of years ago which limited property taxes?
    Basically you're gonna pay one way or the other. Wasn't Arnold supposed to save the state though?
    Isn't that why they recalled the other governor ?

    That is why as soon as I retire I am leaving this failed state and never looking back.

    As for CA, Pat Buchanan had an interesting article about the mess that state finds itself in and how it will eventually spread to the rest of the nation:

    Yesterday, there were 11 other states in the same boat as CA. No budgets.
