    It would seem that liberals claiming that higher taxes reduce debt has also been debunked as your state has the highest taxes in the nation and the highest debt in the nation. You must be so proud, further you have debunked nothing regarding businesses fleeing California other than try to pass off your opinion as fact. You seem to have the same economic background as "your" President

    Here ya go again Con.....where does Texas rank in relation to California?

    Oh...those dang facts again.
    Great, then explain your high debt and high number of businesses fleeing the state. Looks to me like your state cannot manage money very well which makes it liberal.

    It has been debunked numerous times when you make the claim. Some businesses have left California, but new ones have come. It pretty much is an even exchange...not the doomsday that you guys have been predicting for 30 decades. If you understood California you would know that the main part of California's debt started with Prop 13 which capped property taxes. There are good and bad parts about prop 13, but the bottom line is it cost the state a lot of revenue.

    Care to address how you were wrong about Red states propping up the blue ones.
    Care to address how you claim California's economy is horrible when it is the 9th ranked in the world
    Care to address the Texas economy in relation to California?

    Yeah....thought not.

    Red states collect what they are due for the cost of govt. programs i.e. expansion of unemployment benefits by the Federal Govt. Unfunded mandates were outlawed when Clinton signed on to the contract with America

    California's economy ranking 9th in the world is irrelevant when the state has the highest number of people on California minimum wage and the highest debt in the nation with the highest taxes.

    Texas economy is booming and paying for itself. California is stagnant and creating debt.

    Well then, debunk those myths once again.

    As you thrill to the spin from the Governors Office, please also post figures related to the defered pension liabilities for State Employees...

    LOL....your link is two years old and California ranks way ahead of Texas on your own link. Try again.

    Btw...I LOVE your Conservative spin on explaining that Red States taking more for every dollar than they put in is getting their "due". Now we understand why you guys think that structuring tax bases so that the wealthy get the biggest tax breaks and incentives at the expense of the middle/working class is nothing more than the wealthy getting their "due". Sometimes you just make it way too easy.

    No need to try at all, TX doesn't have the debt that California has nor the taxes.
