    You don't get it, any increase in taxes affects human behavior and when Federal Taxes go up, people are going to look to lower their expenses somewhere else and that means they will look to states with lower taxes. TX continues to take businesses from all over the nation but in particular business from Illinois and California. There is no state income taxes in TX so when a Federal Tax increase is added to state taxes there is only one way to keep expenses down, move and that is what businesses do.

    Yes, Texas has no state taxes, I use to live there..... but Texans still pay federal taxes.....so as I said, that is Maryland's problem...the big issue here is federal taxes...

    Odd how many are so concerned with the plight of the rich, having to pay more taxes and all, when they are not one of them....

    Yes, Texans do pay Federal Income taxes so tell me which person has a higher total tax burden, Texans or those in Maryland? That is the point, When Federal Taxes go up individuals are going to try and find a way to balance out that burden. How do you explain businesses moving to TX?

    Utah, I don't get it, why such a defense for higher taxes for the Federal Govt? Why are liberals so passionate about raising taxes on anyone? What benefit are those higher taxes going to generate regardless of who pays them? Unbelieveable, this is like a cult. Only one group is fighting hard to take more money from taxpayers, why? If you truly cared about revenue to the govt. why not focus on the big group of 47% that don't pay any Federal Income taxes?

    How do states that don't have income tax pay for things?

    no more odd than how many are so concerned about the plight of the poor, getting screwed by the man and all, when they are not one of them.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Sales tax, property taxes, excise taxes, lower state expenses like a part time legislature.

    Higher fees for state services and licenses too. The point is, it isn't free to live in Texas.

    Interesting isn't how all these "compassionate" liberals are so concerned about the deficit that they promote higher taxes on a particular group of people, the top 2%, knowing that won't have any impact at all on the deficit but ignore the 47% that don't pay any Federal income taxes which could really affect the deficit? This is all about class warfare and nothing more.

    Higher fees? how do you know the cost of living in TX? Fees are on services, don't use the service, don't pay the fees. Amazing how personal choices affect personal finances! It isn't free to live anywhere but businesses keep moving to TX, wonder why? Hmmm

    Property taxes too. And we have an upcoming 20 billion dollar budget "gap."
