    Well, first of all, NYC *is* Liberalville.

    Second of all, the situation of a person who chooses to live in NYC is no different from the situation of a person who chooses to live in an enormous mansion. They get what they pay for, and they shouldn't expect to get preferential tax treatment just because they chose to live it up. The fact that a $100K per year salary doesn't go as far in NYC as it does in Detroit is irrelevant.

    There are very few jobs that are entirely confined to one city. And if they happened to have one of those jobs, they could change jobs if they wanted to.

    So you don't have anything intelligent to say about tax policy and instead want to rely on moronic emotion-appeals like this one. Noted.

    It wasn't a city enforced policy. It happened all the time though. And yes firemen got discounts too. And to tell you the truth I really did not mind a cop living next door to me even if it was an apartment for his mistress, gay lover or what ever else.


    And this was before the 5 Borough law.

    Whether or not it was city policy really does not matter. It did happen and still goes on.

    Are you going to explain why you think income taxes should be adjusted based on cost of living, when the government didn't force people to live in expensive cities?

    If you have a choice between living in NYC or Buffalo and you pick NYC, that's perfectly fine. But don't expect the government to subsidize your choice by adjusting your income taxes to your cost of living, because YOU made the choice to live there.

    Besides, if the government based tax rates on cost of living, then how would all the welfare queen red states survive with out all that money coming in from places like New York.
