Last One Out Turn Off the Light

Last One Out Turn Out the Light

5-17-11

 New York State is a pretty generous place if you need a hand out.

 We spend more on Medicaid than Florida, Texas and California combined. A billion dollars a week.

 More than a quarter of the 20 million who live in New York are on some sort of public assistance.

 Now you’d think with this utopian dream that New York politicians have created that people would be flocking to New York, and indeed we have become a magnet for those who are wards of the state, dependent upon the wage earners and taxpayers for their food, their housing and their health care.

 But we are paying a price.

 We have the worst business climate in America. The second highest state and local tax burden in the nation.

 During the last 10 years, 1.7 million people have fled the State of New York. Half a million jobs have disappeared. And according to a recent Marist Poll, one-third of those under the age of 30 plan to leave New York just as soon as they can.

 Little wonder that the young want no part of the price that must be paid for turning New York into a welfare Mecca.

 Meanwhile, the newspapers say they are creating a lot of new jobs in Texas.

 Would the last one to leave New York out please turn off the lights?
