High Tax State Taxpayers fighting back

So many citizens, when confronted with high taxes, vote with their feet and move to a lower tax jurisdiction. Our own Davidson County Tennessee is a good example. Many citizens got fed up with high taxes and moved to surrounding counties where services are as good or better and property taxes are 40% less.

Many taxpayers in high tax states also chose to move (to TN for example, I get phone calls from them almost every day) rather than fight but some hardy souls are beginning to fight back against the presumption that the family budget is less important than the government budget.

In New York a great new billboard campaign.

In Michigan a new audio ad asking the Governor not to drive out even more business by raising taxes.
