Hey New Yorkers, how's your nanny-state mayor working out for you?
Mayor Bloomberg has set his cross hairs on trans fat foods, sugary sodas, plastic shopping bags, outdoor smoking ... jobs, low taxes ... but I'm sure he knows what's best for you.
New Yorkers under 30 plan to flee city, says new poll; cite high taxes, few jobs as reasons
A new Marist College poll shows that 36% of New Yorkers under the age of 30 are planning to leave New York within the next five years - and more than a quarter of all adults are planning to bolt the Empire State.There are a few more things I could call Bloomberg but for now I'll let him enjoy his dream of escaping labels (as his citizens dream of escaping him). At least once these young people escape the Bloomberg nanny state, they'll get to enjoy trans fat foods and sugary sodas once again.
The New York City suburbs, with their high property values and taxes, are leading the exodus, the poll found.
Of those preparing to leave, 62% cite economic reasons like cost of living, taxes - and a lack of jobs.
