Mass Exodus in Blue States as 5 million People Move to Avoid “Soak the Rich” Economic Policies: Economist Stephen Moore

Economist Stephen Moore unveiled concerning statistics in a recent interview with Fox Business, shedding light on what he terms “Blue State Dysphoria” and the subsequent mass migration from states like California, New York, and Illinois.
Here is a brief overview of his analysis

Over the past decade, nearly 5 million individuals have departed from prominent Blue states, marking one of the largest population shifts in U.S. history.

Seven states (Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming) do not currently have state income taxes, according to Investopedia.

Furthermore, Washington levies income taxes on capital gains and investment income—but only on a limited group of extremely wealthy individuals.

Conversely, New Hampshire levies taxes on interest and investment income, but it intends to phase those taxes out beginning in 2023.

This will increase the number of states with no income tax to nine by 2027.

The ongoing migration underscores the importance of creating an environment conducive to economic prosperity, with taxes and regulatory frameworks playing pivotal roles in shaping residents’ decisions.

Some Blue states continue to enact soak-the-rich policies in spite of growing evidence to the contrary.

A clear example is the recent decision by California to implement a 14.4% tax rate.

On the other hand, states with zero income taxes, such as Florida and Texas, present a strong alternative for people looking for financial relief and economic opportunity.

The Path Forward

As the South emerges as an economic powerhouse, the question remains whether Blue states will adapt to the changing landscape or face irreversible consequences due to continued high-tax policies.

Moore asks, will Blue states heed the warning signs and enact meaningful policy changes to reverse the trend, or will the migration crisis persist, altering the economic landscape for years to come?
