Short Takes …

Unemployment Filings:

If Obama were still President how big a story would this be on the news tonight?
“The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, dropping to its lowest level in nearly 45 years as the labor market tightened further, bolstering expectations of faster wage growth this year”.
Instead I bet they have three negative Trump stories first.

News Stories:

More proof that November is going to bring a Democratic landslide (and the return of Nancy Pelosi as speaker).
A Democratic win in a special election, this time in Missouri, where Mike Revis won a 3-point victory in House District 97, which President Donald Trump had won by 28 points.
Think about that, Democrats are winning in areas Trump dominated. Anti people vote.

Did you see the Democratic field for 2020 is starting to take shape and it looks like a lot are planning to run. The latest yesterday was Eric Holder, the former attorney general under Obama.
In our view he was one partisan for sure. We think he runs. Here’s his comments:
“I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether there is another chapter in my government service,” he said. Possibly the presidency? a reporter asked. “We’ll see,” said Mr. Holder.

Low tax states are pursuing high tax state high earners and businesses. This story in a NY newspaper:
“Yes, they are actively poaching and, yes, change of residence is easy,” said Kathryn Wylde, president of the New York City Partnership, the city’s top business advocacy group.
Even losing a few hundred millionaires could wreak havoc on city and state budgets.
The top 1 percent of earners accounts for nearly half of all Big Apple income-tax revenue, which funds government services, the partnership said in an analysis of the new tax law.
The study showed that a typical family of four that earns $175,000 in the city will pay 25 percent of its income in taxes, compared with 14 percent for the same family in Florida.
A Florida single resident making $10 million gets $227,619 in tax relief, while the same earner in New York gets socked with a $257,177 tax hike because of the loss of state and local tax deductions.
Economic-development officials in Palm Beach County — home of President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago club — are salivating.
“The new Trump tax law is helping with our recruiting. New York is taxing the rich. Palm Beach is rolling out the red carpet,” said Kelly Smallridge, head of the Palm Beach County’s Business Board.

The answer for for the Big 3 northeast governors (NY, NJ, Ct) is to try and devise schemes like “charitable taxes” to fight back.  Two of them are talking about raising taxes!

We suggest you might want try reducing taxes.
By the way, what services do you miss when visiting Florida or Texas that those three states offer?
