A recent Op-Ed in the New York Post by John Faso, discusses the shrinking population in New York State and its implications for the future.
Faso surmises that New Yorkers are fleeing the state — most famously Rush Limbaugh — because of high taxes and dismal job prospects. Our state is nearly bankrupt and has been increasingly burdensome and hostile to businesses in recent years. The population decline means a loss of two more seats in the House of Representatives. More importantly, this means that New York is no longer as powerful as it has been in terms of policy.
Faso reminds us about the challenges we as New Yorkers face and what we can do to surmount them.
