While Detroit is the poster child of liberal failure at the city-level, New York is the perfect example of failure at the state-level. While the Empire State has not gone bankrupt, the statistics of the state indicate that progressive fiscal policies do not help the poor or the middle-class. People are leaving the state in droves.

The numbers don’t lie. Try showing this article to your liberal friends. If they’re open-minded, these statistics could significantly change their political views.
I have nothing against New York. After all, my family is based from the Empire State. The Big Apple is one of the greatest cities in the world. I am just suggesting that Albany needs to change. People should vote in favor of pro-free market lawmakers that support cutting taxes and streamlining regulations. Implementing such fiscal policies could help stop so many people from leaving the state.
Instead of complaining about income inequality, lawmakers should focus on social mobility. Instead of attacking CEOs, elected officials should propose fiscal policies that help provide economic opportunities for people to improve their socioeconomic background. A more favorable business climate will make it easier to start a business and find a job. Albany needs a change of fiscal policy and it won’t happen until the voters change their attitude.
