Lowest vs highest taxed cities



Thought this might be telling. Higher taxes usually = higher unemployment with a few exceptions. Nobody worry about unemployment as long as those filthy, greedy rich are paying their fair share. This is more correlation than cause and effect, but logic would dictate that taxing more doesn't lead to "progress."

re: Lowest vs highest taxed cities


Of course the arguments were made in the body of the piece. They immediately point out that the higher taxes were in larger cities that cost more to run... really? Why do they cost more? Do roads and bridges really cost more to upkeep and develop in NY than in Houston? No it's government largesse that costs more and draws in people who want a nanny state. It is a horrible combo of low productivity (in most cases) that leads to spiraling unemployment and inefficient bureaucracy. Gotta love progress.

Income gap =/= unfair!!!

The poor are living better and with more than ever despite that growing income gap. Libs need to find a better line. Unfortunately, all of the nanny statists just fall in line.

So a couple a million people paying taxes should spread the pain around easier than say Sioux Falls with what 100K population base, so why would the taxes be so much higher?

Urban planners argue that suburban sprawl is too expensive and cities like Baton Rouge need to constrict so infrastructure costs will go down.

Now someone is saying that highly dense cities are MORE expensive to run?

It doesn't add up.

I'd think that the more dense a city was, the cheaper it would be to provide basic services.

I hate these formats where you have to click through. There's no reason why everything can't be on one page.

your assumption leaves out an important variable though - who is living in the space.
