I used to be shocked to learn (in The Los Angeles Occasions) that the Biden administration’s “position mannequin for America” is… California! He desires to “Make America California.”
That is is a horrible concept.
Californians now rush to maneuver out of California.
Some hopeful of us nonetheless transfer there, however so many extra depart that California now loses greater than 10,000 residents each month. Actually, the state will quickly lose a congressional seat.
Why do Californians depart? “Exorbitant tax charges, excessive crime charges, the failing public college techniques, the exorbitant value of residing,” says reporter Kristen Tate in my new video.
So many Californians transfer away that there is now even a scarcity of U-Hauls. Renting one to go from Los Angeles to Houston prices 4 instances as a lot because it does to go from Houston to LA.
“Persons are simply emptying out!” says Tate.
However this appears loopy. California has nice climate and every kind of pure benefits.
The state’s politicians drive folks away with dangerous insurance policies.
Requested by Stossel TV whether or not it is a dangerous concept for President Joe Biden to “make the U.S. extra like California,” Governor Gavin Newsom’s workplace replied with an announcement saying, “Earlier than the COVID pandemic, California noticed job development and report low unemployment.”
Oh, it was a report for California. Earlier than the pandemic, the state’s unemployment was twelfth worst in America. Now, it is third worst.
The assertion continues, “We stay the fifth largest financial system on the earth… house to twenty of Fortune’s quickest rising corporations.”
However that solely means California was hospitable to enterprise years in the past. Now Oracle, Tesla and lots of different corporations are shifting operations to different states.
An enormous purpose is California’s onerous laws. They make it onerous to create something new. It is also a purpose housing prices a lot.
California handed a legislation elevating its minimal wage from $13 to $15/hr. That is one purpose many Californians cannot discover any authorized work.
A advantage of America having 50 states is that when states fail, we are able to be taught from their errors. Folks defeated by California’s guidelines transfer to Nevada or Texas. But when the federal authorities adopts California’s guidelines, the place can we transfer?
The Congressional Funds Workplace says a nationwide $15 minimal wage will assist some folks, however it’s going to value 1.4 million jobs.
But, Biden desires the upper minimal.
Biden’s plan for America additionally features a new model of Money for Clunkers, the absurd program that when paid folks to junk previous vehicles. California has its personal model, which the state claims helps cut back emissions.
“However a lot of the vehicles that have been turned in weren’t even actively registered,” says Tate. “It means they in all probability have been simply going to be scrapped anyway! These packages are failures… however they make environmentalists really feel good.”
Like California’s “clear power” guidelines. How lengthy till all American motorists pay the $4/gallon Californians pay? Or the $7 folks pay in Norway and Denmark?
Biden additionally picked a number of Californians for his administration.
When Vice President Kamala Harris was San Francisco’s district legal professional, she oversaw 1,900 convictions for pot offenses. But, she’s since joked about her personal marijuana use. When the Biden administration fired staffers for utilizing marijuana prior to now, Harris was spared.
“Sadly, there’s been a development within the Biden administration of giving jobs to individuals who may verify (race and gender) containers,” says Tate. “However they’ve horrendous monitor information.”
Biden made Alejandro Mayorkas America’s new secretary of Homeland Safety although he was cited by the inspector common for pressuring his employees to approve visas for politically highly effective Democrats.
“In authorities, you all the time fail up,” complains Tate.
The LA Occasions wrote that Biden would not nominate California Labor Secretary Julie Su as a result of “rampant ranges of fraud scuttled (her) prospects.” Biden then made her deputy secretary of labor.
“If we make America California,” concludes Tate, “we’re all going to be paying for it.”
A minimum of Californians can transfer to different states.
However I do not wish to depart America.
