(UnitedVoice.com) – California is one of the states with the highest taxes and the strictest COVID-19 restrictions in the country. People have started leaving the state en masse as housing prices rise, jobs are lost, and the Democratic leadership tries to squeeze more money out of its residents. So many people have moved out, it may cost the state dearly.
According to reports, the state is set to lose both a House seat and Electoral College elector when the 2020 Census data is in. The California Department of Finance reported a net loss of 40,036 people from July 1, 2019 to July 1, 2020. It’s not average people either, Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, left the state recently and moved to the more tax-friendly Texas.
"The Golden State, long seen as a beacon of opportunity, has become a more difficult and less attractive place in which to live, pay the rent, buy a house and do business."

The state definitely needs change. The Democratic Party is destroying what used to be a beautiful, friendly place to live. Losing a congressional seat is bad enough, but what happens when it’s not just people fleeing, it’s businesses as well? How will the overtaxed and overcharged people of the state afford to live?
