Cynthia Nixon Doesn’t Believe High Taxes Will Drive Corporations, Rich People out of New York
NIXON: "So, I think that wealthy individuals have the liberty of choosing where they want to live. And if high taxes were the thing that were going to make wealthy people move, we wouldn’t have so many wealthy people in New York. We wouldn’t have so many wealthy people in California. But when you talk about businesses, about being a business friendly environment, one of the main things that businesses care about is having an educated workforce. And in order to do that, we really need to invest in education. The other thing that businesses really care about is infrastructure. And we’ve so divested not only from our New York City subway but from our roads and our transportation in general. If we want to create jobs for New Yorkers, investing in infrastructure is the most effective way to do it and it’s a way to prepare our state for the future and make it more business friendly."
