One of the things that comes up if they're gonna go to California it's taxes how much more you gonna pay me to be in the state of California it's a big discussion with.
All the states to -- with California and I also a little bit in New York.
But they talk about taxes that's never happened before so a sports -- Los Angeles -- for example the -- to attract -- stop picture for example that you -- play over the market -- because their gonna pay over a lot of money in taxes when that -- account -- -- Californians without any question that's exactly what -- then also -- the overall market so when other people negotiate we're gonna go to other places where there's no taxes that that comes into because they always -- what other players -- -- -- other cities.

High tax states losing population to know all low -- State's right to migration is -- -- migrations was going on in into when this happens one other thing of course it puts more pressure on the older people who live there to come up with the money to pay the bills for the tactic for for those taxes so now we have a ripple effect when people leave to put more pressure on the people who -- which means their tax it's gonna go higher.
It's a ripple effect and it's gonna get really ugly you have California governor Jerry Brown has everything's fine -- -- -- sort of sort of Obama look at our GDP number well only the governor is on the Fantasy Island for us that the director had but -- -- you welcome vaccine against Sinatra that you have.
