New Yorkers voting with their feet

People are leaving New York state in droves because of the lack decent jobs and ridiculously high taxes.

As a byproduct of the "Keane-drain", New York will be losing two of it's Congressmen in 2013. For Western New York, this means either Brian Higgins, Chris Lee, or Louise Slaughter will be out of a job. I guess it's true: every dark cloud does have a silver lining.
