New York Policies of the Democrats
What the New York Democrats and their donors are bringing to Virginia

New York is the 3rd largest U.S. state economy and would rank 10th in the world if it were a separate country. It has more economic output than all of Canada.

New Yorkers are leaving because of quality of life issues caused by government policy.  Established residents don't uproot their families and disrupt their lives without strong motivation.

 

"The costly living expenses, crumbling infrastructure and high tax rates are a big problem for residents. If you live in NYC, you are forced to pay exorbitant taxes. The schools, bridges, tunnels, trains, airports and hospitals are falling apart. Casually walk the streets of NYC and you’ll notice that they are crowded and dirty. It's likely that you’ll see or be confronted by homeless people who clearly display symptoms of serious yet untreated mental or physical issues. The politicians running the city feel that it's more humane to let them to live on the streets, as opposed to being treated in appropriate facilities. The crime rate has risen." Sept 2019, Forbes

"The escape from New York is fueled not only by coronavirus concerns but economic worries, school chaos, and rising crime, experts say."  - Nov 2020, Fox Business

It is important that Virginians understand the policies and political environment of the New York Democrats influencing and funding Virginia politics.
