16. You are wondering if the taxpayers will pay less for their products?

I guess you re joking around.

Maybe twenty years ago, my dad remarked that once Oscar Myers hot dogs moved south of the border, he found really good deals on lunch meat with the brand for about a year. Then the prices went right backup to where they had been.

Also other s here have stated that California only gets 73 cents back for every dollar it has paid to the Federal Government via taxes. Californians pay a lot in taxes for many reasons. Many people who would own homes in other states don't do that here in Califronia, or else they don't do it until they inherit from their parents. Costs are just too high. So the mortgage deductions don't get used as much.

Then there are 37 million of us, and that has a big impact as well. (You probably know all of this already.)
