Nunes: CA's Gold Rush Has Been Reversed

One of California's shining stars in the House of Representatives is Congressman Devin Nunes, who took to the pages of the Wall Street Journal this past week to crisply describe what ails California and outline a series of bold reform proposals to stem the outflow of people and talent from our state as an increasing number of citizens seek opportunities elsewhere.

When I attend meetings of the Republican National Committee, my fellow counterparts from states like Idaho, Arizona and Nevada let me know how their newest residents – Californians – are now doing.

Congressman Nunes puts it this way: "After more than 150 years of being a destination, California is becoming a place entrepreneurs, investment capital and the hardy workers who made it a global leader in agriculture, technological innovation and scientific research are fleeing. This exodus is the marker of something deeper than a national recession. It's a sign that the attempts by state leaders to spend their way back to prosperity are killing California."

He's right, of course. Higher taxes, onerous regulations and an atmosphere of big government is diverting the flow of investment and people elsewhere "just as a fallen tree can divert the flow of water in a creek."

Congressman Nunues backs up his findings with solid facts, and describes an agenda for reform. Read the article: California's Gold Rush Has Been Reversed.
