Since 2006, Over a Million Californians Have Left the State

More than half of California’s registered voters have considered leaving the state, and 40 percent of that number represents Republicans or conservatives, according to a study by the University of California, Berkeley.

Conservatives and Republicans surveyed mentioned the state’s expensive housing, high taxes, and liberal political culture as their primary reasons for wanting to leave California, according to the September study conducted for the Los Angeles Times.

“We’re moving to redder pastures,” former California resident and conservative Judy Stark, 71, told the Times. “We’re getting with people who believe in the same political agenda that we do: America first, Americans first, law and order.”

California liberals and Democrats are three times more likely than Republican and conservative residents to describe the state as “one of the best places” to live, the study found.

More than 1 million California residents have moved out of the state since 2006, the Times reported citing a 2018 report from the California Legislative Analyst’s Office. About 63,000 Californians moved to Texas in 2017, according to the Times, citing a 2019 relocation study by Texas Realtors.

In the last 10 years, California welcomed 100,000 new residents with household incomes of $120,000 or higher – 85 percent of which moved to the Bay Area, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office report.

2 million Mexicans have replaced them.

And your point is?

Oh, and $100k in San Francisco is near poverty.

$120K in the bay area? Isn't that well below the poverty line?

I am betting a lot more than a million bailed out - and yes, they were replaced 3X by sanctuary illegals

100k is enough to live off in the San Francisco Bay Area.

For the last fuqing time, 100k is enough to live off in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I’m not talking about “two people making 100k each splitting a studio”, I mean single breadwinner supporting a partner in San Francisco itself. No bonuses, no windfalls, no inheritance, no tax tricks, no stock options, no 401k match, just 100k a year salary and an adult dependent. Let’s crunch some numbers.

I don't know about you but I would love to live in a studio apartment!

There are places in the city under $2,500, but lets assume you spend $3k a month: $36k a year in housing. $100k – $36k = $64k remaining. While this number cries out for roommates or a longer commute, I will assume you shelter 100% of the dreaded SF rent just so I can shut people up who claim it is impossible or think that sharing a kitchen and bathroom is a fate worse than death.

Total income taxes (federal, state, & city) for a single person earning 100k in SF who contributes the maximum $18k a year to their 401k is $28k. (It would be $1.5k cheaper if you were married!) $64k – (18k + 28k) = $18k remaining.

My expenses have been particularly high in the last 6 months because I’ve been supporting two of my roommates. Thankfully they’re employed now but lets look mostly at my last 6 months of expenses as a benchmark and extrapolate out to 1 year. I track and tag all of my expenses in Mint so this is easy to do quickly and accurately.

Over the last 6 months I’ve been buying groceries for 3 people. I’ve spent $4k between groceries and eating out. I’m not going to lie, an awful lot of that was booze. This house drinks. Shyt, this house is drinking right now. $10k remaining.

Over the last 6 months I’ve used Lyft almost every day: 123 times, in fact. I’ve spent under $1k. I always tip my driver. I also never throw newborn kittens off of bridges. I don't understand how these things are so hard for some people. For simplicity lets assume your spouse spends as much on transport as you do. $6k remaining.

$360 / year for my smart phone. $600 / year for internet. Around $2k / year for other utilities. 3k remaining.

I’ve spent $2k year to date in various other ways: vacation, video games, furniture, a surprisingly & embarrassingly expensive patio-garden, museums, clothes, etc. Healthcare costs anywhere from ~$0 to >$infinity in the US so lets just assume it eats the rest of the budget. $0 remaining.

I'd gladly take three Mexicans for every racist Bagger.

Count us as having bailed out. It wasn't so much the cost of living - but it is much less costly here.  It was the deterioration of life.  Zombie bums, shyt and needles in the streets, car break ins, assaults on the street, rude and arrogant people.  Extreme taxes and regulations.
