Many of the companies he bought and reorganized would not be in business today without his intervention. They were probably bloated with management, stale, money losing operations, and loaded with inefficiencies. Is it better to cut off an arm and the body live or just let the whole body die? It is business folks, not a social gathering.

And many of the folks moving from high tax states will come here, vote the way they did before, and change this state from a low tax state to a high tax state. We nearly had a governor that wanted to impose a sales tax. Just saying
