Now, speaking of taxes: I mentioned to someone in Nevada about how I'll pay less California tax under these circumstances and he said, "Yeah, they tax you to death there."
I said, "Well, yes, but you get more services, too, like better public transportation."
He said, "It would easy to be better than what we have here!" And this is someone living in Reno-Sparks, which actually does have a public bus system. I got the impression he thought there should be better public transport.
"You get what you pay for," I said, "And we don't pay for much. That's why the only way you can get to Reno from Fernley is by private vehicle or a $100 one-way taxi ride. Not even Greyhound stops there, and I assume they won't unless someone pays a subsidy for them to stop their Reno-Salt Lake City buses there."
