Are people leaving upstate NY because of the weather? Cuomo takes heat for comments

ALBANY - Maybe it's the weather.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking heat for comments Tuesday that upstate's winter weather has factored into the state's population loss in the region.

"More people are leaving upstate net? Yes. People will make demographic choices about where they want to live," Cuomo told reporters after an economic-development speech to the state Business Council.
When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.

No they are leaving NY/NJ/CT because of the cost of living and taxes. And seniors are moving to Florida, Arizona and other sunny states.
G-d bless America. G-d bless us all
