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.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

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.
