    New York lost two congressional seats to reapportionment. But not because of decline in the NYC population. Ours went up. All the decline occured in the upstate low tax counties.

    So in our case, its moving from low tax places to other low tax plcaes, which, as you say, probably has absolutely nothing to do with money.

    •  "Low tax"? (0+ / 0-)

      Compared to the city, no argument, but as an absolute ... are you serious? The moaning and groaning of our local Repubs notwithstanding, I could very easily lower my tax bill by moving to Pennsylvania (granted, not Connecticut).
