Jordan Poyer has played a crucial role for the Buffalo Bills in each season since 2021. Now, however, he’ll soon be a free agent and so could be moving out of New York. If he does get an opportunity to move out of the high-tax, high-crime state, it sure sounds like he will, as he’s furious about how taxes work.
That came during a recent episode of his show, during which he said:
“A lot of people ask me, ‘Oh, if it wasn’t Buffalo, where would you go?’ I kind of ponder the question every once in a while. I would love to go to a state that doesn’t take half my money. It’s crazy to me how taxes work. Some people will say, ‘You’re already making X amount of money.’ Taxes play a big part in all of our lives.”
“I would love to go to a state that doesn’t take half my money… It would be nice to see the sun, maybe, every week or so.”

After playing for the Buffalo Bills, who play in New York, Poyer is no stranger to a high income tax. In fact, in a recent article, CNBC ranks New York as the state with the highest tax burden. Poyer may become the next in many residents in high-tax states that move to states with a lower income tax, such as Florida or Texas. To add flames to the rumors, Poyer also said this:
“If it wasn’t Buffalo, it’d be nice to see the sun.”
That sure sounds like Texas and Florida to me. The Blaze wrote about the increasing amount of people who are fleeing New York to move to Florida, saying the following:
“Many people over the last months and years have taken exactly this advice, fleeing New York’s oppressive, anti-business climate and crime rates for the greener pastures of Florida and other states. According to the Census Bureau, New York had the highest population decline of any state in the union in 2022, while Florida had the highest rate of population growth.”
“…In recent years, there have been many reasons for New Yorkers to leave the state, including some of the harshest coronavirus pandemic response measures in the country (responses that severely damaged New York’s economy but did not slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state), high corporate and personal tax rates, its regularly poor ratings in personal and business freedom, and the disastrous tenure of former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, which saw many New Yorkers flee the city in particular.”
And it’s not just New York that has gotten hammered thanks to high taxes, high crime, and high regulation. California has too, as Reform California reported, saying:
The mass exodus from California continues! According to data recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau more than 340,000 people left the state of California in 2022.
The population loss is happening even though California is a Sanctuary State and is openly encouraging illegal immigrants to enter in record numbers. The data shows despite the flood of illegal immigrants into the state last year, citizens of California are still fleeing in greater numbers – resulting in “net migration.”
Carl DeMaio, Chairman of Reform California, blames a wide-range of bad policies imposed by the state’s Democrat Super-Majority.
“In just the past three years, the data shows millions of citizens have fled California because of high taxes, costly government mandates, surging crime, failing schools, and filthy streets filled with homeless camps,” DeMaio says.
“The only thing that masks the record-breaking departures from California is the fact that state politicians are trying to get as many illegal immigrants into the state to replace every citizen that is fleeing – but even with California being a Sanctuary State we still see net migration because living conditions in the state really have really become that bad,” DeMaio notes.
