Taxes in California Too High for Tiger, Too

Well, duh:

Tiger Woods said today that the reason he left California in the mid-Nineties was because the state’s taxes were too high.

The golfer spoke at a press conference on Tuesday about his decision to move to Florida in 1996. 

Speaking at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California, Woods said: ‘I moved out of here back in ’96 for that reason.’

I guess the president only listens to Tiger on how to read a green, not economic policy.
