I don't blame him for being upset, I am as well.

However I don't do things like threaten to stop working, or quit my job though.

Who is he threatening...he's self employed. Threaten to move? Yeah.

Careful...he'll shoot.

Picking on Panthro with that statement. He threatened in another thread to quit his job if he didn't get a 25% pay raise if his boss put him on the government healthcare (that he supported) and cancelled the private policy.

It was a joke.

I said I wouldn't stay and would find another job.. Thanks for making me sound as dramatic as Mickelson though

Not sure I'd call what Phil said "dramatic"... the potential for moving across the country is what I would consider "drastic" as he said. Although for a guy of his wealth not nearly as drastic as others...

I think what he's saying is that the tax rates have caused him to have to say "hey, I may have to change some things in my life, and possibly move to another state..." No matter your wealth that's potentially a pretty big deal.

Looked to me like the guy that wrote the article was the one making it dramatic.

Wouldn't stay, and quitting are the same...no?

Financially it doesn't make sense in this case for him to just quit (which he won't), but if there's any debate on how excessive taxation is a demotivator, I understand the point he's making.
