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.

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.

I'm going to type this out really slowly.

I would find another job.

I never said anything about walking out or outright quitting.

Yeesh.

The amount of time it would take to break even from quitting and finding another job with the desired pay increase vs staying on board until another job was secured.

Lets say I was making $4k a month and my benefits were cut and was seeking $5k now.

If I quit my job like Fuzz said I said I would be losing out on the $4k per month. 6 months later I secured a job that paid me $5k. It would take me 2 years to break even on that move.

or compare if I continued working for $4k and found the same job for $5K in 6 months.

comprende?

I think you're getting a tad too deep there...

You WOULD quit your job, but you're saying you'd just find another one first... well, duh. We're not all Phil Mickelson.

btw, I typed that really slowly.

It was fuzz who drove me into detail.

I felt like I had to break it down to the ridiculous for him to comprehend.
