If you don't like a law like Obamacare, you cannot flee to another state. If you don't like the state income tax of a state like New York, you can migrate to Texas, example. If the Federal gov't decided the state income tax nationwide, which they'd love to do, there would be no escape.

True and that sounds right in a way, but then you can look at things differently and find good and bad. For example if the Federal defined a state income tax nationwide, then you wouldn't have companies uprooting 1000's moving state to state for the next sweetheart deal. That would actually be good to stabilize families. Not saying that is right or not, but a way to see a benefit if there was one state tax. It's actually complex and costly doing business in the US. In business in many ways it's like 50 different companies. While most other countries its just the country. Canada with much less providences than the US has states, it's still pretty complex dealing with them as they have some serious variances between the providences.

We don't have a federally mandated state tax now and the relocation of companies is not huge deal. Companies, states, and people SHOULD have the autonomy to set taxes and decide where they wish to locate. It's called freedom. To impose such a tax is dictocratic and robs us of our liberties.

You're almost making my case for me. If government is complex, that's government's fault and our fault partially for electing corrupt politicians. My argument is for moving away from that.
