Why doesn't he tell New Jersey to raise the taxes on his company by 15% of its revenue and use that money for the citizens of New Jersey?

Wouldn't that be an easy solution?

Because he's just another hypocrite. Peel back the layers on most, if not all, millionaires and you will find that they are a HUGE do as I say not as I do group. Just like Buffet telling everyone that they need to pay their fair share when he does everything possible not to. Same thing with Gates saying we need to be employing more Americans while he does whatever he can do to hire mainly foreigners.

No, bc it wouldn't apply to all the other corporations, only his. Thus it would solve nothing.

Sorry, poor wording on my part.

Why not have NJ raise taxes on companies in NJ, and use that money for NJ citizens?

How would a state legislature pass taxes on one single individual? I don't even think that would pass constitutional muster.
