Radio and television host Sean Hannity is threatening to leave New York after comments from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo saying pro-life conservatives have no place in New York.

On his radio show, which can be hear here on 710 KEEL starting at 2 p.m. CT, Hannity talked about how he wants to leave his home state.

Now I want to tell you something – I was born and raised in New York.  I want you to know that and I can’t wait to get out of here. I really can’t. I don’t want to pay their 10-percent state tax anymore. I live in the second-highest property taxed county in the entire country in Nassau County. I can’t wait to sell my house to somebody who wants it. I can’t wait to pay no state income tax down in Florida or Texas. I haven’t decided yet, but I’m leaning Florida because I like the water and I like to fish.

He also noted the economic impact him leaving New York would have stating he hosts two shows that both employ a large number of people.

Gov. Cuomo, I’m going to leave and I’m taking all of my money with me – every single solitary penny,” he added. “And by the way governor, because I work here – there’s a whole bunch of people that work for me and benefit because I do two shows. And I guess maybe some of them will be out of work, governor. I’m sure you’ll take care of them.

Since 2010, the Census Bureau estimates New York state’s population has only grown 1.4%, compared to 2.4% nationally.  In that same time period, Florida has grown 4% and Texas has grown 5.2%.
