In actuality it might be beneficial to Oregon if the richest 1% did move... while their taxes represent somewhere around 20-30% of the state's revenue, they also have the most volatile incomes so that in a downturn the state ends up with a large revenue gap. If they all left, the state would have to raise the lost revenue on the rest of us, but the revenue stream might be more stable.
