In an interview with, Rubin did not hold back on his reasons for the move.

“This camel’s back has been breaking for a long time,” Rubin said.

“Gavin Newsom is an unbearable tyrant, who dared to extend his emergency powers and then immediately take a $200,000 vacation,” he added. “Then he was just on The View promoting his children’s book… what emergency? And the people seem to want more of this.”

In his video announcement, Rubin said, “We have the top marginal income tax rate in the country, 7% sales tax, our gas tax is 50 cents, and now they’re trying to push through a retroactive tax, an exit tax for rich California residents who leave.”

Rubin also said, “They want to tax you for leaving. They stole all that stuff from you and now they want more because you make the decision to leave. California is the most regulated state in the country, with L.A. being probably the most-regulated city in the state.”
