Do you think low or no taxed states suffer from inadequate police and fire protection, badly run schools , little to no senior services, etc?

    Depends on how the state allocates the money that they DO collect. With less tax revenue cuts have to be made. Whether that's infrastructure, schools, services, teacher's salaries or state worker pensions odds are one of them is cut, and the other is lacking.

    California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and the other blue states with high taxes enjoy some of the best schools and funded governments.

    Wanna make your state suck? Pull a Brownback and give tax cuts to the Koch bros while your state falls apart. Guaranteed failure.

    Of course, medical can become scarce for seniors and children. Hardly any police protection or low quality police protection, fire and search and rescue is low quality and/or badly trained, trash pickup will be cut back, education in the public school system will be of lower quality and will be few and far between and the same with hospitals.

    People will move away from such a state if it's not funded for properly.

    When I lived in Florida, a state with no state income tax, and the crime was getting bad.  I researched some of the town's which used to be nice, even upscale, but now they are high crime areas, very depressing.   Many of my fellow employees in Florida worked two jobs to send their kids to private school instead of public.

    No. It just means that they have to manage their tax revenue more appropriately. I mean California has some of the highest taxes on average, and it has many of the worst schools in the whole country, worst infrastructure, worst business-friendly atmosphere, etc.

    One would think that to be logical. However, California has high taxes poor police and fire protection and certainly substandard public schools.

    Police, fire, and schools are paid with property tax.

    It sounds like what the Democrats do even if they have plenty of funding.

    The economy of California is the largest in the United States, boasting a $3.0 trillion gross state product as of 2018. As a sovereign nation (2018), California would rank as the world's fifth largest economy, ahead of India and behind Germany. The Democratic Party held power over Los Angeles since 2001.
