Jeffrey Gundlach may have had enough of the Golden State.



The billionaire Doubleline Capital chief executive officer, based out of Los Angeles, floated the idea on Twitter TWTR, +1.62% this weekend of leaving California to “escape incompetent governance”

As for Gundlach, if he decides to take the leap, it appears from his tweet that the move will be in reaction to the prospect of higher taxes in California, where lawmakers have proposed hiking the top rate to 16.8% from 13.3% for those earning over $5 million.
