This is taxation without representation.
You need a refresher course on what those words mean. If you live in New York, you will be taxed. Also if you live in New York, you have politicians who represent you, or at least pretend to do so every time they come up for re-election. This is clearly NOT a case of taxation without representation. If you don't like how you're being represented, vote against the incumbents in the next election.
Torque is cheap.
