New York City is becoming land of the flee because people want some space and a little bit morefreedom, actor Dean Cain told Fox & Friends on Monday.

Cain made the comment afterthe New York Post reported on Sunday that moving companies can barely keep up with the New York City residents who are fleeing the city so fast because of the pandemic and deteriorating quality of life in the Big Apple.

Perry Chance of Show Up movers reportedly told The Post on Sunday that even though the company has four of its own trucks, they had to start using U-Haul trucks as well to meet the demand.

The volume has increased by at least 70 percent in the past few months, he reportedly added, noting that 25 percent of the companys customers are heading from New York City to states such as Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Cain said he thinks Democratic leadership is to blame for the mass exodus.

In response, Cain, who went to school in New Jersey, noted that he has most recently lived inCalifornia and never in my lifetime did I everthink I would leave Malibu,Calif.

I, for the first time ever amconcerned, if this election goesthe wrong way, I'm concernedabout living here in Californiaand am actually considering leavingfor the first time in my lifetime, Cain continued.So I'd like to believe it's justa blip, however things havegotten so out of control here.

He went on to point out that interms of taxes, it's insane herein California and we're just doing such a poor jobof governing that.

When I go tovisit other states sometimes Igo, Wow itd be awful nice to live hereand save an additional hugeamount of money and have a lot morefreedoms and, hmm, maybe I wouldconsider that so I hope it's ablip, but I fear it's not, Cain said.
