Chris Dodd Still Hates Small Business In His Final Days As Senator

Senator Chris Dodd still hates those in small business. His two votes today in the Senate against the repeal of the utterly ridiculous small business 1099 form reporting of information requirements for payments of $600 or more to corporations. This 1099 reporting was hidden in the socialist Obamacare health care bill. Dodd voted against Senator Johanns's amendment and Senator Baucus's repeal amendment. Chris Dodd can still do damage to the businesses of Connecticut in his final days as Senator. He once again has proven his ineptness and his anti-business stance. From his economically illogical finance reform bill to the passing of socialized health care, to the countless other economic blunders he has made a Senator, good bye and good riddance Chris Dodd.

Chris Dodd Will Never Get It

Chris Dodd will never get it, here is my last correspondence I received from him. What has he really done for us? And he never came clean on all of his sweetheart deals, what a debacle. It is nice to know he does not have to be bothered representing the people of Connecticut any more in his last days as a Senator. Good bye and good riddance Chris Dodd.

Mr. Robert Swick
Wallingford, CT 06492

Dear Mr. Swick:

Thank you for your recent letter. It was a pleasure to hear from you. At this point in time, my office has begun closing down in preparation for my retirement from the United States Senate. As a result, I suggest that you send any future inquiries, comments or concerns to my colleague, Senator Joe Lieberman and my successor, Senator-elect Richard Blumenthal, when he takes office. Nevertheless, I appreciate your thoughtful correspondence, and would like to pass along my sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity to serve our state and nation.

I am extremely proud of the incredible things that we have accomplished during the current Congress and over the last thirty years on behalf of the people of Connecticut. None of it would have been possible without the dedicated engagement of Connecticut's residents sharing their points of view, opinions, and ideas on how I could best serve our state. We may not have always agreed on every issue, but it was important for me to hear from you and I appreciate your input.

Throughout my tenure in the Senate, I have been honored to work with my colleagues to enhance the lives of Connecticut residents by protecting consumers, strengthening the quality of life of children and families, improving our national security and relations abroad, and delivering federal support for our state's needs. This work will continue in the good hands of Senator Lieberman, Senator-Elect Blumenthal, as well as Representatives DeLauro, Larson, Courtney, Murphy, and Himes.

Once again, I would like to express my appreciation for your correspondence. Over the years, the stories I have heard from Connecticut residents like you on these and numerous other issues have inspired and guided my work. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve, and best wishes.

Are We That Much Safer Flying?

Are we that much safer when we fly? The new debacle of the TSA with xray body scans and rough pat downs really make us that much safer when we fly? Where is the evidence and proof? Why are law abiding, tax paying United States citizens subject to this kind of harassment? Wasn't the old system actually working since we did not have any issues since 9/11? Why does the governmental bureaucracy once again displace common sense?
And why are we not updating our air traffic controlling radar to the most advanced means possible instead of the out-of-date system that continues to exist in 2010? Because of union lobbying?

Many questions but once again little or no response from this administration and its political hacks. Do I feel safer flying with this invasion of my privacy? No. Political corruption, bureaucracy, and inefficiencies all have replaced common sense when flying. And it will only make our resistance stronger to our government's invasions of personal freedoms and liberties that this administration has taken away since 2009.

Connecticut's False Election

How was Connecticut's Governors race decided? How was it legal? Why was our state constitution violated and our rule of law violated? How was it legal to extend the voting hours and then notify voters? Why weren't enough ballots ordered? Why weren't the ballots left in a secured place? Why were bags of ballots discovered a few days later? All Democrat ballots?
The sham that was Connecticut's election really needs to be investigated. But we all know that since it benefited the Democrats there is no need to look into it. We can just cover up this fraud and forget about it. We also know that if it was the Republicans who had the advantage there would be no certification of the election. If that was the case we know there would be enough Democrat votes found to change the election.
Mr. Malloy was not elected with a majority, if he did not have the mythical Working Families party line he would have lost the election. And why a candidate is allowed to be on two party lines is beyond me. All Connecticut voters and taxpayers need to keep in mind the power of a recall election. For we are facing four more years of poor government in Hartford. Recall.

Inflation And Energy

What is inflation? Inflation is a general increase in the price level. It can be felt in certain segments in our economy or across the board, a large jump in the prices of all consumer goods and services. In my economic opinion we are seeing a large increase in energy prices for a variety of reasons. The reasons are the same since 1973. It is inflation pure and simple. It would be nice that in the last 37 years since the first energy crisis in 1973 that we had a comprehensive plan to drill and refine oil in our country, to lower the amount of dollars that must go to OPEC for our oil and to show some stabilization for heating oil consumers especially here in the Northeast. But we have the same comical policies which have hindered our energy policy and independence every year now since 1973. And we will hear all the political talk of new drilling, alternative energy and the list goes on.
But the energy consumer will be paying much more over the next few months. All because our elected officials are clueless when it comes to the economics laws of energy.

Higher Taxes Solve Everything In Connecticut

I do not envy Dan Malloy. Sliding in with little majority and by the help of the mythical Working Families Party, Malloy bought his Governorship. And with it is the continuing mandate of the Connecticut Democratic Super Majority of another four years of anti-business policies, higher taxes, higher governmental spending, more unfunded mandates, more unfunded and higher union pensions for Connecticut taxpayers. Governor Malloy must now embrace every big spending liberal program that will be coming from his fellow Democratic Super Majority in both chambers. Tax and spend, spend and tax for the next four years. There will be no end in sight to higher taxes and spending, while the Democratic Super Majority will state that they inherited the economic mess from the previous administration even though they have been in control for too many years now.
Over the next four years more Connecticut residents will be voting with their feet and our economic situation will continue to deteriorate.
Buckle up taxpayers, here comes more taxes and more spending with 50% of the voting public yearning for something different like leadership. Let us all start voting with our feet.
