Really should there be any union concessions in Hartford? Why bother? A drop dead offer and vote is agreed upon and now both sides need to save political face. This is occurring while taxes have increased to one of the highest levels in the country, people are still moving out of the state, and taxpayers have been completely disrespected through this whole sham of a negotiation process.
It is tough to remind our one party rule in Hartford that there is more to the state economy than state union workers. It is tough to remind our one party rule in Hartford that taxpayers who actually work for a living are supporting this current economic debacle called state government. It is tough to remind our one party rule in Hartford that they are the cause of this fiscal crisis through their ineptness in governing.
Thus the only concessions that occurred in Hartford were by state taxpayers who now must pay more to support both a totalitarian union and state one party rule government. What a great agreement for us!
