Taxes and Connecticut go hand in hand. Our one party dictatorship in Hartford seems never to have enough money to spend. Money to spend on laws and programs approved by special interest lobbying groups who pay their way in our Legislature. Money to spend for layer upon layer of important and economically inefficient state jobs. Money to spend for unlimited social welfare programs. Money to spend for unlimited corporate welfare (but for only who lobby for it-not for small business owners). The list they love to spend taxpayer's money on is endless. It is like to the point of no return or possibly now chronic budget deficits both long and short term.
The next tax brainstorm coming out of one party rule is to bring back tolls. I remember tolls very well. I used to avoid them at all costs driving on Route 1 at all times when I used to live in North Branford. Tolls were mainly on I-95 in Madison, Branford, West Haven, Stratford, and several other spots on the highway. It was ridiculous. And then something happened-people died at the tolls in Stratford and the actual outcry forced the state to eliminate them. Thus we have no tolls in Connecticut. Lives were actually saved.
But all that can change. And our dictatorship is chomping at the bit to bring them back. This new revenue source would help them to spend even more money. It would be a windfall for Hartford to tax and spend even more than they do already. And look at all of the unionized politically connected jobs they could create with tolls! It would definitely be a win-win for our one party rule.
Thus if it moves tax it, if it is lobbied enact it and if it slams our taxpayers even more just do it.
There is no regard whatsoever for taxpayers in Connecticut from our one party rule in Hartford.
Taxes and Connecticut go hand in hand. Our one party dictatorship in Hartford seems never to have enough money to spend. Over and over again. What a waste of an economy.
