More Connecticut Garbage

More garbage coming out of Hartford.  It does not seem to end.

HB6550 is a beauty to come out of Hartford's One Party Rule; this section is taken out of the bill-guess who will pay these new taxes-anyone who uses heating oil or propane

Sec. 3. (NEW) (Effective July 1, 2013) (a) An excise tax per gallon of heating oil and propane, each as defined in section 1 of this act, is hereby imposed in the following amounts on the following dates, upon all persons licensed to sell such fuel under the provisions of section 16a-23m of the general statutes: (1) One and one-half cents per gallon on or after July 1, 2013, but before July 1, 2014; (2) two and one-half cents per gallon on or after July 1, 2014, but before July 1, 2015; and (3) three and one-half cents per gallon on or after July 1, 2015, provided no excise tax shall be imposed on such fuel used by vessels, railroad, utilities, farmers and the military or such fuel sold for purposes other than for residential heating or domestic hot water.

(b) Each such licensee shall, not later than the first business day of the second month next following the date on which such tax is imposed, file with the Commissioner of Revenue Services, on forms prescribed by said commissioner, a report that shall show the number of gallons of fuel in inventory as of the close of business on the date on which such tax is imposed, or at midnight of such date, and at the same time shall pay such tax based upon the total gallonage shown on such report. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection shall cooperate with the Commissioner of Revenue Services in the enforcement of this tax. Failure to file such report and pay the tax when due shall be sufficient reason to revoke any state license or permit held by such person and interest at the rate of one per cent per month or fraction thereof shall be assessed on the amount of such tax not paid when due, from the date such tax becomes due to the date of payment.

High paid lawyers in the state need not renew their licenses as evidence by Laura Jordan

Elizabeth Rowe, an attorney at the Statewide Grievance Committee, the agency that regulates the practice of law in Connecticut, said Laura Jordan has not been properly registered with the state since April 3, 2002.
“She’s not in good standing,” said Rowe.
“Laura Jordan is employed in the Office of the State Treasurer as a policy analyst, not a practicing attorney; the fact that she is not registered is irrelevant to her job responsibilities at the Treasury,” Nappier said in a statement. “Laura’s registration with the Statewide Grievance Committee is not up to date. She apologizes for this error and any confusion it has caused; Laura has contacted the committee and is working to resolve the issue expeditiously.”
Jordan has worked in numerous legal positions at the legislature, according to the Office of Legislative Management, including:
Chief counsel to the speaker, House Democrats
Chief counsel to the majority leader, House Democrats
Deputy counsel, House Democrats
Associate legislative attorney, Office of Legislative Research
Legislative attorney, Office of Legislative Research
Through Nappier’s spokesman, Jordan declined to comment.
Jordan worked as special counsel to former House Speaker Chris Donovan, D-Meriden, prior to taking the job as executive assistant for policy with Nappier’s office, a move first reported by the Courant’s Jon Lender.
Jordan was tangentially involved in the federal investigation that led to the arrest of two staffers on Donovan’s campaign for Congress, including a former boyfriend of hers, for trading legislative favors for campaign donations. She declined to participate in the interview.

Here are two examples of the massive problems that we face as taxpayers in Hartford:  excessively high taxes and excessive disregard for the law by Democrats.  And we are forced to continue to accept this garbage that comes out of Hartford.

Federal Budget Differences-Paul Ryan Wins

I am curious if Mr. Obama realizes that he needs to put forth a Federal budget each year?
Apparently he needs a few more weeks to gather his plan to raise spending and raise taxes.  From what I have been reading the Senate is actually being forced to put forth a budget after missing just the last four years in creating one.  No big deal, the excessive, bloated and wasteful Federal spending continued for the past four years with no budget.  The Senate's new proposal calls for a mere $1 trillion dollars in new taxes, does not balance the budget and will create even more spending and more National Debt.  Thus after four years this was the best the Democrats in the Senate could develop.  Amazing.
Representative Paul Ryan has developed a budget which will actually balance the budget, cut spending and reform both Medicare and Medicaid.  For those who actually understand Medicare and Medicaid one sees that they are both basically bankrupt and unsustainable in their current form.  His budget plan also defunds the economically irrational and unsustainable Obamacare health plan.  Mr. Ryan has created a monumental reform of Federal spending which in my economic opinion will actually start to address our massive budget deficits and National Debt.  Both which are economically unsustainable in their current form.
Thus the battle begins across the country.  Mr.Obama will again use taxpayers monies to travel to campaign for his plans and programs (whatever they may be?) and belittle and condemn the Republican plan.  The media in lock step with Obama will rip to shreds this economically logical budget.  And we will see more of the same.
I applaud Representative Ryan and his budget.  He sees the future and wants to address it.  He is proactive economically.  And in my economic opinion he will win with his budget, not the stale tax and spend policies/non budgets of a Democrat party who have no idea of economic reality in 2013.

Four Thoughts For Wednesday-Hartford's One Party Rule

Four Thoughts For Wednesday-enjoy:

If Hartford's One Party Rule Representative Hewett was a Republican he would have been forced to have resign over his brutal and sexist remarks-since he is a Democrat he is allowed to continue to hold office.  More of the same.  Another example of politics and liberalism at its best.  What a great two tier system!

Malloy's budget shifts his new Hartford's One Party Rule taxes to municipalities in Connecticut by cutting all sorts of funding-I guess he forgot he used to be mayor of Stamford.  Higher taxes and higher spending.  More of the same.  Another example of politics and liberalism at its best.  What a joke the state budget is!

The gun debate rages on in Hartford, what is missing in the entire debate is how Hartford's One Party Rule plans on protecting law abiding citizens from those who will still get guns illegally.  More of the same.  Another example of politics and liberalism at its best.  What a joke these new laws will be!

120,000 illegal and undocumented aliens will soon be on a path to getting driver's licenses in the state of Connecticut thanks to Martin Looney and Hartford's One Party Rule.  The proposed law which has the blessings of Hartford's One Party Rule will allow these illegals the ability to get licenses in the state.  The argument is that it will make our roads safer, supposedly save $20 million in insurance costs, etc.  I am wondering what part of illegal does Hartford's One Party Rule not understand?  Maybe when get their licenses they can register to vote, be given free medical care by the state, etc.  Maybe legal citizen taxpayers should stop paying their legal taxes if this law goes into effect.  More of the same.  Another example of politics and liberalism at its best.  What a farce Connecticut has become...
