More Great Connecticut News! Illegals Get Driver Licenses! Thanks Once Again To One Party Rule In Hartford!

I have to hand it to One Party Rule in Hartford.  They abide by no laws, rules nor the State Constitution.
They just do whatever they want, whenever they want and however they want.
No ethics, lies all the time and fraud.
They no longer represent Connecticut in any way,shape or form.
Rammed down the throats of those who pay taxes, work and live in Connecticut legally is the new law passed at 5:48am this morning to give illegal immigrants drivers licenses on 1/1/15.
Democracy really functions well at this time of the morning.
And this is really the most important problem in Connecticut in 2013?
The hell with the deficits, excessive taxation and high unemployment.
The hell with Hartford's One Party Rule.
74 Democrats voted in favor of this insulting bill to allow these licenses.
What about the rights of those legal Connecticut citizens who pay taxes in our state?
We no longer exist according to Hartford's One Party Rule.

Thus we as taxpayers must stop funding this mockery of our elected government.

Political Lies And Scandals And Connecticut's Secret Gross Earnings Tax On Gasoline Is Going Up To 8.1% on July 1.

There are many.  Too numerous for just one column.  And Connecticut's Secret Gross Earnings Tax on gasoline is going up to 8.1% on July 1, increasing the cost of driving even more here in Corrupticut.

In Hartford, one wonders how anything is actually done on either side of the aisle with the current scandal on vote purchasing continuing to unwind.  Several convictions and our elected officials in unison know of nothing that happened during this time.  Amazing.  I really laughed at what Chris Donovan said yesterday-amazing as a former Head of the House of Representatives you knew nothing about what was going on.  Nor did Larry Cafero know anything that was going on either.
Logically one can assume that if one has enough money to donate to either party in Hartford one can influence their vote and your self interest will be fulfilled on a certain piece of legislation.  Sort of like taxpayers monies being used to pay for corrupted lobbyists in Hartford.  It truly is a culture of corruption, greed and fraud which is what our State Government has turned into.

In Washington, our Commander-In-Chief knows nothing going on in either his Administration, nor the Departments that run our Federal Government.  Wow.  Four Americans dead, left behind by their government, the stonewalling of the IRS and the theft of reporters emails and messages.  Wow.
Our President and his Administration know nothing at all.  Yet Mr. Obama enjoys his parties, vacations and fund raisers.  That is obviously more important than being a President and leading his country.  This is how a President leads his country?

The list seems endless of scandals, lies and thefts by our Federal and State Governments.
One last thought:  maybe we as taxpayers need to start to reject our funding of this culture of corruption in Hartford and Washington.  Accountability-no-lies-yes.  Welcome to our corrupt Government in 2013.

Power, Corruption-Washington and Hartford In Unison. Garbage For Government

Does power and politics corrupt? Is there any limit to the power of political corruption?  Is there any limits to the power of our State and Federal government?  Can they be limited?
More importantly why is our tax monies being used to supports this type of corruption?
The political corruption seems to never end in Connecticut.
Nor either in Washington.  The current scandals and cover ups in Washington are enormous.
You mean to tell me that our tax monies are being used to investigate those who have a different political view than the current administration and that information is being given to a news organization?
Our phone conversations I guess are no longer private either.
You do not see the misuse of the City of Hartford's credit cards which are paid for by Hartford taxpayers monies? 
You do not see the political payoffs and corruption of our State Legislature?  The Donovan debacle is no longer front page news in Connecticut-hushed up as usual. 
Why should the Republicans offer a budget?  It is automatically ridiculed by the Democrats-they own the state and the economic debacle we are in.

Garbage for government.  And our tax monies are being used to support the power and corruption.
It is time for a change and time to stop funding the power and corruption that is our government.

If Connecticut's Economy Is Broken Can We Do Something Different-No Just Keep Spending And Raising Taxes

Is Connecticut's economy broken?  In my economic opinion yes.  Is Hartford's One Party Rule doing anything about it?  No.  Thus let us just keep increasing state spending and raise taxes.  Done and over.
Until the next survey or poll comes out.  And the finger pointing and blame starts.

This new survey by "Chief Executive Magazine" ranks Connecticut as 45th out of 50 states in doing business. From their website  Here are a few quotes from CEO's who responded to the survey:

“Connecticut is a tax and spend, Democrat-controlled state with no debate. The state agencies do not coordinate their actions and there are several that could be combined as they each have a part in incentives or solutions. Governor Malloy is more visible than prior governors, but likes to pick winners and losers rather than establish an environment for all businesses as other states do.”
“Connecticut is the worst. Poor leadership.”

To me it is more of the same, more wasted state resources, more wasted productivity and labor.  Just really more of the same tax and spend policies which continue to fail our economy.   $12 billion dollars in increased state spending over the last twenty years with nothing to show for it other than excessive debt, excessive long term unfunded liabilities and an elitist centralized government in Hartford.
Why can't state spending be cut?  Why can't Commissioners be downsized and positions eliminated?  Why so many duplicate programs? Why can't taxes actually be cut to stimulate the state economy?
Connecticut's economy is broken and continues to be broken by the excessive demands of Hartford's One Party Rule.  
State spending needs to be cut now.  State government needs to be downsized and streamlined.  Political elitism and patronage needs to end on both sides of the political aisle.  Connecticut's economy needs to be the priority of our elected officials not a Utopian playground to use for personal and political gain at taxpayer's expense.

The Chronic Tax And Spend Issues Of Connecticut

Before I get into the chronic tax and spend issues of Connecticut, I really would like to know what our government is doing to free Kenneth Bae, a US Citizen who was captured and is being held prisoner by North Korea.  It is time to end all diplomatic channels with North Korea and take military force against this irrational and rogue country.  All prisoners in North Korea need to be freed once and for all.
Now back to the chronic economic issues of our state.
Another $500 million in projected tax revenue will not be coming in any time soon for the state.  I do not know why this is even being treated as news since we are in a massive economic recession in Connecticut due to horrific taxes and excessive state spending.  Connecticut has no economic plan other than tax and spend.
And an entire legislative session has been wasted on mythical gun control along giving illegal aliens anything they want.
Maintaining the current level of spending will only lead to another massive tax increase.  All this while our Governor travels and leads the good life at ultimately taxpayers expense.  I truly hope he has had a great time seeing the country and world rather than governing.
Connecticut has an economic paralysis.  Cronyism has replaced coherent economic thought and policies.  I do not understand why the media has not reported the true economic news in our state.
More businesses will be moving out of state (i.e. state gun manufacturers), more spending by state government and yet even more and higher state taxes are arriving.
It is truly the chronic tax and spend issues of Hartford's One Party Rule.
