Mr. Malloy's Economic Wasteland

We know there is an election upon us in 2014.  We know here in Connecticut we are near last in all economic categories as compared to other states.  We have one of the highest tax rates in the country along with almost the highest costs in workers compensation insurance, unemployment compensation taxes, high local property taxes, a lack of economic growth, and a dismal business climate.
Voters in Connecticut hopefully will recognize that this is the record of Mr. Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule in the State Legislature.
I am curious as to how the state is going to end up with yet again another massive budget deficit after Mr. Malloy's massive $1.8 billion dollar tax increase when he took office-I thought this was going to resolve the state's fiscal deficit issues?  What happened?  What is the Governor's explanation?  Is it he has only been in office for three years now?  For three years now we see a lack of economic growth, a lack of economic development (except for those companies who contribute to the Democratic party) and a continual net loss of citizens in the state.  That is apparently an excellent record to run a reelection campaign upon.
Mr. Malloy has helped to nurture more of the same helping make Connecticut a vast economic wasteland.
We really need to see a democracy in Hartford again.  We need to see a state government that actually represents the taxpayers that pay for it.  We need to end the brutal regime of Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule.
