It is another day here in Connecticut, land of economic lasts.
And being another day here in economic lasts, Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule has hatched a new plan to spend taxpayers monies.
This new law proposal wants to provide a state retirement pension system for those private sector workers who do not have one where they work.
Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney of New Haven and House Majority Leader Joseph Aresimowicz of Berlin have developed this Utopian/Orwellian plan, both noting they do not know what it will cost the state. Does any elected official know what any programs costs the state? Probably not, but one does not worry about that when you are an elected official in the State of Connecticut. A state of economics lasts in the country.The details naturally are sketchy at this time for this pension plan (sort of like Obamacare), but I thought that was what Social Security was for? I thought Social Security was supposed to take care of us when we retire after paying in taxes to support it for let say give or take 50 years of working-if one starts at age 16 and works until 65. However that is not true now, because you will not receive a large Social Security check when you retire for apparently a variety of economic reasons, the biggest reason being that Social Security is a pyramid scheme and bankrupt (but we will not talk about that).
Here are some free market solutions to this new manufactured Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule crisis.
Cut state taxes so that taxpayers who actually work for a living would have more money to save and invest for their retirements (which are hopefully out of Connecticut). Yes cut state taxes. Cut taxes as much as possible. Reduce state government at the same time. Stop micromanaging every aspect of a taxpayer's life here in the state of economics lasts in the country.
However, it is another day here in Connecticut, land of economic lasts. The windows of economic opportunity continue to close daily here in Connecticut, land of economic lasts.
Stop spending taxpayer's monies in these ridiculous programs.
