This Is A Budget?

Wow, what a state budget!  I wonder if anyone can understand Connecticut's budget?  How much more was pushed off budget?  Does anyone know how much in long term debt and unfunded liabilities the state actually has?  How does obtaining a theoretical $75 million dollars in back taxes help balance a $19 billion dollars that is filled with pork and excesses?  How large a budget deficit is the new Governor looking at when he or she takes office next January (I am truly optimistic that Malloy is one term and done)?  Is it over $1 billion dollars already?  Possibly $2 billion dollars?  And at what level of new and increased taxation will be needed to maintain this bloated spending?
Many questions however no answers by Mr. Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule.  Promise everything to the politically connected and force the politically unconnected taxpayers to pay for it.  And still have no long term solutions to the serious economic issues Connecticut has.  It is the same story over and over again, year in and year out.  No changes.  With this budget Connecticut should be ranked 50th out of 50 states in all categories economically soon.
Many plead for a change in Hartford, more balance to government, less laws, less spending, less taxes.  It goes unnoticed and unheard.  Mr. Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule only concern is their power, power that is stolen and exhibited in so many different ways.
November is fast approaching-is this really the government that taxpayers want?
