The Malloy Deficit-Or When A Deficit Is Not A Deficit

Confusion.  When is a deficit not a deficit?  When Dan Malloy is running for reelection along with Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule.  The Governor who apparently cruised to reelection making up campaign laws as he went along won by a whopping 25,000 votes in an election where over 40% of the registered voters stayed home and did not vote.  Thus we will have more of the same for the next four years.  A total disregard for our state constitution along with a massive budget deficit which will bring about new and higher taxes for Connecticut.

But back to my original economic thoughts, When is a deficit not a deficit? In Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party minds it is perfectly acceptable to state during the campaign that there was no budget deficit.

For example on June 4, 2014 Malloy stated, "We don’t face a deficit. I’ve decided to boil this down a little bit for you. The deficit projections on the same services budget would require that we increase spending by 7.78 percent. You don’t believe we’d do that, nobody believes we’d do that,” he said. Nobody, no party, no politician is going to advocate that we increase spending by 7.78 percent. It’s a ridiculous number.”  http://www.ctnewsjunkie.com/archives/entry/malloy_dismisses_deficit_projections_wont_ask_for_more_concessions/

Confusion.  When is a deficit not a deficit? On September 3, 2014
On the campaign trail, Malloy claims that there is “no deficit” in the future; these projections come from the same independent Office of Fiscal Analyses, the entity he quotes in his regular campaign stump speech. http://blog.ctnews.com/kantrowitz/2014/09/03/foley-and-malloy-are-just-plain-wrong-on-taxes/

Confusion.  When is a deficit not a deficit?  When it is $100 million this fiscal year and explodes to $1 billion dollars next fiscal year.  And all of the lies, all of the higher taxes that Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party will create over the next year will not be enough to make Connecticut debt free again.  $80 billion dollars in long term debt in 2014, by 2018 that should double at least $160 billion based on current and future spending and borrowing.

Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party-back in power, back to the lies, back to last in all economic categories in our country.  Maybe the 40% who did not vote should have.  Or maybe we should just move out of Connecticut.

Happy Veterans Day

I want to wish all Veterans a Happy and Peaceful Veterans Day on Tuesday. We can reflect on the great sacrifices our military men and women make each day without ego nor fan fare to help keep our country safe from world wide threats. We can also reflect on all of the men and women who gave their lives to our country to keep us free. Freedom has never been nor ever will be free nor should it ever be taken for granted. We as a country will prevail over the forces and war of terrorism. And we will prevail over those who wish to upset our freedom.

Sunday's Thoughts About Election Day-Vote Republican

In Connecticut there seems to be two worlds, one of economic reality and one of economic fantasy during this election.  The economic reality is being shown by Republican candidates especially for those brave individuals who are running for State Representative and State Senator.  For example Frank Apuzzo who is the Republican candidate for Wallingford State Representative has presented a clear and concise economic platform for voters.  His opponent the economically stale and in office for 34 years now Mary Mushinsky represents Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule economic fantasy of the state economy. Taxpayers serve Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule and have been for many years now.  A voter could argue with great validity that they are not better off from her first term in 1980 to today.  In fact many of those same voters and taxpayers she supposedly represents have moved out of Connecticut over the past 34 years.  The erosion of the state's economy has been happening for many years now and is not letting up.  Frank Apuzzo has the new economic ideas which are essential to prevent Connecticut from being ranked at the bottom number 50 out of 50 states in all economic categories.
On the State Senate side I wish I could vote for Republican candidate Len Suzio of Meriden running in the 13th Senatorial District.  Mr. Suzio has led by example in his previous term as State Senator and has been unyielding in his desire to repeal the irrational and deadly early prisoner release program.  I am curious if one of Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule family members were killed by an ex prisoner who came out of this early release program how fast the program would be eliminated?  Mr. Suzio has the economic and business experience to help develop legislation to get Connecticut's economy moving again.  He is also a great choice for voters in this district. 
Connecticut's two economic worlds could become one of economic hope on Tuesday November 4th by voting for the State Republican teams in this election-from Tim Herbst to Tom Foley-to Frank Apuzzo to Len Suzio.  Economic hope versus more economic stagnation and despair nurtured by Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule.  Which do you want on election day?
