Is Connecticut operating in a rational and or logical manner following its state constitution?
Is Connecticut following the set of rules and laws that encompasses its legal system?
Is Connecticut protecting its legal law abiding and taxpaying citizens?
Is Connecticut's Legislature and Governor finding any economic solutions to its short and long term debt of billions upon billions of dollars?
Is Connecticut a dysfunctional mess?
One can argue in a persistent manner that Connecticut is exceptionally dysfunctional.
It is difficult to explain anymore the total lack of economic reasoning of our state government. From an economics point of view our government's only concern is to protect a political minority elite of bloated salaries, benefits and pensions in both management and union jobs. The economic costs of sustaining an excessive state workforce continues to drain Connecticut taxpaying citizens. Each budget for the past seven years of the Malloy regime has produced more and higher taxes, more and higher spending. Each year we hear the same doomsday draconian cuts to social welfare spending that hurt those most in need in Connecticut while never a word is said about the ruling political minority elite and cutting their excesses. It is the same Connecticut Democrat lies year in and year out.
The economic costs of sustaining illegal immigrants continues to drain legal Connecticut taxpaying citizens. It seems that this Administrations only goal it to give legal rights to those who live in Connecticut illegally. The hell with Connecticut's legal taxpayers and citizens.
Thus nothing has changed in 2017. Connecticut is a dysfunctional mess. Connecticut's Democrat ruling political elite have gained even more control over its citizens and taxpayers in this new economically dysfunctional budget.
As a lifelong Connecticut citizen and taxpayer I am really close to throwing in the towel on this state and its excesses. Reform? Lower spending? Lower taxes? Protection of rights of legal citizens? No, no, no and more no is what we hear from Connecticut's Democrat ruling political elite.
The dysfunctional economy continues. I blame Connecticut's Democrat ruling political elite. They own what used to be a great, free, independent and constitutional state. They are the political cesspool who rule Connecticut with an iron fist. And they still can not see how they continue to damage Connecticut. Cut taxes, cut spending, cut salary, benefit and pension bloat. Those suggestions are only laughed at by Connecticut's Democrat ruling political elite.
