Dan Malloy wants the Connecticut Republicans budget immediately. ASAP. Pronto. Malloy in my opinion needs the Connecticut Republicans budget immediately to confide to our biased media how bad it is. In all probability it will contain real pension reforms, cut spending and will allow for some business tax cuts. It will be dead on arrival as Malloy has not and never will negotiate a budget with the Connecticut Republicans for the rest of his term. After much grandstanding and rhetoric Connecticut Taxpayers will be forced to pay more taxes on a state level. They will be paying more property taxes on a local level. They will continue to pay for a ruling political elite and a state budget that consists basically of salaries, benefits and pensions.
Financial and fiscal reform is dead on arrival.
Salary reform reform is dead on arrival.
Benefit reform is dead on arrival.
Pension reform is dead on arrival.
Yet Dan Malloy will scream for that Connecticut Republican budget proposal. He will dismiss it as economic garbage immediately. He will state that he did the best he could given all the bad things he inherited from previous administrations. He will state that regionalism is the only way out to prop up the Democrat city voting machines of Bridgeport, Hartford and New Haven through the economic penalization of economically efficient towns. He will state that higher taxes are the only way out to somehow restore economic vitality to the state even though in 2016 no new jobs were created in the state and that taxes have been raised non stop since he has taken office.
For 2017 Dan Malloy and his Connecticut Democrat Party priorities are basic. New and higher taxes to continue to support Connecticut state employees both management and non management. Give legal status and resident benefits to those who are here illegally. To tax plastic shopping bags and make your body state property when you die.
Connecticut's budget is still a mess. Compliments of Dan Malloy and the Connecticut Democrat Party. Hurry up Connecticut Republican budget. Malloy ran out of time. More importantly Connecticut Taxpayers have run out of time, money and patience.
