With Traveling Dan Malloy's initial budget proposal of shifting a massive burden of state spending to fiscally responsible towns and cities through the guise of higher property taxes for state teachers pensions along with higher state taxes coupled with the Democrat House and Senate proposals of tolls, shopping bag taxes and higher sales and income taxes the Connecticut Democrat Party seems to be at war with Connecticut Taxpayers. In my economic opinion the tax and spend proposals developed by the Connecticut Democrat Party are economically illiterate and economically inept. They show why the Connecticut Democrat Party can not govern effectively any more.
Connecticut's state government has a massive spending problem. It spends money rampantly to support a ruling political elite that consists of state workers both union and management through excessive salaries, benefits and pensions. A true spoils system for the politically connected that has helped to ruin our state economically. Then we hear that the Connecticut Democrat Party blames the Connecticut Republican Party for our economic demise.
Connecticut continues to rank last in many economic categories and will continue in the future based upon what we are seeing from this current budget session. There are no cuts in spending. No mention of real pension reform. No cuts in salaries or benefits. No changes to the ruling political elites economic power over Connecticut Taxpayers.
Connecticut has become a horrific example of economic Socialism at its worse. A total disregard for any type of economic logic nor economic plan to bring the state out of its economic depression.
More of the same is the theme for the Connecticut Democrat Party in 2017. More spending and more taxes. No reforms. No law too large or too small to break for the Connecticut Democrat Party in 2017.
Why didn't Dan Malloy's and the Connecticut Democrat Party two highest tax increases in state history solve our economic problems? The Connecticut Democrat Party seems to be at war with the remaining Connecticut Taxpayers left in the state. No make that the Connecticut Democrat Party has declared a complete economic war with the remaining Connecticut Taxpayers left in the state. Their hatred of Connecticut Taxpayers knows no limits.
