Connecticut has a dysfunctional government. It is illogical and irrational. Its only concern is to maintain a high level of salaries, benefits and pensions for both its union and management workers. It is poor in providing functional and efficient services for Connecticut Taxpayers that Connecticut Taxpayers must pay for. One can look to the inefficient and dysfunctional Department of Motor Vehicles as an example of the true ineptness of our state agencies. Our state government nurtures a climate of political patronage and corruption funded on the broken backs of the overtaxed Connecticut Taxpayer. And our elected officials in particular especially the elitist and omnipotent Connecticut Democrat Party are in total denial that there is anything wrong with this reality.
Our state is in and has been and will be for the near future in an economic catastrophe that the Connecticut Democrat Party has nurtured and promoted for years now.
And in 2017 we see no difference as the Connecticut Democrat Party wants still more spending and more taxes to resolve our now annual economic crisis. The Connecticut Democrat Party really does not care about anything other than preserving the political status quo of patronage and corruption paid for by you and I the Connecticut Taxpayer.
Thus do we have any solutions to our economic mess? None that I can really see any more as we are told constantly that we have a problem with taxpayers and businesses continuing to move out of state due to a poor business climate, a poor infrastructure, excessively high workers compensation costs and excessively high taxes yet we will continue to raise and create new taxes so that this trend just continues over and over again. No answers are provided either by the elitists in Hartford to resolve our alarming debt crisis which is ballooning daily. Our short and long debt along with unfunded liabilities is fast approaching $100 billion dollars with no end in sight. And no plan to pay it off.
The 2017 legislative session is turning out to be just like every one since Dan Malloy took office. More and higher taxes, more and higher state spending, more economic garbage thrown at Connecticut Taxpayers. The carnage needs to stop at some point.
