It is a new year. Happy New Year to my readers. It seems for many years now I have seen a gradual decline in Connecticut. Our state government seems to be working for itself, with a political patronage and spoils system firmly in place. Elected officials lie and break the law with no repercussions. We see that no rule of law applies to them. A constitutional amendment of a legally voted upon state spending cap is ignored then ruled illegal by a Democrat elected official. Back room deals allow for elected officials to resign and then to be appointed to high paying state jobs with little or no experience for a lifetime. Both state management and union workers enjoy well above average salaries, benefits and pensions with little oversight. There are no ramifications when a job is done wrong. Taxpayers pay for this employment debacle. Connecticut owes a great deal of money. It owes between $60 and $80 billion dollars in short and long term debt and unfunded liabilities. There is no and has never been a plan to pay off this debt. It is always kicked down the road for future taxpayers to pay off in theory.
A theme that I have written about for years now is that I do not like government at any level local, state or federal to rip people off especially taxpayers. Sadly I see numerous articles relating to government corruption and the rip off of local, state and federal taxpayers on a daily basis. Here in Connecticut this is the path our elected officials in many cities and towns, in Hartford the hub of state government and our pandering and egotistical two United States Senators and five Representatives have taken. It sickens me. And I know it sickens many taxpayers here in Connecticut. Taxpayers are tired of this corruption and daily rip off. It gives new meaning to a realistic 2018 version of taxation without representation for Connecticut Taxpayers. Again laws and rules do not pertain any more to our Connecticut elected officials. Bridgeport Democrat Mayor Joe Ganim is an excellent example of this disregard for any law.
Thus it is a new year. Can any solutions be found to the issues of Connecticut of 2018? These issues include a loss of population, a loss of jobs, a crumbling infrastructure, high workers compensation costs, excessively high taxes, high state debt and a corrupt state government. What is the plan to deal with these problems?
The silence is deafening. Maybe Connecticut Taxpayers should stop supporting this corruption. It is time to take back Connecticut in 2018.
we as common taxpayers must abide by
