How bad can Connecticut's Legislation get? Apparently the worse is yet to come with some current bills being introduced in this current session.
I really thought we saw it all last year with the debacle of a "Police Accountability" law that has made Connecticut unsafe with massive amounts of car thefts and robberies in broad daylight. Crime runs rampant in our state thanks to this bill. Or maybe the "Paid Family Leave Act" that taxes many who work a 1/2 of percent of their income that will somehow pay for many weeks off of paid leave in 2022 for those who will get this paid time off for not working. The oversight to this law and its requirements astound me as to how it can remain solvent over the next few years. Or maybe its the liberal green "Transportation and Climate Initiative" that will be implementing a plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, that includes you guess it higher gasoline taxes. Or as Ned Lamont and his consultants have stated only a "nickel" a gallon will be the increase. Says who? And how will this "help" Connecticut other than eliminate more jobs and cause more businesses to close and or move out of state.
This session we have to deal with the usual Connecticut Democrat Party draconian increases in taxes via laws that would include higher income tax rates, a statewide property tax on "mansions" that are worth $430,000 or more, much higher capital gains taxes and the usual highway tolls. Want to work? Not in Connecticut as Connecticut public employee unions want new powers to pressure state and local government employees to join and pay them. They are demanding workers private information obviously so that they can contact them everywhere and anywhere and pressure them to pay dues. This is SB908. Do you want private health insurance? Many Connecticut Democrats don't want you to have that as seen in a "public option" healthcare plan found in SB22 and a state run "single payer" healthcare system found in SB842. No more local town/city planning and zoning decisions as the state's politically correct forces will eliminate decisions made on a local level and transfer them to the state in the guise of affordable housing, multi-unit residential buildings, sewerage systems, housing authority jurisdiction, training for certain municipal officials involved in planning and zoning decisions and compliance with municipal zoning regulations found in SB804. Have you heard enough yet?
Connecticut's bad legislation is getting worse with the constant omnipotent one party rule of the Connecticut Democrat Party. High taxes, an Executive Order Governor, and one party rule all help Connecticut to continue its road to economic and personal ruin. These bills help to nurture its demise. I have had enough of it.
