Connecticut Republican Legislators Gearing up for November 2012

Like the federal budget the state of Connecticut’s debt keeps rising.  At the time of this
writing the states debt is  $40,629,690,000+ and rising despite tax hikes and new taxes
levied on services such as pet grooming, hair cuts.

The states debt clock can be found here:

The Connecticut Republicans are now asking
“Can you afford more of the tax and spend policies pushed by Gov. Dannel Malloy and majority Democrats in Connecticut’s legislature?”

In the latest video post by the CHRCC  (Connecticut House Republican Campaign Committee)
points fingers at just who the leaders of the Democratic Controlled Legislators are and who followed them down the
path of increasing taxes.

As the state of Connecticut faces another year of deficits, unemployment and a bus-way to nowhere you really
have to ask yourself , “Are our state leaders really listening to its citizens?”

    Democrats just keep doing the same thing, over and over again, expecting different results, and we know what that indicates!

      I do not completely accept that they actually expect different results though they keep selling the same old excrement on the premise that it will deliver differently and what’s bothersome is that they experience a significant degree of success doing so.

    Dan’l P. Malloy and the Connecticut Democrat‘s will never listen to the people of Connecticut as long money keeps flowing into the state coffers.
    Those tax-happy and spend-aholic politicians have no concept of a finite end to the cornucopia of cash. Politicians have no clue that the taxpayer has been taxed too much. Their mantra is, “Taxes aren’t high enough . . . Shared sacrifice . . . We need more money.” The politically connected are feasting on the very best while we are being fed baloney.? For every potential dollar expected to be fleeced from its “tax base”, Connecticut politicians — primarily Democrats — can figure a multitude of ways to spend it. Forget that they already spent that same dollar last week.
    Are Connecticut politicians listening to the taxpayers? No. They only hear the unions, their friends, the schemes of the connected, the elites and their special interests.

      This hits the nail on the head.? As it stands now- special interests- particularly public sector unions- are looting the working class in Connecticut and this governor with the help of a lap dog legislature are enabling it.? After the record tax increase that was justified by the huge deficit they INCREASED the budget from 37.6 billion in 2010 and 2011 to 40.1 billion for 2012 and 2013 yet the deficit is characterized in terms of less than expected revenue… so guess who’s in for more tax increases!? Bend over Nutmeggers though after the reaming administered by King DanNUL we’ll be used to it.? Time to replace as many of his yes-men in Hartford as possible and give DanNUL boy a hint of what awaits in 2014.

    All I can say is there was only one state representative that voted against the State Budget. His name is Chris Coutu and he is running for the Senate seat that Senator Prague held. ?this is not an ad, this is a statement from me to the state ?General Assembly, “You Can Vote the Budget Down, darn it!

    While our governor and legislature entreat out-of-state businesses to move their operations to Connecticut with forgivable “loans,” the state is steadily losing another asset. Every week, day after day, more and more people opt to vote for their pocketbooks with their feet. They are the affluent. They are the ones who were EARNING a good living. Not people on the dole. They are the ones who have been carrying the tax load imposed by the profligate spending of the governor and the self-protecting legislature; and, they are leaving Connecticut.
    Done. Finished. They have had enough. They are tired of being a tax target. I know. A very good friend and his wife retired and immediately moved to Utah. They actually made money by relocating and, they will continue to keep more of their retirement dollars.
    Why? TAXES!
