Umm, unless you live under a rock, or are just stupid, you know that regardless of who the governor was, our state has been a Democratic stronghold for decades. When we got a Republican Governor it was with Democrat blessing because they were as liberal as the Democrats. We are a poster child for how the Democratic party does business. View Comment
Whats anybody going to do with $50 or $100 in this the most expensive state in the country, created by these Democrats?
“We are creating a solid foundation that supports necessary services while allowing for potential further reductions in taxes in the coming years.”
He doesn't know what a reduction in taxes is, his party has done NOTHING to reign in spending and has overseen & promoted the greatest tax increases in history.
Besides, there can be NO surplus if we still have debt, to the tune of several billion dollars. This is just another sign of the utter contempt for responsibility which has become an integral part of the Democratic party both nationally & locally.
Blah blah blah. Big oil has NOTHING to do with CT or our troubles. We are talking STATE politics here, Democrats are a cancer on CT in every way shape & form. Unless you are a bottom feeding social leach or a wealthy person CT has little to offer. The Middle class is being pushed either out of the state or into poverty by them. View Comment
Surplus? We have no surplus, we are operating in the red. Where do you come up with this crap? No wonder you can vote for a man who left Stamford to poor to provide fireworks on the fourth of July. No wonder you support a party who has taken the great state of CT from a great place to live & work to the highest taxed state in the nation. View Comment
Boo hoo, if the commuters paid a fair rate there wouldn't be any subsidies, it could run like a business and everything would be good. Its off topic but personally I think interstate commuters hurt CT. Go live in NYC if you want to work there. View Comment
Which Republicans are those? Not in CT, CT has been virtually run by the Democrats for decades. Besides, there shouldn't be mass transit funds. If its not self supporting it will never last. View Comment
LMAO, Wow, just wow, you must smoke some good stuff. redirecting what funds? The State of CT gives metro north ALOT of our money. If anything the issue is the Democrats doing whatever any union asks them to do. Thats why the people sweeping the streets in town make more than skilled tradesmen in the real world.
Shouldn't be any politics involved. It should simple make money or go broke. If taxpayers need to fund it so some people can commute & make more money than they can here thats just wrong. If you want to commute & its $100 each way so be it, it sure shouldn't be the states issue.
These the same lawmakers who failed to inform their constituents that new laws were making a few million of them felons if they failed to register things by the first? The hypocrisy of politicians is disgusting. If people don't like MTA they shouldn't use it. Has nothing to do with our legislature & we shouldn't be subsidizing it anyway. They ignore the results of their actions but sure freak out if anybody else screws up.
You guys are obviously clueless, this is far from typical of the over 200,000 permit holders in CT. The news itself has no clue, he might have had 3 handguns but he only had one permit.
Where I agree is it gives all gun owners a bad name, ignorant people will take this & run with it.
Danny Malloy should note that King was a Republican, a gun owner & was denied a permit to carry by a system very much like the one Malloy runs today. Like so many others we can only wonder if this great man would be alive today had his civil rights not been denied him by his state. Were he alive today I doubt he would have turned into a Democrat & stand beside Jackson or Sharpton, two men who unlike MLK Jr, have chosen to get wealthy off of racism. Rather he would be admonishing them & if in CT fighting side by side with those opposing the laws passed by the Democrats here.
More info our legislature NEEDED BEFORE they even began drafting legislation. If they cared about it being more meaningful that just brownie points among the other liberal cesspools we compete with.
"That makes it more important than ever that the state put policies in place that make sense, and protect workers while helping businesses to thrive.
Sounds good, but its just a soundbite. Duff & the Democrats are directly responsible for our loss of industry and jobs. I guess if you are in the restaurant business you are ok, or other service jobs. But calling the restaurant or any service industry vital is silly. They don't drive an economy, they serve those in an area. If nobody can afford to go out & eat, or have their lawn cut, or house cleaned, those things dry up quickly. We need to get manufacturing back, we need to get construction moving again, things like that drive an economy, not the places where those people eat. View Comment
