Fiscal Cuts in Connecticut
The Governor's Office ^ | 11/28/12 | Dannel Malloy

Connecticut is hurting. We have a Democratic Governor with a stacked state house. We've been cooking the books for 20 years (with RINO gov's too).
Today, a giant list of cuts was released... Now we'll see what happens.

The cuts are here.

Well,allowing Bridgeport to slip into Long Island Sound would be a good start.

Thats only $170M.

CT needs to come up with over $300M in cuts this year and
$1200M next year.

Gov. Malloy promised to do this with no new taxes. Can we all see where this is going to go?

oh they’re real cuts. Some seem pretty deep in some areas too.

(Not nearly enough of course.)

It’ll be interesting because last time our Dem Gov did something like this, the whole state went nuts crying that he couldn’t cut this or that. Even the very same people who demanded cuts in the first place.

To me, it’s a good example of how humans work and how no way will things like ObamaCare ever be repealed.

Do it with no new taxes? They just jacked up the taxes on everything in CT.

Just wait until they get left holding the bag when O-Care takes full effect!
