Dems Push for Ever-Higher Taxes in Connecticut, Already One of the Most-Taxed States

The state that ranks 50th in so many economic categories finds itself on the brink of further misery, courtesy of a $750 million tax-hike agreement between Governor Dan Malloy, a hardcore leftist (who ran for reelection in 2014 promising to oppose any tax hikes), in cahoots with equally hardcore Democrats who control the state legislature. Allegedly a tax-the-rich scheme, it also slams middle-class residents. There should be votes in Hartford tonight to swipe the last cans of Who Hash from Nutmeg State voters.

Listen and learn. Act or suffer.
