It was Margaret Thatcher who said “The trouble with socialism is that eventually you always run out of other people’s money” wasn’t it?
Rather sad that this cycle there hasn’t been the same excitement & activity against the new taxes like there was to defeat the Windsor budget the other year… if there was then there would be no question about the races this year & it would be a resounding NO to all of the Taxing Tyrants most of whom are career politicians
Unless the tax paying voters of CT do not wake up this year & vote Row B we’re going to be in for some serious tax increases coming & going which will not only hurt our families wallets but also put our safety at risk as there is a plan in place to quietly sell of the Brainard Airport so that the MDC can become Land Developers & use the land instead for Apartments & their select friends can profit while our water rates will likely raise again for the cleanup of the contaminated land
Eric is going to be voting not only to give us the mileage tax which will be increased to pay for the crazy plans that they are proposing for the “transportation plan”
Eric will also be voting to give us the forced regionalism with appointees that are not elected nor accountable to We the People. We’ll be forced to pay without any input into what types of taxes & what they will be applied to.
So that means we’ll be paying for the Hartford stadiums & any new crazy plans that Mrs Bronin & her friends come up with in addition to other corporate welfare & special interest projects & corruption that Hartford has squandered away their taxes.
While we homeowners in Windsor, Bloomfield; & other towns like West Hartford, Wethersfield & Newington, we won’t have a vote or voice against it because those people will all be Malloy appointees. Appointees who won’t have to answer to us & who will be getting paid extra for serving plus benefits & of course that expense will be added into the taxes too.
Taxation without Representation is back on these shores yet that is why we became a country in the first place but this year there is no outcry against it?
Why are we NOT Fighting against these 2 giant taxes on multiple fronts?
Is no one paying attention to the fact that we here in Windsor & Bloomfield will be paying for the mess created in the corrupt city hall in Hartford?
Is no one aware that Mayor Trinks as well as other democrat mayors are on record saying they are more than happy to raise our taxes to “help” bail Hartford out?
