Fwd: Malloy Budget Mess

Cross Posted Item from another Tillett for CT project

URGENT ALERT!
I’m forwarding this press release from the 
CT GOP Chairman JR Romano 
because it’s Very Important – URGENT
that you know what is coming in #MalloysMess
I’ve highlighted in Bold & Yellow the outrageous cuts that Malloy has in store for our families.
Urgent Action on your part is required: You need to Call the office of the governor and tell him that what he is planning is not acceptable and tell him to #StopHurtingFamilies
Once again this is an attack on our poor working families in CT! While the budget protects the cronies who got him elected; our families, our veterans, our seniors, our children are all under attack in this plan! Our most vulnerable who can’t afford to send lots of money to the democrat election coffers are being attacked by these DANGEROUS Cuts.! 
Malloy is STEALING Our Taxes to pay off his Special Interest Groups and keep the special projects that benefit his crony friends! Malloy is clearly showing that he
  Does NOT CARE ABOUT OUR FAMILIES!! 
Another example of just how devoid of empathy and out of touch these democrats are in CT and across the land.

​Taxpayers of CT​

This is an announcement from the Connecticut Republican Party.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                               

CONTACT: J.R. Romano (info@ct.gop)

DATE:  June 27, 2017                                                                                                  

Dan Malloy’s “Mini-Budget” Is A Slap in The Face For the People of Connecticut

HARTFORD –  After failing to build a consensus for a bipartisan budget deal to address the massive deficit caused by his disastrous tax-and-spend policies, Democrat governor Dan Malloy is putting forth<http://portal.ct.gov/Office-of-the-Governor/Press-Room/Press-Releases/2017/06-2017/Gov-Malloy-Releases-Detailed-July-1-Spending-Plan-Alongside-Proposed-Mini-Budget-Alternative> a “Resource Allocation Plan” to put in place with the expectation that he will not be able to pass a budget.

But while Malloy’s plan protects his big union allies, it leaves the rest of Connecticut out to dry, making massive cuts to education funding, law enforcement, much needed aid for cities and towns across the state, and even ethics funding despite having himself been the subject of an investigation.

Here are just some of the main items for the most recent item of Dan Malloy’s catastrophic agenda for Connecticut:

>   $7.4 million in cuts to Care4Kids TANF/CCDF

>   $14,804,521 in cuts to Temporary Family Assistance

>   $175,523 in cuts to the Election Enforcement Commission

>   $15,698 in cuts to the Office of State Ethics (B-9)

>   Eliminates property tax relief for veterans

>   $3,324,998 in cuts to the Division of Criminal Justice

>   Eliminates funding for Connecticut’s Youth Employment Program and Opportunities for Long Term Unemployed

>   Eliminates funding for the Office of Protection and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities

>   Eliminates Department of Social Services funding for Protective Services for the Elderly

>   Cuts $515,833,717 in Department of Education funding for Education Equalization Grants

>   Cuts $1,212,066 in Department of Education funding for the American School for the Deaf

>   Cuts $42,337,171 in Department of Education funding for priority school districts

>   Cuts $28,701,582 in funding for the University of Connecticut

>   Cuts $14,774,971 in funding for the University of Connecticut Health Center
>   Adds $278,267,000 in retirement contributions for the Teacher’s Retirement Board

>   Increases spending on debt service by $304,937,812

>   Keeps $293,577,508 in reserve for salary adjustments

W Htfd mtg 2016 – Bronin Pushing Regionalism – Ed Peruta Off the Cuff – TBT

ThrowBack Thursday –

Reminder post of when #BrokeBronin started on his #BeggingForBailOuts tour back in Dec 2016 –

So what are you going to do about it, keep on allowing these wasteful corrupt cities in CT to steal more & more from your family or is it time for a #FreshNewStart ?

Had Enough Yet?

 

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Have you been following what is happening over in Hartford’s city hall? 
 
Well if you’re a taxpaying property owner; 
you need to wake up & 
start asking some questions 
of your mayor & town council 
(especially if they are democrats) 
because many have already gone on record volunteering YOU & Your Family
to pay higher taxes 
so that you can pay for 
HARTFORD’s money mismanagement, & decades of corruption… 
 
YES That’s Right …
 
You Don’t get to VOTE in Hartford 
but YOUR TAXES will be going up 
so that YOU can Pay 
“Your Fair Share” 
of Hartford’s Mismanaged “Bills”! 
 
You won’t have a voice in how that money is misspent (that’s what they do there) 
BUT each year 
Your Family will have Less & Less 
while #BrokeBronin & his cohorts 
get to Spend More & More
 
If you Do Not Speak Up Now
Then YOU subject your family forever
to the whims of the corruption going on down in Hartford’s city halls…
More backroom failed stadium deals
More tax increases to pay higher salaries
More tax increases to pay for more scandals
 
The choice is yours 
Speak Up NOW…
 or 
Forever be subjected 
to the continued mismanagement & 
added tax increases circle
 
Can YOUR Family Afford to Pay More Taxes for Hartford’s Money Mismanagement? 
 
7pm West Hartford Town Hall

#TBT – Turbo Tax: The Rap (Extended Version)

This #ThrowBackThursday is in the spirit of fun over the “necessary evil” of paying the federal income taxes.

Do you live in a high state income tax state or a no income tax state?

How long has your state had it’s income tax? Add your comments below so we can talk about taxes in our states.

I recall back in the 90’s when I was busy raising young children when Connecticut became an income tax state.

It was a very nasty election year with Lowell Weicker winning the race for governor simply because he LIED about being willing to veto or sign an income tax bill, he claimed he was against starting an income tax in CT.

Then once he was elected in to office he started with the push to start the income tax rather than getting the state spending at a level that matched or was less than the amount of taxes collected each year.

Do you do your own taxes or do you pay a tax preparer?

If you do your taxes yourself do you use one of the popular tax preparer computer programs such as TurboTax?

Which program do you prefer to use?

But remember #TaxationIsTheft in our current system

With April 18th being the due date this year for our taxes quickly approaching… 
 
I thought I’d share this video from Remy about the craziness that we all feel about how the chore of doing the yearly taxes…
 
Do you do your own taxes or do you pay someone else to do them for you?

Connecticut Attorney General weighs in on potential third casino

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

They keep pushing for a 3rd casino for our state…
 
What don’t people understand about the Law of Supply and Demand?
The more of an item there is the less value it is so the costs and in this case PROFITS Go DOWN…
 
The problem with the east coast region is that there are way too many casinos within a few hours drive so there is no longer the profits that the 2 CT Casinos used to have because people are going elsewhere…
 
The elected officials are gambling with our future with a very losing hand…

CT Connection Hillary for Prison – TBT

April Fools?

Is the joke on us taxpayers in CT again this year in 2018 or have we finally learned our lesson?

Well we’re quickly coming up on Convention – Primary season where we choose who will be on the ballots for this coming election in November…

The major question is;

Will we put up the same old candidates that we’ve always put up and lose again …

or will we finally start listening to the taxpaying voters and…

Will we put up candidates who reflect who we are and have ideas that will help our families rather than hurting them?

 

 

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

With the recent news in CT Politics & the opening of the DNC Convention I thought that I would just share this little video that I made a few months back…

Reminding the voters just who it is that we have running CT & who wants to run our country…
