Governor Rell: Gov. Rell: Executive Order Continues Funding for State Operations While Budget Talks Continue

Hold your ground Governor, don't give up until you get the Democrats to give into huge cuts in spending and not a dime in tax increases.

The last time this happened, we had no budget until October, so just hand in there until you can get the liberals to stop giving our hard earned money away as if it grows on trees.

Maybe she should have just let everything shut down and lay everyone around until the Democrats do the responsible ting and cut spending?

In a statement supporting the Democratic budget plan, Representative O’Brien said the following:

"This budget makes the choice to be fair by asking the wealthiest people in the state - those with incomes over $500,000 a year - to contribute just a little more to be able to meet the important needs of our state."

This statement appears to once again create that all too familiar class warfare by giving the impression that they are only going to tax those damn rich people making over $500,000, but before deciding on this budget, please consider the following:

The Democratic budget contains a new tax on all business income that taxes all business profits at 25% and this does not only apply to income over $500,000, it applies to all business profits.

The Democratic budget increases the cigarette tax by 75 cents per pack, bringing the state tax on cigarettes to $2.75 per pack or $27.50 per carton.

The Democratic budget increases the fees for admission to state parks by an undisclosed amount.

The Democratic budget increases the license fees the state charges for all professional licenses and “other items” that have yet to be revealed to the public.

Governor Rell is correct in her statements that this budget would devastate Connecticut businesses and did the correct thing to veto it.
