Today, Governor Malloy outlined gruesome tax
& fee hikes on Connecticut working families while also hitting
towns with massive funding cuts.
According to the CT Mirror: The
governor recommends a net state tax increase of $205 million next
fiscal year... And then there’s Malloy’s plan to bill cities and towns
for one-third of the state’s cost of providing municipal teachers’
pensions. Technically, that’s a fee that would require communities to
pay $407.8 million in the first year and $420.9 million in the second.
Here were just a few highlights from Malloy's budget proposal:
Increased Hospital Taxes
Gun Permit Fee Hikes
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Hikes
It's time to STOP the madness in Hartford, by stopping Dan Malloy!
Last year our State Party spent over $100,000 in direct candidate
support and provided unprecedented technological advancements to help
campaigns target their voters. Through your smart investments, we
climbed all the way to an 18-18 TIE in the State Senate.
With three special elections happening later this month, we need to fight back against the Malloy budget mess harder than ever!
If we win two of the three special elections we can tip the balance of power in Hartford away from Dan Malloy!
We are just one vote shy of stopping the disastrous Malloy
redistribution of wealth once and for all. But we can't do it without
your immediate help.
