Breaking……Aetna may leave Hartford for Manhattan

Just less than two years ago (June 2015) GE, Aetna, and Travelers issued warnings to Governor Dan Malloy and the CT Democrats –

Don’t continue to raise taxes, get your fiscal house in order.
“GE was the first to issue a statement, saying early Monday that the proposed tax increases are ‘truly discouraging' and that the company would ‘seriously consider whether it makes any sense to continue’ to remain in Connecticut.
‘It is essential that Governor Malloy and legislative leaders find a more prudent and responsible path forward for Connecticut and its residents in their current budget negotiations,' the company said.

We all know what happened-General Electric followed through and left Connecticut

Wall Street Journal January 13, 2016,
“GE publicly threatened its move in June, blaming a Connecticut budget deal that raised corporate taxes and what company officials described as an inhospitable business climate.”

Today it was reported that Aetna is close to a decision on headquarters moving to New York.

Daily Ructions, May 30, 2017
“Aetna executives and representative have begun to inform public officials that the headquarters search process is close to a conclusion. The announcement should provoke a searching examination of the policies that have caused Aetna–on the heels of GE–to leave Connecticut.”

The Insurance icon of Hartford and Connecticut issued warnings to the Connecticut Democrats. Malloy and the Democrats passed two of the largest tax increases in Connecticut’s history and the consequence is that we are losing our businesses to our neighbors in New England.

This madness must stop now.
Connecticut Republican leaders have proposed a no tax increase budget. Connecticut Republican leaders have proposed cuts to spending.

It is time for Connecticut to end the one party rule- Republican ideals can lead the way.
