Your taxes keep rising—so why is Connecticut broke?
Connecticut residents pay the highest taxes in the entire country, second only to New York.

Next year, lawmakers must close a multi-billion-dollar budget gap—and in the coming months, that deficit is only expected to grow.

This problem shouldn’t exist. After all, in 2011, Governor Malloy signed a $1.8 billion tax increase package, and another $800 million tax hike in 2015. Just last year, the General Assembly again passed $180 million in new taxes.

But even as they increase taxes, lawmakers also cut funding for essential services like education, mental health, and aid for the disabled. And at the same time, some lawmakers call for yet another round of tax increases. It’s a vicious cycle, with the people of Connecticut paying the price at both ends.

Why are taxes going up even as services decrease?

Gov. Dannel Malloy and his budget chief, Ben Barnes, admitted that every penny of Connecticut’s significant 2011 and 2015 tax increases went to pay for pensions and other retirement benefits.

The status quo isn’t working for Connecticut residents.

This flyer includes the closest approximation we can compile to all the taxes and fees Connecticut collects, some fees taking in as little as $10. The state needs to analyze its revenue streams and eliminate those doing more harm than good.
Here’s what we mean. The bottom 200 sources of revenue amount to only 0.22% of Connecticut’s total revenue.

Did you know that some of these taxes and fees can hurt small businesses? Here are a few of the 2019 taxes and fees totals from the bottom 200 revenue sources.

In the General Fund, there’s a fee for state lease of oyster grounds – $75,860
In the General Fund, there’s a tax on the registration fee for Charitable Games – $44,375
In the Transportation Fund, there’s an annual fee for applying to have an informational sign – $ 18,000
In the Revenue General Fund, there’s a tax on the sale of advertising space – $3,266
In the Revenue Transportation Fund, there a tax on the sale of photocopies of government printing matters – $622.36

Looney sounds loony!

Senate President Pro-Tem Martin Looney, D-New Haven, filed two bills to implement a statewide property tax on residential and commercial property and to implement a surcharge on capital gains.
Just another layer of taxes making smart money leave the state.

On day 1, President Joe Biden has unilaterally eviscerated women’s competitive sports. According to the executive order, any educational institution that receives federal funding must allow biologically-male athletes to compete individually, on teams, and reward scholarships.

Stamford's J.D. Ospina in the Stamford Advocate

I wish him success': In Stamford, former Trump voters willing to give President Biden a chance.

“It’s time for us Republicans to really look ourselves in the mirror, because we’re at a crossroads with who we are as a party, especially at the local level,” he said.

He hopes to build a broader conservative coalition, one that takes a right-leaning stance on issues like zoning and public education. At the end of the Trump-in-Washington era, his eyes are fixed firmly on Connecticut.

The thief, who got into my house by systematic lies, is now stealing my goods. I wish him and his posse all success, and promise to work harder, so I have more to give them when they come back in two years, looking for more. God, I love Connecticut voters!🤣🤣🤣
