Here we go.....more of the msnbc (and others), "your children are not your responsibility, they're ours" BS.
to my left leaning friends...this pendulum can swing back.....think of how your kids will be educated when President Cruz is in for 8 years.
your kids should be YOUR responsibility....not government's. View Comment

there's nothing 'right wing' about the post. The State calculates the rate based on employment data.....and newsflash, the State is not what i'd call "right wing"
you're just too dense to understand.
why stop at $10?
let's just do $20? or $30....heck, why sell people short, governor?
Let's peg it at $50/hr.....if raising the minimum wage is good for the economy, why on earth would we stop at $10....?
you are 100% incorrect. the facts is that 'unemployment' did not 'drop', it increased by 4000.
the 'rate' decreased only because MORE people dropped out of the workforce (denominator) during this period....again bad news.....make the rate appear attractive. but the pie is smaller. fewer people are working this month than last month. two negatives do not make a positive in this case.
fine. do as your president demanded....demanded.....PAYGO.
find the money in the budget....
life has tradeoffs.
how about that $3MM that will be spent on a bridge in rowayton that no one in rowayton wants.....there's a start.....and everybody wins. View Comment
the only 'destruction' we're discussing (and you are cheering) is the state losing 4,000 jobs....
if 4K lost is worthy of your joy....what if we lose 8,000 next month, you'd be even happier, right? how about 16,000 jobs lost? or 32K....?
at what point do we reach utopia? when no one is employed? View Comment
Good Lord, Elizabeth....
THIS, my friends, is why our nation is in trouble. The democrats are passionate about being clueless.
Please read up on the Participation Rate and its impact on the overall unemployment rate. Once you have a basic understanding of the calculations, your tune will change. View Comment
despite this bad news, the Reporter still concludes with - to DaveK's point - the rate's positive trend numbers over time.
Greg, you might want to do readers a solid and research how many job LOSSES are baked into this rate reduction. the article ends with a conclusion that's 180 degrees from the truth. When it comes to jobs and taxpayers, shrinking our way to prosperity should not be the strategy....and if it is, the Left shouldnt whine about income equality. View Comment
DaveK, "good job" ? really?
did you read that Connecticut "LOST JOBS"....the only reason the RATE goes down is because people are dropping out of the workforce....they're no longer counted in the equation so the pie of working, tax paying people is SMALLER. this is TERRIBLE news. View Comment
the "no risk, guaranteed return" MyRA is a joke....this admin needs the next sucker to take over where the Chinese and Fed left off since they're not going to buy enough of our bonds to finance all this OVER spending....

ever take a look at how metro north spends its money? hint: take a look at their employee and pension obligations.
try this on for size: "“Uncontrollable” costs, which continue to outpace inflation, are increasingly the focus of
MTA’s cost saving efforts. These costs, which include employee and retiree health care,
paratransit, pensions, debt service, energy, and insurance, are driven by factors that are
largely outside the control of the MTA."
...and your policies are to blame for each of these.
as for breaks for oil? fine. get rid of them, but dont cry when the cost of a gallon of gas goes much higher....and fares for certain mass transit shows a commensurate increase. both of which will hurt the very people you claim to want to help.
you cant be serious.
we are what, 6 years since bush and 8 years since republicans controlled Congress? even debbie wasserman schultz, your DNC Chairwoman, said 2 years ago that obama "owned this economy".
but keep posting, you're bringing much needed entertainment to a sad topic. View Comment
