read the report....
"Connecticut’s labor force is now higher by 12,428
(0.7%) participants over the year, but did decline in July (-6,311, -0.3%) . "
so, last month alone, we gave up HALF of the gains for the entire year prior.
before we celebrate, let's take that little, unpublished nugget into consideration.....it appears twice as many positions were eliminated out of the workforce as were added....6311 vs 3100. View Comment
wait, didnt we just do that in 2009?
we gave the obama admin a trillion dollars. an amount that would fill a football stadium to the top with cash.
how many times will people fall for the scam? View Comment
so, in other words, the $787,000,000,000.00 that obama promised was for "shovel ready jobs" and would "generate 4% GDP growth" was a complete failure. (worst roads and negative 3% GDP)
sorry kids....that's ANOTHER trillion you owe. View Comment
and there you have it. right out in the open. i applaud you Dirty Duck. the rest of the democrats simply try to mask their (rather obvious) intentions.
the entire Bill of Rights is under assault. take a look at the rest of the destruction today's democrat party is executing.... View Comment
Read the MTA financial statements (avail on their website) and you will see their challenge. The snowballing cost of pension and healthcare costs, their bloated debt service is another driver of their inability to pay for needed maintenance.
If you want better service, don't count on it being cheap. They have kicked the can for decades and it's finally catching up to them...the math simply isn't working anymore. View Comment
More high cost, unionized government, higher taxes on the way....
This, just a day after the state of Wisconsin's governor turned a $3.6 deficit into a $1 billion surplus and is returning the money to taxpayers.
Quite a contrast.
We are getting an invoice for higher taxes from our Democrat governor. Wisconsin is getting a billion dollar check back from their Republican governor.
The reason they need repairs is that all their cash goes to the bloated union pensions and healthcare costs, their massive debt levels (taken to kick the can) that the politicians fostered. Google 'MTA financials' and read for yourself. It's all right there.
With all due respect, do you liberal pols not see the ramifications of your actions throughout the years? Now to place yourselves as the solution to a problem you created is just sad. Sticking up for us? You are the ones that caused this. View Comment
Food stamps at an all time high. The govt actually ADVERTISES to get more people ON food stamps. So much for the Obama "recovery".
This must be a set up piece for higher taxes and more wealth distribution....that will kill business investment, raise costs and kill more jobs....leading to NEW calls for more wealth redistribution.
...wait for it....
By the way, the article states that "having a car with a full gas tank is necessary to get to grocery stores or food pantries." It is? Really? A FULL tank is required? Is the store 400 miles away? 'Free' gas must be next up.... View Comment
"5th steepest decline in the country"
This is what boosting frivolous spending (and the tax increases that follow later) get you. It may buy you votes today, but it only makes the job of competitiveness harder later. View Comment
