Every year a large number of Democrats and liberals who are either independently wealthy, jobless and living with their parents, or don't have full-time jobs that actually require them to show up during the work day get together and conspire about how much more of our money they are going take from us.
They call this the Connecticut General Assembly.
Today was the opening day for the state House and Senate. It might seem like they were just in Hartford voting recently. That's because they were! While Connecticut is supposed to have a part-time legislature, the General assembly has managed to make it into session almost every month of the 2007 calendar year. A special session here... a special session there... sometimes more than one at once!
Governor Rell delivered her State of the State address, with some interesting proposals... some good, some bad. The session lasts three months, so we'll see what goes through the sausage press and comes out the other end.
Whatever it is... we'll be paying more for it.
