Legislative Drips

Today's Record-Journal is reporting that Represenative Beth Bye (D-West Hartford) is leading "several lawmakers" who have asked to stop buying water coolers in the Capitol and legislative building.

These folks want to save us all $11,600 per year on the bottled water for water coolers that usually go to these two buildings.

Of course, to save us that money, they want seven water fountains installed to replace the coolers. I don't know how much that will cost, but I think it's safe to say that the cost of installing seven water fountains on a government contract in public buildings will be more than $11,600.

I'm really pleased to see Rep. Beth Bye so interested in saving us money. This fascinates since she has voted with her party in lock step to keep our taxes high, business restricted and fuel costs at an all-time high.

No one buys your schtick, Rep. Bye. If you were interested in saving us money you'd be voting differently on almost every issue... not installing water fountains in two buildings none of your constituents ever go to.

If saving money on water is so important to you and your colleagues, please consider drinking out of the toilet... the same place you have helped send our economy.
