I want to have a bill drafted that requires every person who serves in the legislature to have an IQ over 60 before they can serve. I know... you're laughing because you think that I am hoping to get rid of 80% the Democrats in one fell swoop. Not true!
While I may disagree with almost everything Democrats do, and question their motives, I actually believe that they do not do TRULY stupid things that often.
However, last week, Rep. Peter Tercyak (D-New Britain) said something that can really only be characterized as pure stupidity.
Last week Christopher Keating of the Courant reported that state revenues are expected to be between $60 million and $100 million below expectations. Tercyak, vice chair of the legislature's Appropriations Committee uttered these frightening words:
"If we have another blizzard, I'm in favor of plowing only one lane of highway and putting the rest of the money to the nonprofits."
As you can guess, Tercyak works for a non-profit, so this can be seen for the noble, selfless non-political act it surely is.
Secondly, how out of touch do you have to be to be so bent on benefitting yourself and your friends that you are willing to jeopardize public safety to accomplish it.
Congratulations New Britain... you have yourself a real genius there.
So, the way I figure it, if someone helps me get my bill passed, Tercyak will be ineligible to run again this year, and next winter we will still get all highway lanes plowed.
