That's great. Why don't you build a Westfield Shopping Center on the moon while you're at it... there will be just as many people left in Connecticut using this tremendous infrastructure improvemet as there are currently in space after all the tax increases this guy has planned for us.
Sadly, U.S.Rep Chris Shays stood with Amann to endorse this idiocy, and therefore, he should be politically skinned as well. After all, it's a real pleasure to have an unabashed tax-increaser as the lone remaining Republican Congressman in the northeast.
I am sure we all remember the way Democrats under Amann in the legislature stood in the way of the Republican effort to cut the gas tax last year? Well, that crafty Speaker attached the GOP gas tax cut to one of the versions of his tax-raising budget and when the GOP voted against it, he pointed and jumped saying he had them on record voting against their own tax cut... like anybody was retarded enough to buy that. Apart from him.
Well, not as if I really need to point this out, but apparently he was less than genuine in his offer to cut that gas tax.
So this is what we have Connecticut... our Speaker looks across this state, where you and I struggle under a tax burden he has helped create... the largest in the nation in fact, and says we aren't paying enough. This same man wants to be governor.
Go ahead Connecticut... keep voting for Democrats. Who needs money anyway?
