    Vermont’s Republican U.S. Senate nominee Gerald Malloy said that “Vermonters are ready for change” after being “fed up” with the current leadership in the country during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday. “I can tell you campaigning in the last seven months [with] boots on the ground… Vermonters are ready for change,” Malloy told Breitbart News Saturday host, Breitbart News’ Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle. “Vermonters have common sense, and they see, you know, paying at the pump and paying at the grocery store, and they’re fed up with the performance… from their leadership in Congress, and they’re ready for...

    Wisconsin judge fines state elections commission for failing to remove thousands from voter rolls A Wisconsin judge on Monday found the state Elections Commission, as well as three of its members, in contempt of court for their failure to remove thousands of people from Wisconsin voter rolls in compliance with an order he imposed in December, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Judge Paul Malloy said the three Democratic commission members who have fought his order, Ann Jacobs, Julie Glancey and Mark Thomsen, must each pay $250 a day for every day they fail to comply, while the commission itself must...

    Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy warned Wednesday that mass shootings are being planned all over the country, and that everyone is likely to be affected as the tragic incidents continue to proliferate. "This is coming to your neighborhood," the Democratic governor said on CNN. "This could affect your grandchild, or your child. You're going to see people in your state killed in restaurants, and movie theaters, and schools, and in churches."

    Gov. Dannel Malloy on Monday proposed legislation to help Connecticut residents make up for $10 billion in lost federal tax deductions under the recent tax overhaul.His plan aims to assist Connecticut homeowners who face higher federal tax bills because the new law caps state and local tax deductions at $10,000 a year. To get around that cap, Mr. Malloy’s proposal would give towns authority to form charitable organizations that residents can contribute to in exchange for property tax credits.Charitable contributions kept their full deductibility under the tax overhaul.The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut also said in January...

    Connecticut, home to hedge fund billionaires alongside cities mired in poverty, is racing against the clock to pass a budget or face further spending cuts to education and municipal aid across the state. Nearly two months without a budget, Connecticut is getting crushed by a burdensome debt load that has squeezed spending and amplified legislative discord. State lawmakers must agree on a biennial budget soon or else Governor Dannel Malloy’s executive order to slash state aid to municipalities and eliminate school funding for some districts will go into effect in October. The state faces a $3.5 billion deficit over the...
  • [CT Gov] Malloy: Christie a bully for closing the beaches

    A political line has been drawn in the sand this summer, with the governors of Connecticut and New Jersey taking opposite sides on whether to keep state beaches open during a budget impasse — and throwing shade at each other. Connecticut still has no budget agreement, but Democrat Dannel P. Malloy signed an executive order last week to avert a government shutdown and keep state beaches and parks open for now. Contrast that with Republican Chris Christie, who basked in the sunshine with his family at a New Jersey state beach over the weekend that was closed to the public...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | June 2,2017 | WSJ
    According to the fiscal analyst, income-tax collections declined this year for the first time since the recession due to lower earnings at the top. Many wealthy residents decamped for lower-tax states after Mr. Malloy and his Republican predecessor Jodi Rell raised the top individual rate on more than $500,000 of income to 6.99% from 5%. In the past five years 27,400 Connecticut residents, including Ms. Rell, have moved to no-income-tax Florida, and seven of the state’s eight counties have lost population since 2010. Population flight has depressed economic growth—Connecticut’s real GDP has shrunk by 0.1% since 2010—as well as home...

    In a roomful of supporters and agency heads, tears broke the governor’s businesslike façade. Dannel P. Malloy said his rejection of a third term, a decision he announced Thursday afternoon, frees him from partisan politics so he can better steer the sharply divided General Assembly through its current budget crisis. In January 2019, Malloy will begin the next act of a life that began as a dyslectic child in Stamford, led to law school, a stint as a criminal prosecutor, mayor of his hometown and nearly seven years in the Governor’s Residence. […] With low popularity ratings, a $1.7 billion...

    Breitbart ^ | 3 Jun 2016 | Dr. Susan Berry 3 Jun 2016
    Connecticut – led by a Democrat legislature and governor and represented by an entirely Democrat congressional delegation – ranks as dead last among the states, owing largely to its massive debt obligations and unfunded liabilities. According to Mercatus, Connecticut’s fiscal state is “poor across all categories,” which cover cash, budget, long-term, citizen service-level, and trust fund solvency. The study finds: On the basis of its fiscal solvency in five separate categories, Connecticut ranks 50th among the US states and Puerto Rico for its fiscal health. Connecticut’s fiscal position is poor across all categories. With between only 0.46 and 1.19 times...

    Bloody Rubbish ^ | February 23, 2017 | Robert Willis
    Connecticut residents are fleeing in large numbers to escape their state government. It’s known to locals as the Connecticut Exodus. The once-beautiful state has been leveled by an abusive Democratic-majority government. Even the few Republicans actually holding office would be considered Democrats in other regions of the country. It’s called the bluest state in the nation, and I think it would be hard to argue it isn’t the California of the east — minus the jobs, companies, good weather and innovation, of course. Outsiders think of Connecticut as a rich state in the northeast; many don’t know that they have...

    HARTFORD >> Gun owners will see huge increases in permit fees that would raise millions of dollars to help the state combat its two-year, $3.6 billion deficit. As part of his budget, Malloy is proposing to increase the state portion of the pistol permit fee from $70 to $300. He also is proposing the cost of the initial 5-year pistol permit fee from $140 to $370.

    I received a copy of a letter sent by the Bishop of Rockford, Most Rev. David J. Malloy, to the priests of that diocese. In this letter, a follow up to their diocesan “Presbytery Day” (where he spoke to them about “challenges”), the bishop writes: Following that talk, I write now to ask for your cooperation on several matters that have since been referred to me in connection with my comments last September: First, as I noted at that time, we are all aware of the on-going discussion surrounding the celebration of the Mass “ad orientem“. However, for the reasons...

    Connecticut dropped 10 slots in a yearly CNBC ranking of the nation's top states for businesses. The state ranked 43rd this year, just behind Oklahoma. The rankings are measured by categories such as the cost of doing businesses, access to capital, business friendliness and the quality of life. The top five ranked states are Utah, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota and North Carolina. Connecticut ranked higher than two other New England states — Maine, ranked 46th, and Rhode Island, ranked 50th. "It's disappointing, but frankly not surprising we saw this drop," said Joe Brennan, president and CEO of the Connecticut Business and...

    Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s popularity rating has hit a new low, with a majority of registered voters disapproving of how the Democrat has managed the state’s economy, jobs, budget and taxes. A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows just 24 percent of registered voters approve of how Malloy is handling his job, while 68 percent disapprove. It’s a drop from Malloy’s prior lowest rating of 32 percent in October. Poll director Doug Schwartz says Malloy’s numbers appear to be linked to the state’s economy. Eighty percent of those surveyed say the state’s economy is “not so good” or...
  • Democrats Won't Meet With Malloy About Budget

    With two weeks left in the legislative session – and Connecticut facing a potential $922 million deficit next year -- the state budget talks have hit a stalemate as Democrats are refusing to meet with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy over personal and policy clashes. Democrats have harshly criticized Malloy's revised budget, which calls for deep cuts in educational cost-sharing funds and even no educational funding for wealthy communities like Greenwich and Madison. Some consider Malloy's cuts on education and the hospitals to be dead on arrival because they lack support from both Democrats and Republicans. Communities like West Hartford and...
