Fwd: Malloy Budget Mess

URGENT ALERT!

I'm forwarding this press release from the 
CT GOP Chairman JR Romano 
because it's Very Important - URGENT
that you know what is coming in #MalloysMess

I've highlighted in Bold & Yellow the outrageous cuts that Malloy has in store for our families.

Urgent Action on your part is required: You need to Call the office of the governor and tell him that what he is planning is not acceptable and tell him to #StopHurtingFamilies

Once again this is an attack on our poor working families in CT! While the budget protects the cronies who got him elected; our families, our veterans, our seniors, our children are all under attack in this plan! Our most vulnerable who can't afford to send lots of money to the democrat election coffers are being attacked by these DANGEROUS Cuts.! 

Malloy is STEALING Our Taxes to pay off his Special Interest Groups and keep the special projects that benefit his crony friends! Malloy is clearly showing that he
  Does NOT CARE ABOUT OUR FAMILIES!! 

Another example of just how devoid of empathy and out of touch these democrats are in CT and across the land.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                               

CONTACT: J.R. Romano (info@ct.gop)

Dan Malloy's "Mini-Budget" Is A Slap in The Face For the People of Connecticut


HARTFORD –  After failing to build a consensus for a bipartisan budget deal to address the massive deficit caused by his disastrous tax-and-spend policies, Democrat governor Dan Malloy is putting forth<http://portal.ct.gov/Office-of-the-Governor/Press-Room/Press-Releases/2017/06-2017/Gov-Malloy-Releases-Detailed-July-1-Spending-Plan-Alongside-Proposed-Mini-Budget-Alternative> a "Resource Allocation Plan" to put in place with the expectation that he will not be able to pass a budget.

But while Malloy's plan protects his big union allies, it leaves the rest of Connecticut out to dry, making massive cuts to education funding, law enforcement, much needed aid for cities and towns across the state, and even ethics funding despite having himself been the subject of an investigation.

Here are just some of the main items for the most recent item of Dan Malloy's catastrophic agenda for Connecticut:

>   $7.4 million in cuts to Care4Kids TANF/CCDF

>   $14,804,521 in cuts to Temporary Family Assistance

>   $175,523 in cuts to the Election Enforcement Commission

>   $15,698 in cuts to the Office of State Ethics (B-9)

>   Eliminates property tax relief for veterans

>   $3,324,998 in cuts to the Division of Criminal Justice

>   Eliminates funding for Connecticut's Youth Employment Program and Opportunities for Long Term Unemployed

>   Eliminates funding for the Office of Protection and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities

>   Eliminates Department of Social Services funding for Protective Services for the Elderly

>   Cuts $515,833,717 in Department of Education funding for Education Equalization Grants

>   Cuts $1,212,066 in Department of Education funding for the American School for the Deaf

>   Cuts $42,337,171 in Department of Education funding for priority school districts

>   Cuts $28,701,582 in funding for the University of Connecticut

>   Cuts $14,774,971 in funding for the University of Connecticut Health Center

>   Adds $278,267,000 in retirement contributions for the Teacher's Retirement Board

>   Increases spending on debt service by $304,937,812

>   Keeps $293,577,508 in reserve for salary adjustments

Memorial Day: Why We Remember





Why Wo we Remember Memorial Day?

To many of our school children in our modern day with the proper history of American and world history no longer being taught, the reason for the holiday is being forgotten.

There are too many children no longer having actual knowledge of what wars of our recent past have been like as the older generations are dying off.

As the "community memory" of our elders die off the reason we celebrate Memorial Day is becoming lost to only being the reason that the family gathers and has a BBQ after going out shopping the sales...

Tax Freedom Day May 21st 2017

This year Tax Freedom Day is on
May 21st 2017 

This makes us the last state in the country to finally have worked enough to pay for the amount of state and federal income taxes that we are supposed to owe....

The way that it looks with the continual news of the mismanagement of the previous funds that were stolen out of our families mouths this date will be pushed back even further back next year... 
Each new report puts us further in the hole because there is no sense up at the capitol that spending must be cut so that our families are not hurt further...


If you are tired of these elected officials continuously stealing from our families then come on down to the capitol on May 21st 2017 & Tell them to STOP!!!
