HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy didn’t give any ground Monday when asked about Democratic criticism of his mid-September emergency budget cuts.

Democratic lawmakers have blasted Malloy’s decision to reduce Medicaid payments to hospitals and funding for mental health and substance abuse treatment, homeless shelters, and residential and day supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“I think it’s time that we sit together with the governor and talk about what’s appropriate to be cut here,” Rep. Cathy Abercrombie (D-Meriden) said last week. “These rescissions are not appropriate and many of my colleagues are saying the same thing.”

    Why is Danny Boy refusing to hold a special session and sitting down and working with the Dems and Republicans and actually craft a budget that makes sense, instead of passing a budget that wasn’t balanced in the first place! We have a chance to fix his mess but as per is usual SOP he ignores the will of the people and does what he wants. And we wonder why people leave this state..Just look at NY and see what is going on there and a great job Cuomo has done.
