    It’s a shame business can’t be attracted to our state and our city by lower taxes, less unnecessary regulation, a more business-friendly regulatory and tax environment, and attractive communities. Instead CT government chooses winners and losers — the select few get bribes to move or stay here, and the rest of us are losers for the oppressive government approach to business. Better to lower corporate taxes, lower all taxes, make CT a right to work state, and try to work our way out of the bottom 5 or 10 states fiscally and economically.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if establsihed local businesses with local employees could secure attractive state funding to expand their operations by hiring local employees. Dream on.
