To the editor:
Higher taxes are the last thing we need in Connecticut, but that’s what will happen in 2016 if Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has his way. (“Fix, improve transportation system without tax increases and tolls”, Chris Powell column, Jan. 6)
The governor says he “absolutely” believes Connecticut’s residents will “rise to the challenge” of paying for his $100 billion transportation plan. Democrats in Hartford have hiked our state taxes twice by record amounts over the past five years.
Exactly what do you think Gov. Malloy means when he says taxpayers will “rise to the challenge”?
Our Republican budget alternative plan contained no new taxes and no tolls while funding our transportation priorities for decades.
