Dannel Malloy is being called “America’s Worst Governor” by The National Review. TNR sites Governor Malloy’s “suite of taxes” including increasing the state sales tax to 6.35% from 6%, levying additional taxes on cigarettes and alcohol, slapping new taxes on luxury goods and removing tax exemptions on essentials like non-prescription drugs. Despite all this Connecticut did not erase it’s sizable budget deficit, and it’s now projected to hit $1.1 billion in 2015. This is one article you will want to share with other voters!
