    So much for the hope of an economic recovery.

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result – good luck with that West Hartford.

    All we need now is for the new administration to cut military spending next year.

    Well, it’s certainly not *all* we need, but shifting money from the military to meeting the needs of the people would certainly be a step in the right direction . . . but I get the feeling you didn’t mean it that way.

  6. Cynic said

    If E-Boat, UTC etc start cutting jobs, that doesn’t meet the needs of the people. More layoffs won’t help the State economy.

    The prior State legislature did little if anything to encourage business growth in the State. I would like to think that the new Legislature might be different, but that is hard to believe given the new numbers.
