Budget Considerations

This income analysis explains what has happened in Connecticut on the Republican watch. The economic reality is nightmarish.

America suffered a 2.8% drop in median household incomes in nearly every state between 1999 and 2005.

Connecticut's drop? A whopping 4.1%.

The Washington Monthly's quip about Texas' 8.9% drop;

I'll say one thing, though: those boys down in Texas sure did a whole lot better under Clinton than they have under Bush. If they were smart, they would have voted for Gore and kept the Shrub under wraps in Austin, where he couldn't have done so much damage to their economy.

Be sure to thank Rob Simmons and Joe Lieberman for helping you learn downward mobility. We couldn't have done it without their negligence.
