GovernorMalloy of Connecticut sold his soul to hedge fund managers and corporate reformers and rolled out his 'austerity budget! "In classic fashion the plan slashes the full array of vital services while giving the wealthy yet another tax break. it makes absolutely no effort, what-so-ever, to require Connecticut’s richest resident to pay their fair share in taxes. But their budget certainly targets the middle class and all working families, along with those who rely on state services to lead more fulfilling lives. Call it the new American Way. The billionaires, millionaires and corporate elite who fund charter schools give generously to Democratic and Republican politicians and the politicians return the favor by shifting public funds into the coffers of the privately owned, but publicly funded charter schools."
