Column: Malloy Enabler Ned Lamont Is “Deliberately Incoherent” On Tax Hikes In Connecticut

Lamont can’t be taken seriously on taxes...

The RGA writes:

While Connecticut Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ned Lamont tries to mislead voters about his support for hiking taxes on working families, his empty words aren’t fooling anyone.

In a new column for the Journal Inquirer, Chris Powell writes that Lamont can’t be taken seriously on taxes, calling him “deliberately incoherent on the issue.” Powell noted Lamont’s contradictory statements telling voters that taxes are too high even after he has “endorsed raising the sales tax and imposing tolls” while “having pledged to obey the government employee unions, whose members consume most state and municipal tax revenue.”

Just like Failed Governor Dan Malloy did when he pledged to not raise taxes in 2014, Lamont is offering empty promises that he has no plans to follow through on, claiming that he would reduce the tax burden even after he has come out in support of new tax hikes that would hurt working families.

Journal Inquirer: 

Income tax repeal 'plan' doesn't justify Democrats' hysteria

Neither can Lamont and the Democrats be taken seriously on taxes. Lamont is deliberately incoherent on the issue. Having endorsed raising the sales tax and imposing tolls and having pledged to obey the government employee unions, whose members consume most state and municipal tax revenue, Lamont also says taxes are too high.

Further, when Lamont and the Democrats say Stefanowski would destroy education, medical care, and the University of Connecticut, they really mean that all state government spending goes for sacred cows and there can be no economizing with them, nor even any auditing of them, though their excesses are often reported.
