    How about these two propose something that will actually help get the economy moving in this state and maybe actually create some jobs.

    1. Connecticut is Circling the Drain

      Remember Blumenthal’s answer in the debate about how to create a job?

      That’s why these people will never help us create jobs.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your blog? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space
    it out better?

    No Jobs Democrats. Just feel good taxpayer funded spending. The designation will likely cost jobs.
