Colapietro's take on the state budget

State Sen. Tom Colapietro said this morning that the $37.6 billion, two-year spending planapproved by lawmakers last night is "a fair budget."
"It takes care of most of the people," the Bristol Democrat said. "It's a budget with a heart."
Colapietro said the proposal, which Gov. Jodi Rell has not signed, would keep the technical school and courthouse in Bristol open, two institutions threated with closure by the governor.
"The school is saved," Colapietro said.
Colapietro said the budget isn't perfect, but it's a good compromise.
"We need a budget, for everyone's sake," the senator said.
Colapietro also took aim at those who opposed the spending plan, incuding state Rep. Bill Hamzy, a Plymouth Republican whose 78th District includes northwestern Bristol.
"I dare any of the no votes to say they did anything for their communities," Colapietro said. "If you vote no, it just means you're being downright stubborn."
Hamzy could not be reached this morning.

This union thug does what he's told.

There is no heart here, but more misery for everyone, the poor, the Middle Class, businesses and anyone who would think, even consider moving a business into Connecticut. Sen Colipietro is lost in time. He would be one of the Ludite characters from "Atlas Shrugged" vilifying the successful, always harboring some grudge and then redistributing money to his buddies at the union hall. Working people in Bristol do understand that companies and jobs aren't created out of thin air. The formation of capital and investment is where it starts before the first employee, union or non-union, is signed up. Colipietro thinks everything is unfair and the people up on the hill are out to get him. He is pathetic.

Healy since when have you cared about the needy ?

Go Chris Go!!! No one else could have said it better!

Hamzy's no vote did not increase borrowing, did not increase taxes, did not increase the deficit. We could use a lot more of this kind of nothing.

Hamzy's vote does exactly what he always does......nothhing !

Healy is the only kind the republicans can find. A three time drunk. He has no room to talk about anyone. He's the worst.He's just lucky he didn't kill somebody. Another republican who like his X Governor is only sorry he got caught . But what do you expesct from a friend of Mocababies?

You got it Mr. nice guy. You reap what you sow. Can't take it ? Get off of it then. Or let us show you that you aren't the only ones who can act like you are. Dumb!

Kind of like Art Ward? Except Chris H. only wnet to one party, he's not a bar fly

Healy did nothing nearly as bad as like Ted Kennedy...ever

Thanks Chris Healy, you're a great American. But just to let you know, Tommie Toupe's name is spelled C-o-l-a-p-i-e-t-r-o.

Budget with a heart? Hardly. When the tumbleweeds are blowing through Bristol and the few people left are wearing rags and scrounging for food, then we'll all know what kind of heart Tommy was talking about. This budget will have us circling the toilet.

Eddie said...

Artie is a bar fly for sure. Any given night he is either at the Legion, sportys, social club or the polish club, heck some nights all of them. Think he will get off on a DUI if caught? Oh I am sure.

One thing good comes of this blog. It allows us to see why we're not Republicans. All 4 seem to have the same Mocawbre mentality.No issues but lots of namecalling. Not enough to stand toe to toe with those who they try to humiliate. I don't see any prizes there.

Wake up out of your Marxist, socialist utopia wet-dream. The formation of capital IS where the economy starts. You wouldn't know living in the world of acedemic na-na land, but a mass of people with no place of employment is what we call poverty. Just as all the people in Somalia and other third world countries.

It's amazing that people like you exist here in the US that have no respect for our country and no appreciation as to why we have enjoyed the best standard of living in the history of our world.

5:55 AM, I agree. Sad isn't it? The R's have slunk to a new low with their wannabe mentality... childish insults and namecalling. It's humiliating.

LAugh all you want at the republican leadership digging holes for ourselves, real or perceived, but at least it within the RTC and not the 8 million dollar defecit created (and that is jsut the start ) by this current administaration. You reap what you sow and you get the government you deserve. So if you are not going to vote these idiots out then STFU.

anonwestconn: The GM execs can only do what they can after paying out to the union and getting no work in return. I was there. You keep studying, or go do some factory work. Then tell us about it.
