Welcome to the Connecticut Mirror

As if the internet didn't offer enough riches, there's a new must-see site for anyone who cares about Connecticut politics and government: the Connecticut Mirror.
It is a nonprofit that calls itself an "independent source of news and information about our state's government, politics and public policy."
Let's hope it flourishes.

Thanks for the info, I'll put them on my reading list. I've also become a fan of CT News Junkie. They're a good follow for people on Twitter.

CT New Junkie is another must-read. Christine Stuart is everywhere every day.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that Congress members could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn't pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered...in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do (should) not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ".
