Sign my petition: Axe the tax on your social security benefits

October 24, 2011

Connecticut has made a Top 10 list, but it’s not a good one to be on.

Our state is ranked among the Top 10 Worst States in which to spend your golden years. (Source: TopRetirements.com)

One reason for that is because Connecticut is one of 14 states to tax Social Security income.

Why, with our already high cost of living, are we taxing Social Security income?

Shouldn’t we be doing all we can to help seniors and those on fixed income, especially during these difficult times?
I am asking the same questions up at the State Capitol.

Taxing your social security benefits is wrong and we need to get rid of it. If you feel the same way, here’s how you can help me.

Please sign my petition below to axe the tax on your social security benefits.I will present your signatures to Gov. Malloy and to Democrat leaders to show them that the public is demanding that this tax be taken off our state books.

Please do not tax our social security benefits, it is hard enough to live on a fixed income now.

Dan Zaborowski,
Len keep up the good work.My problem is that when I turned 65 I denounced the Seniors who have the biggest voice,but rather sit in the Max Muravnik center and moan about what is happening as opposed to getting things done,such as what you are doing here to help them. I an Veteran in a Catch 22 with Social Security as Ronald Reagan accused all who retired from Civil Srevice of Double Dipping OMG we worked for it and penalized.While others who retire from private enterprise get to all.None of our State Senators in Washington will provide the relief from the Windfall Profit. Carry on with your good work and I will work towards your reelection to keep you in the capitol

Patricia Ryan,
Thank you!

David Vosgien,
Keep up the good work!
