Fasano Statement Regarding Budget Negotiations and Democrat Falsities

September 11, 2017

HARTFORD, Conn. – Senate Republican President Pro Tempore Len Fasano (R-North Haven) released the following statement regarding Democrat misrepresentations and lies about current budget negotiations.

“Democrats once again are incapable of telling the people of Connecticut the truth about budget negotiations,” said Sen. Fasano. “Their fiscal death grip on this state has choked the life out of Connecticut’s economy, hurt the poor, starved municipalities and continued to wreak havoc on taxpayers. In light of their absolute and non-wavering rejection of any meaningful structural changes for the state of Connecticut, they did not show up for their 12:30 p.m. meeting today. To use their tagline ‘Republicans Walked Out Again’ is simply a lie. They have used this excuse for three years in a row (at least they could try to find a new excuse). We were there, they weren’t. It is a shame that they have fallen back to their typical and predictable habits of one party rule and tried to bully their ill-fated economic policies.”
