In Woodbury it is the stress of the property values decreasing and the ever increasing of taxes.Read More People can not afford their taxes now. This years shell game, the First Selectman and the BOF Chair want everyone to believe that only 40% of the taxpayers taxes are going up. 40% increase in stress in those people's lives. Don't worry though the First Selectman and the BOF Chair have stated that no ones taxes are going up. ??? It's called talking out of both sides of your mouth. Tell the voters whatever they want to hear to get the budget passed. The voters have another chance to VOTE DOWN the proposed budget on the 23rd. Remember VOTE YES FOR HIGHER TAXES.

Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experiencedRead More it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks
This guy deserves his bad reputation.

My experience is not anecdotal, that is usually a one time situation. My experience spans 25 years,Read More in different industries, and being part of hiring thousands of people at all different job levels. I am sure there are companies who have discriminated but they are few and far between. With all the women in HR positions all over this country, if this was news, it would have been made news long ago. Plus, people are litigious and companies are not going to risk that. In addition, since I have been privy to employee lawsuits, I never saw ONE that had to do with pay disparity with men. Sometimes they had to do with sexual harrassment, however the biggest number, according to statistics, is retaliation for being on leave, and that has nothing to do with gender.

@Gus, counties don't actually mean anything in CT, just geographic borders. Bridgeport is as much ofRead More a money suck as any city in the state, and that's in FFC. There's plenty of affluent communities in New Haven, Hartford, Litchfield counties (and elsewhere) that pay their fair share. Fairfield County does pay a proportionally high amount of taxes, but that is in a select few towns - definitely not northern or eastern FFC, which is more in line with other parts of the state.

Paula says "oil loving greedy corportions get taxpayer -funded welfare. " ha. These areRead More the companies paying the most in taxes: 1. ExxonMobil • Income tax expense: $31.05 billion • Earnings before taxes: $78.73 billion 2. Chevron • Income tax expense: $20.00 billion • Earnings before taxes: $46.33 billion 3. Apple • Income tax expense: $14.21 billion • Earnings before taxes: $55.96 billion 4. Wells Fargo • Income tax expense: $9.10 billion • Earnings before taxes: $28.47 billion 5. Wal-Mart • Income tax expense: $7.98 billion • Earnings before taxes: $25.74 billion ================================= So Paula youre first statement is pretty far off mark. They are not getting our money, we are getting theirs. Exxon pays 39%income tax, chevron 43%. What's your tax rate? How much money would you estimate of your income taxes goes to a company that pays 31 billion? haha. ============================== As a Vietnam war vet, Republicans started the Iraq war. Dead soliders = 4500. Total dead = about 210,000. Vietnam a Dem war was 58,000 US soldiers dead 3 million total dead. Korean WarDEM, WW2DEM, WW1 DEM Total of those Dems war about 600,000 US soldiers and 4500 under REpubicans. Hmm you sure you want to call Republicans the war mongers. After 1 war and about 1/150th the casualties of Dem war mongering? Did you say a peep as all of that occured? Or are you sold by the Dem spin machine that makes everything completely different than what it really is. Oil companies that get like 600 mil 'back' after paying 90 billion in taxes ---net taxes 89,400,000,000 but the Dems focus on the 600 mio . what a joke. 43% tax rate and it goes to 41.8 and you call it welfare. ================ I included the 5 highest taxpayers. They include the evil oil company, the evil bank and the evil walmart. All those evil companies that pay tons but are described by the 'daily kos' of the world as not paying their fair share.
