The state of Connecticut had the highest gasoline tax in the entire United States. What did we find with the investigation about that? We found that the state actually increased the retail price so high due to the taxes that it actually generated less tax revenue than before the increases.
The time has come for serious leadership and direction that works for WE THE PEOPLE OF CT. The time has come to put politics aside and fix a real problem to finally get our state on the right path forward. We all know what the problem is. We can debate who causes the problem and why – politics is the real issue here and both sides of the aisle are to blame, but real harm has been done and continues to be done to our state. It is time to care more about fixing the problem than about politics.
