Connecticut small businesses need a savior

With the news that we are looking at another billion-dollar-plus deficit in the next budget cycle, it is apparent that more tax increases will be coming. The other option in the near future is to drastically reduce the cost of government employees, but I have little confidence that the current administration will be able to negotiate with the public employee unions to reduce the size and cost of government. Is there a savior out there somewhere? Please, if you are reading this, please, I beg you to step forward now, because soon it will be too late as we fall over the cliff.
