WASINGTON – President Donald Trump rolled out his long-awaited infrastructure plan on Monday, which was quickly panned by Connecticut’s Democratic lawmakers, who are backing a rival proposal. Both plans face major challenges on the road to becoming reality.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is rolling out his infrastructure plan this week, and the first proposal would privatize the nation’s air traffic controllers, including the 17 that direct takeoffs and landings at Bradley International Airport.
About 9,500 parents would lose Medicaid, fewer seniors would receive home care, mental health and substance abuse treatment providers would receive millions of dollars less from the state, and school-based health centers would see a 10 percent funding cut under the budget plan Gov. Dannel P. Malloy proposed Wednesday.
WASHINGTON – Connecticut lawmakers are promoting a plan they say would shore up the solvency of the Social Security system for 75 years — and give about 11 million seniors a tax break. U.S. Rep. John Larson, D-1st District, and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., introduced bills in the House and Senate Tuesday they say would eliminate a projected shortfall in the Social Security program.
