Catching Up With Governor Malloy
Yesterday, I asked the outside world to submit questions for Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Facebook and via email. The response reminded me of why I wouldn't want his job.
A lot of people are really mad at him for raising taxes.
A lot of other people are really mad at him for cutting spending.
A lot of other people are really mad at him for extracting concessions from state workers.
A lot of other people are mad at him because the concessions are nowhere near meaty enough to address the state's deficit problems.
Given the deficit he inherited, it's hard to see how he could avoid raising taxes, cutting spending and extracting concessions from state workers, but there are apparently plenty of people who think he should have avoided at least one of those three.
Malloy is in studio today. He's got a storm and a new education commissioner to talk about. We'll see what else we can cover on today's show.
