Say, here's a novel idea

 Hey, it's the Willie Sutton principle

Hey, it's the Willie Sutton principle

Hartford Democrats, facing $1.5 billion deficits in each of the next two years, eying increasing sales tax and highway tolls.  In addition to Malloy's own proposal to raise property taxes by dumping a third of teachers' pension costs on towns, we can almost certainly expect a rise in income, estate and gift taxes.

Malloy would pay for half that $1.5 billion deficit, by the way, by cutting state employees' pay by $700 million. Since that will never happen, we can predict with confidence that Greenwich is in the crosshairs. Oh, joy.
