I feel for you, Carole28. I'm a former born-bred in Connecticut who left more than 20 years ago for FL. I hated the left-leaning state legislature, the high sales tax, the high income tax, the incessant spending that Dems supported. It was a good place to work and make money when I was there, but the writing has been on the wall for many years. It is sad to see my home state decline year after year, but that's what clearly happens to Dem-led states. Witness California. I hope you do get to move soon because I think CT is beyond hope and there are still many wonderful places to live in America.
