A new report released by Chicago-based Truth in Accounting ranked Connecticut dead last in the country for fiscal transparency, but that score isn’t sitting well with the Office of the Comptroller.

According to TIA, Connecticut’s score improved six points over last year, scoring a 50, thanks to a “timely release of the state’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report,” but was still behind North Carolina, which scored a 56.

We didn't do that great in FL, either. We got a 78 in the report..

This doesn't surprise me at all. Connecticut (or ConnectiSHIT) as I like to call it, has been under the rule of democrats for many, many years. Most of my life If I am not mistaken. The state, in spite of having some of the richest zip codes in the country, struggles constantly financially. They put money into the wrong places, and the income inequality here is pretty terrible. We used to be a strong manufacturing state but since most of those jobs have left (Pratt and Whitney, sikorsky to name a few) the state has been in serious decline. Many businesses left Connecticut under Dannel Malloy (Who after running the state into the ground moved to North Carolina) and our new governor has done nothing but propose higher taxes and limited cuts to the budget.

I live in a city in the south of the state, one of the worst run I have ever seen. Our Democrat mayor has been forced out by another democrat for being incompetent. Yet, no one makes a change. We have institutions like Yale, Wesleyan, Quinnipiac, all breeding libs like its nobody's business.

Case in point. I hate it here.
