CT ranked 20th... out of 50 last I checked. I'd hardly call that a "top" state or "among the best". Even 20th is far better than it should be as we, actual resident, can attest.

Apparently WalletBum didn't see the new round of monetary rape (taxes) Drop Dead Ned unleashed on us. If our lawmakers can't do their jobs then we need to return to a per diem pay system for them. Think of the money CT will save.


Two words....yeah, right! LOL


Apparently, they didn't factor in many elements (whether exposed or hidden) in this determination. I want to know what makes this one of the best states to live in because I have some feedback on that!
