Today, House Republican Leader Themis Klarides commented on the most recent revenue figures.

“This latest data confirms what we suspected. Our deficit has continued to grow and absent fundamental changes in the way we run the government, Connecticut will face that prospect. Huge tax hikes without significant reductions in spending are not the answer,’’ Klarides said.

Revenues are off in a number of sectors including real estate and sales tax projections are underperforming, she noted.

Klarides added that Republicans remain willing to make the tough choices and do right by the taxpayers of Connecticut.

“Republicans are continuing to work on a Deficit Reduction Plan that they are prepared to offer to deal with the current red ink,” she said.

“The state’s finances, of course, will continue to decay because we have failed to institute any significant changes to stabilize our finances. These new deficit numbers were foreshadowed by last month’s job loss report,” she said.  “But we do not have to accept the ‘permanent deficits’ as the OPM [Office of Policy and Management] chief has described the situation.”

She added, “Republicans offered reasonable alternatives to address the immediate deficit and added a five-year plan that would have resulted in actual surpluses.”
