John Larson, a Democrat in the first district, was re-elected in the House. Joe Courtney won re-election in the second congressional district according to the Hartford Courant. Rosa DeLauro and Jim Himes won re-election in the third and fourth districts respectively. Chris Murphy won in the fifth district, according to the Hartford Courant.

    All told, including vacations, insurance, legal fees for contract negotiation, strikes, etc: union labor costs hundreds of times more than migrant workers. For many small contractors and other privately held small businesses, the choice of going union is not possible. In fact, in the construction business, union members frequently contract illegal workers themselves in order to generate a profit that can sustain their operations and cost of living.
    Please address reality Louis.
    Waterbury is wholely unattractive to high tech businesses and any other major employers. It’s one of the only places in CT that is susceptible to a smog cloud. That entire valley region is unattractive. In order to make it more attractive to businesses, this state would certainly have to SPEND money. The old adage, “It takes money to make money” finds truth in many situations. There are no free or easy ways to claw your way out of tough times.
    We in this country cannot be afraid of having creditors, most of us here are used to it already. What we need is pragmatic and efficient regulation on the financial industry in order to prevent the absurd derivative gambling and keep in check the greed of the banking barons.

    I like strawberries in my Oatmeal. If you put them on the bottom of the bowl and then put the oatmeal on top the berries steam a little bit and get so sweet.

    What was CT thinking! The rest of the U.S. wises up and elects fiscally responsible people and we’re stuck w/ Hime and DeLauro! There isn’t a tax or transfer payment they don’t like….

    We shall tax and spend our way to prosperity!
    We shall force the evil corporations to make more jobs by taxing them!
    We shall lock in union wage increases and increase everyone’s wealth!
    We shall raise income taxes of the rich and they’ll be glad to stay in CT to pay for their evil ways!

    Sounds great!
