Shelton\u2019s three Republican state legislators are criticizing the two-year budget unveiled by Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. They said the proposed spending plan \u201cstrikes hardest at those he claims to be helping,\u201d according to a Republican press release. State Sen. Kevin Kelly and state Reps. Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty claimed the governor is \u201cviolating his repeatedly avowed pledge to not increase taxes,\u201d and is continuing Connecticut down a path of policies that have produced anemic economic growth. \u201cThe governor\u2019s budget actually backtracks on the progress we have made regarding some aging-in-place initiatives,\u201d said Kelly, claiming Malloy\u2019s plan balances the budget \u201con the backs of Connecticut seniors and others.\u201d 'Failure to deliver' Perillo said the proposed budget \u201crepresents more of the same failure to deliver for Connecticut\u2019s families, seniors and college graduates hoping to find work in the state they grew up in.\u201d According to McGorty, \u201cThis budget fails to support all of the people the governor claims it helps, and delivers the tab for higher taxes and increased spending right to the middle class.\u201d In his last budget, Malloy had offered about $550 million in tax breaks to take effect after the 2014 election, but \u201cthis new budget rolls back all but $62 million of those scheduled cuts while raising $915.6 million in new revenue,\u201d according to the GOP release. The legislators said Malloy wants to increase state borrowing, raise personal income taxes for single filers, \u201ccement\u201d the corporate surcharge tax indefinitely, and increase the business registration fee.
