Budget blues...

My eyes are growing weary trying to navigate through the recently enacted state budget, looking for what is and is not included. So far, i find very little in there to like.

I've mentioned the cigarette tax - soon to be $2 a pack.

No relief from rising gasoline prices. On the contrary, we'll see the price inch up another 2-cents per gallon thanks to the legislature.

No real property tax relief - despite on the clamoring about it being a priority.

And no relief from rising electric rates.

Not a banner year for Hartford lawmakers at all.

But ordinary folks, the only good news is that they're just about done - which means they can do us no more harm for another six months.
