Take Back Our Republic Connecticut coordinator Gregory Byrnes and Executive Director John Pudner met with hundreds of “their closest friends” at the Connecticut State Capitol this Saturday afternoon. They took the message of how pay-for-play politics is the reason politicians take more money from residents. In Connecticut’s case, a toll is being voted on, but the law then gives politicians and bureaucrats the ability to raise rates as much as they want without ever going back to the voters. While we cropped the name and photo of the elected officials in the photo below, the verbiage was “Hey (State Rep name eliminated) … How much would ya need for your vote on tolls …?
Special thanks to Greg for setting up all the stops during the eventful Saturday.
