From the Courant:
Rell’s spokesman, though, responded Wednesday night that the Democratic plan is balanced partially with “accounting gimmicks” and proposals for savings that may never be realized.
“There’s an abundance of chicanery in this budget,” said Christopher Cooper. “The Democrats have spent the last 84 days claiming they were looking for ways to balance the budget. Apparently, their search ended in the taxpayers’ pockets.”
This from the administration that decided an $8+ billion budget deficit was easier dealt with if it was only $6 billion dollars, and then only by closing 2/3 of it with stimulus money and other one-time measures. Cooper may be confused by the “chicanery” of a budget that actually balances.
