Shame on us for voting to keep these clowns in office. We're close to the bottom on every survey. To me, this means it's time to change. Let's do away with "party loyalty" and vote only for individuals who will cut the spending, cut regulations.

Only an ignorant fool would take anything wallethub has to say seriously.

...and the blather under this and all your other aliases. Don't you have anything better to do with your time?

You clowns keep voting in these right wing wacko kooks,and this is what we get. Being conservative is a disease.

You clowns keep voting in these left wing dingbats,and this is what we get. Liberalism is a disease.


You really seem to enjoy using "ignorant." Is it the only polysyllabic word you know? I think I'll ignore you.

Are drunk on the right wing kook aid again?

He LOVES getting attention, thats why he will not use his own user name.

Post on any of the user names, they are all the same person. Ignorant is putting it mildly. You could add: obsessed, creepy, gay, and stalker to that list.

Surprised he is not posting as you yet.

Queen Robtard With the same old delusional rambling day after day.. Thanks for the laugh queen.

RG the right wing wacko

Wallet hub is a hack site with Zero credibility

Connecticut is a hack state with Zero credibility

Rg you seem to be ignorant

With another term for Malloy and continuing one party rule in the Legislature I think we have a good shot at the bottom of the list. Watch out Mississippi!

Have you been drinking the right wing wacko kook aid again?
