Democrats and Republicans don’t agree on much. They especially don’t agree on economic policies and what will be necessary to grow the economy. The GOP view at the national, state and local levels is pretty much limited to cutting taxes and gutting regulations. Do these things, they say, and economic growth and prosperity will follow.
This has been tried before and has failed spectacularly. The hard right took over in Kansas, implementing massive tax cuts in the hopes of stimulating economic growth. The results were a disaster. Similar things happened in Wisconsin, Louisiana and Michigan. Now the GOP wants to do the same thing nationally and will try to do the same thing here if they get power. We don’t want to see Connecticut turn into Kansas.
