Malloy's Numbers Don't Add Up To WinLIE: Malloy touted job growth by declaring, "If you draw a line at February 2010, we're actually creating more jobs on a per capita basis than any other state in New England."
TRUTH: Look at that quote carefully and you will see Malloy's quiet desperation to thwart the statistics that may drive him from office. Malloy was not governor in February 2010. He would not take office for almost a year. In order to distract voters from his dismal record, Malloy has to latch on to the record of his predecessor, Republican M. Jodi Rell, to obscure his own failure.
The biggest tax increase in the state's history will do that. Malloy's bad choices have had terrible consequences. Connecticut's recovery from the recession has been so erratic that in January of this year, the state's economy dropped 10,900 jobs. That's not a number Malloy is likely to give a nod to as voters prepare to render a formal verdict on his failures.
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy's numbers, whether polling, jobs or budget, don't add up to a win - Courant.com
