Use in­ter­net taxes to pay down debt

The Norwalk Hour - - OPINION -

Now that the U. S. Supreme Court has al­lowed states to col­lect taxes on in­ter­net sales to those in­di­vid­ual states, politi­cians will be rush­ing to cash in on this new in­come stream. Well, Se­na­tor Duff, if you are re­ally “stand­ing up for us,” and Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bruce Mor­ris, if you are re­ally “for us,” then I call upon you to in­tro­duce leg­is­la­tion in both the Con­necti­cut Se­nate and House to des­ig­nate all of this new in­come to pay­ing down the state debt.

No pro­posed projects, no new projects and no di­ver­sion for present pro­grams — pay down our debt be­cause it’s drag­ging us down (one of the rea­sons we’re #50 in liv­abil­ity).

And if you don’t, maybe we need a new party in charge in Hartford, like David Ste­mer­man.

Hard­ing Dies Norwalk
