Democratic Gov. Malloy of CT pushed through a huge tax increase and was trying to get modest Union concessions to close the CT. Budget gap in what he called a shared sacrifice. After getting the tax hikes fully implemented the Union negotiators took half a billion out of the original concession package that was needed and the Union rejected that yesterday.

Go F yourself.

The rejection was an emphatic slap to both the union leadership and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat who was elected in November with enthusiastic support from labor...
