you want to bring back business to rent or lease in the malls? then cut the state tax extremely high tax burden. it means ct residents(what is left of them) to have more money to spend, and it means the chains or individual retailers will have more(untaxed) dollars to spend for rent. simple? yes. but does the state get it? not yet.

If you want the state tax burden to drop, petition Congress to spend more CT federal income tax in CT! Right now, for every $1.00 we contribute, the Federal government only spends about $0.61 here! The rest goes to states like New Mexico, Alabama, Mississippi, Alaska, North know, those "rugged individual" states.

Or, you can just leave for one of those 'low cost' states as many are doing. Eventually their local and state taxes will rise to cover the shortfall in Federal government handouts. Enjoy!

Also, we need REAL jobs. Not retail crap that vanishes in a puff of smoke every time people get scared about money.

All those great jobs created in the last 10 years? BS cell phone stores and luxury retail. Not sustainable. So I just don't care about retail, we need manufacturing and arts and science-related work here.
