HARTFORD – Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Jerry Labriola, Jr. released the following statement this morning in regards to “Tax Day.”
“On this Tax Day, we are reminded of the most crucial difference between our two parties. Republicans believe Connecticut families know best when it comes to how they should spend their money, but President Obama, Governor Malloy and Democrats believe government knows best.

“These out of control taxing and spending policies show what little regard President Obama and Dan Malloy have for our hard earned dollars. It’s time to restore fiscal sanity to Washington and Hartford by electing people who believe that Connecticut families know better than the government when it comes to spending their money.”
