Yankee Institute statement on President Biden’s visit to Connecticut

HARTFORD (October 15, 2021) — “Yankee Institute welcomes President Biden to our beautiful state. He’d be wise to remember that Connecticut has been a laboratory for many of the same misguided policies being promoted in the ‘federal reconciliation infrastructure bill.’ The effects are all too evident in our high taxes, sluggish economic performance, and weak population growth. 

We respectfully suggest that President Biden use his visit to examine how crafting public policy to benefit political labor unions leads to higher costs for taxpayers and lower-quality services for the people who count on them.” 

Statement attributable to Carol Platt Liebau, President of Yankee Institute for Public Policy.
