CT’s Taxpayer Return on Investment is One of The Worst in Nation
The financial news seems to get more gloomy everyday.
Recently, I shared study results that said CT is one of the worst states in America for retirement and now this. Wallet Hub did their annual study on Taxpayer Return on Investment and the Nutmeg State ranks #45. Our neighbors in New York did not do much better, coming in a #41.
To reach this determination, they weighed factors like:
- School Systems - #2 in America
- Roads & Bridges
- Hospital Systems
- Violent Crime Rate - 4th Lowest
- Water Quality
- % of Residents in Poverty
After all of that we ended up with an R.O.I. of 45th in the nation? If you take out our wonderful school ratings and low violent crime numbers, we'd be dead last by a mile. What did I expect? This is about right, you only need to look at your wallet and compare it to your environment to know what your return on investment is, and things are out of whack in CT.
In other astonishing news, the study found that a whopping "73% of people think the government doesn’t spend their tax dollars wisely."

We are the forgotten here in the Constitution State and I'm starting to think I'm a glutton for punishment.
