Malloy Attacks Hospitals.
Why does the Malloy Supremacy have a personal grudge against Connecticut’s hospitals ? The hospitals are the largest employers in most communities, providing health care services and are generally the hub of every major city and town in our small state. The animosity towards the hospitals makes no sense. First is was the historic spending reduction of $550 million, which will impact hundreds if not thousands of jobs , then it was the exaggerated attack on hospital compensation, then it was the blatant undermining of the proposed mergers in Waterbury. Matter of fact at one point the Supremacy gave “veto authority” of a hospital merger to the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, what knowledge or authority do they have over hospitals? Today, the Supremacy is trying to intimidate Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London County,[ Malloy, L+M trade barbs over hospital's labor practices ]obviously acting on behalf of the unions. We all know the Supremacy is a shill for the unions, that’s why we have a bus to nowhere, forced unionization of personal care assistants and a lame concession package for unionized state employees with guaranteed four years of no layoffs. But this personal animosity is costing hundreds of jobs of Connecticut residents. Why give $300 million to Jackson labs for 300 jobs , 10 years from now and cut the existing hospitals by $550 million? We all realize that hospitals don’t vote in elections but unionized employees do, but the ramifications of these actions by the chief executive officer of our state will have negative ramifications for years to come.
