(WTNH) -- Folks are weighing in on the state's fiscal cliff, the McMahon campaign workers who've finally been paid, and about UI asking for rate hikes to recoup the money they spent during Sandy. Here's tonight's Voice of the People.
Sharon from Watertown said, "United and CL&P, they should not get any extra money from their customers. They should have put aside money for repairs. They know storms happen."
Joe from Branford said, "Millions and millions of dollars go through the casinos tax-free. That money should be taxed."
Bob from New Haven said, "If those people up in Hartford can't figure out if you keep raising taxes, people spend less, and you don't make taxes, I think what has to happen is they all need to get a 20 percent pay cut."
Steve from Farmington said, "Those affected had been receiving checks, started receiving checks, but you reported it in a negative way by showing on the street commons, the McMahon employees who still seem to be cranky for some reason. Now I'm not a McMahon supporter, nor did I vote for her, but I think this is really kind of piling it on."
Dawn from New Haven said, "A hundred million dollars and she can't pay people checks ranging in the amount from 400 to 800 dollars? It's a shame and it's so very sad, but luckily Channel 8 came to the rescue, and that was the good news for the day."
