LEE ELCI - RECENT COLUMNS

Deeply disappointed by Connecticut DEEP

If it's my job to rescue injured or sick animals, why are my tax dollars going to the DEEP? What exactly does the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection do?

Connecticut Democrats again prepare to hit us with higher taxes

How about if the state helps the feds enforce illegal immigration laws and ends all sanctuary city policies, in the process creating substantial state savings?

Either simplify federal tax or cue Godzilla

I never get a refund. Each year I hold my breath, do my taxes, and then inevitably rumble around the house for the next 48 hours slamming doors, kicking furniture and muttering the ugliest of obscenities.

Cut student-athletes in on riches being made

The NCAA reeks of socialism. Let the market decide worth. Implement a fully transparent free market capitalist system

Tolls then, tolls now; still hate them

Why do I hate tolls? Let me count the ways.

State Republicans would be foolish to get fingerprints on budget -- again
