Editorial: Connecticut Budget Hits 'Weakest Members' of Society

If, as Gandhi once said, “a nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members,” then the part of this nation that’s called Connecticut isn’t doing so great.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy recently announced another round of budget cuts, and the Department of Developmental Services is taking the biggest hit — $8.4 million, on top of the cuts it suffered in 2012 and 2014. The colleges and the courts were also asked to tighten their belts, and that’s certainly a problem; both of those institutions have already had to make cuts.
