Bristol State Rep. Ziogas says there’s good news on older retired state employees: ‘they’re dying off.’ And the crowd laughed

No, this is not fake news.  At a Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce breakfast in Bristol on Tuesday morning, featuring state lawmakers, State Rep. Chris Ziogas, D-Bristol said the following, when it came to the state budget crunch and pensions of state employees:

“I hate to say this, but the good news is they’re (older state employee retirees) dying off.  They are an older group,” Ziogas said to laughter.

Ziogas refused to buy into theory the state should privatize some public services, saying the state is not a business and must live up to its “obligations” to citizens.

Ziogas just started his first term in the legislature.  Off his “good news” statement, one wonders if it might be his last.
