00:00 - 00:03Governor Lamont, they have started protesting tolls here
00:04 - 00:05...and here..
00:05 - 00:07The Berlin Turnpike through to Hartford
00:08 - 00:12The population recognizes that
00:12 - 00:15Tolls are merely another form of taxation.
00:17 - 00:19What do we have to distract them?
00:19 - 00:21Gun control, LGBTQ, XL Center upgrades?
00:24 - 00:26Governor, we have...
00:27 - 00:28We have...
00:31 - 00:33...we have used every distraction we have.
00:34 - 00:36We have nothing left.
00:53 - 00:58Everyone who doesn't believe that we will use toll money to fix the roads, leave now.
01:13 - 01:15To FIX the ROADS!
01:15 - 01:17Tell them we will fix the ROADS!
01:18 - 01:23They can't know the transportation lockbox is a sham!
01:25 - 01:28They bought it during the election...
01:29 - 01:31They should buy it now.
01:31 - 01:34They couldn't have suddenly gotten wise,
01:34 - 01:37someone must have leaked our plans
01:37 - 01:40to build another busway and railway!
01:40 - 01:42Governor, the busway loses money every year.
01:42 - 01:46I don't care! We need it!
01:46 - 01:48Governor, it doesn't even make 10% of what we put into it.
01:48 - 01:52Then we put more money into it!
01:53 - 01:54Tolls, dammit!
01:56 - 01:57We need more of their money to spend!
01:57 - 02:00Do you all want to lose your benefits, your pensions?
02:00 - 02:03Then you'll pass the toll bill
02:04 - 02:08And put tolls EVERYWHERE!
02:08 - 02:13We need more revenue, not spending control. People can't leave if they can't afford to.
02:14 - 02:16We will have them by the balls.
02:17 - 02:21They might hate us, but they'll never vote us out.
02:27 - 02:29We need this money.
02:30 - 02:34I can feel the money coming in.
02:34 - 02:36We can squeeze every drop of cash from them
02:41 - 02:42Vote my tolls in.
02:43 - 02:47Vote my tolls in or so help me, I will tax you to death!
02:48 - 02:53We control both the House and the Senate
02:54 - 02:56It shouldn't be this difficult.
02:56 - 02:59It will be a flush of money from our own people
03:00 - 03:02and they'll be too stupid to realize what we're doing.
03:04 - 03:07It's not your fault for voting for him.
03:14 - 03:16We'll do it again.
03:19 - 03:23If it doesn't pass, we will do it next term.
03:25 - 03:26Next term...
03:31 - 03:33The money will come.
03:40 - 03:46In the meantime, we can always find something else to tax.
03:46 - 03:49Or permit a new casino.
03:53 - 03:56The money will come.
