COMPRTOLLER LEMBO: Connecticut "to end Fiscal Year 2013 with a deficit of at least $415 million"

Here's the latest grim news from State Comptroller Kevin Lembo...

...and you know Jon Pelto had something to say about this.

According to Lembo's press release, "Statewide agency appropriations projected to year end are running above their appropriated levels even after consideration of OPM's estimated deficiency appropriations...Medicaid - the largest single gross appropriation line-item in the budget - is significantly above the budget target.

To translate that into common speech, even as late as last week, the Malloy Administration was finding it impossible to tell the truth.

When putting together the budget, the Malloy Administration underestimated what the state would need to cover Medicaid expenses.  In addition, the Malloy Administration claimed it would achieve savings it never achieved and finally, the poor economy has meant that the number of Medicaid cases as grown.  As of now, Malloy's Medicaid budget missed the mark by more than a quarter of a billion dollars.

Incredibly, even now, Malloy and his handlers refuse to come clean with the Connecticut media or the public.
