Is Raimondo worse than Chafee?

 

 

A few years ago it did not seem possible Rhode Island would find a Governor worse than Linc Chafee but Governor Raimondo has brought new meaning to the phrase "hold my beer" (perhaps a Gansett) while becoming a walking/ talking nightmare who seems hell bent on destroying the remains of the biggest little. Only four months into her second term and Raimondo has dwarfed into some kind of Randi Weingarten union hack. Sources claim Raimondo wants to mend fences with the unions over the 2011 pension reform and has decided to "open the vault" for the unions who make their home on Smith Hill.

Sources also say her fellow Democrat Governors were shocked that Raimondo (who touted her 53% mandate win in November to win the National Democrat Governors Chairperson seat) has fallen to a 40% approval rating four months later. Huh?  Much like an athlete who shrinks when they stop using steroids, the real Gina numbers demonstrate how she stole the November state election with fraud mail ballots. Next door, Governor Charlie Baker has remained almost double Raimondo in both approval rating and % wins in elections. The unions are out of control pushing insane bills that no reasonable elected leader would support.

Meanwhile, the cities of Providence, Warwick, Pawtucket are all on the verge of bankruptcy. People are leaving the state in droves with no jobs or wealth coming in and an economic slowdown is coming. Raimondo seems to be whistling while the Titanic approaches the iceberg. State spending and hiring continues at an obscene pace while gambling revenues are way off along without any form of fiscal responsibility. The inmates are truly running the asylum. Worse than Chafee? Yup.
