Blumenthal should be far less worried about Taylor Swift / Ticket Master issues and be doing everything in his power to protect all CT residents, but here we are.

He's in the federal government. You want him to push a federal law to protect just CT?

Not what I said. I'd like him to be less concerned with getting in front of cameras and on Twitter talking about Taylor Swift/ Ticket Master and spend more time working towards and talking about issues that impact most residents of our state. IMHO, it's a bad look spending time talking about concert sales gone wrong when the electric companies are going to be impacting thousands of people with a massive rate hike.

I know where he works and who he works for. Some of those people are on fixed incomes and are going to suffer. Yet he seems unconcerned as do our other local, state and federal representatives.

That’s why I didn’t vote for him.

Right? The guy hasn’t done anything to lower utility bills all his years in office. Do you really think he’s going to start now?

Blumenthal is one of our US senators. He represents our state in the US Senate. He doesn't have any power over state policy because he's not part of the state government.

How do you people not know this? Did you not pay attention in civics classes?

Blumenthal is a public figure. He can say something. You’re probably ok with the fact he lied about his service in Vietnam. You’re the type of CT liberal who either lives in Florida now, or will move in the next five years
