Aetna joins GE in veiled threats to leave Connecticut

This from insurance icon Aetna:

“We were disappointed to learn that Connecticut legislators and the governor appear poised to significantly increase taxes on consumers and businesses, including approximately $700 million in business taxes over two years. We strongly believe this will undermine the competitiveness of Connecticut-based businesses and will lead to an exodus of jobs and business from the state. Connecticut is in danger of damaging its economic future by failing to address its budget obligation in a responsible way. Such as action will result in Aetna looking to reconsider the viability of continuing major operations in the state.”
