In a recent article, The Meriden Record-Journal’s Mary Ellen Godin asked Elizabeth Esty and Andrew Roraback to discuss their views on economic recovery.

For example, Esty believes in the so-called “Buffet rule,” saying “I don’t think we should demonize the financial industry, but I do think millionaires should pay at least the same rate as everybody else.”

Roraback, on the other hand, focused on free enterprise.

“To grow our economy, we need to eliminate barriers to free enterprise, reduce unnecessary regulations to spur private investment and job creation and we need to eliminate tax loopholes that have outlived their usefulness,” he said.
