Connecticut is in fiscal straits; is it breaking the state Constitution?

One year after the Malloy administration imposed the largest tax hike in Connecticut history, the state continues to have major financial problems, unlike Wisconsin, where Gov. Scott Walker cut spending and taxes to reduce a $3 billion deficit and is now operating in the black.  Walker won a recall election.  Connecticut does not have the power of recall.  Meanwhile, the state budget teeters in the red, rescued from going deeper because of budget gimmicks.  Now comes word of the worst gimmick of all, borrowing money from capital improvement projects to operate everyday government.  The state has done this for four of the last six months.
