Re: “Minter Slams Scott Over Tax She Would Have Raised Higher

Why push such a lie? That's not only dishonest, it's bad politics. Minter should pull that ad and offer an apology to the people who have seen it. Thanks Paul, for putting her firmly on the hot stove and making her keep them there.

Re: “Sanders Endorses Minter, Leahy, Other Vermont Democrats

This is an unusual step for Bernie. He likes being an independent and not playing the endorsement game. His run for president forced him to play - he could no longer stay on the sideline. But even a lone wolf has to run with the pack at times.

Re: “Artwork Mocks Burlington City Officials for ‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’

I remember when a lot of people were angry and vocal about change in Burlington - when Church Street was turned into a pedestrian mall, when City Market opened, when the bike path was built, and when the waterfront as we now know it was transformed. Seems to me that there were a lot of loud voices then too. Fortunately, enough people realized that a vibrant city is always going through changes, sometimes in ways that we're not certain about.

Re: “Minter Gets to Talk Plenty as She Debates an Empty Chair

I wish that different commenters had different avatars. I thought many these comments were all coming from the same person. I also wondered why that person was such a prolific commentator. Did anyone else make this incorrect inference?

Re: “At Campaign Kickoff, Milne Calls Leahy Beholden to Special Interests

I think Scott Milne would have a much stronger message if he was running as an independent rather than a Republican which is the party of big money such as the Koch brothers. He's hanging with the wrong crowd.

Re: “Vermont Democrats Slam Scott's Corporate Cash, Defend Their Own

I usually vote Dem but I loved this article and its spotlight on hypocrisy. Thanks Paul.

Re: “At Health Care Rollout, Scott Leaves Key Questions Unanswered

Vermont Health Connect is an attempt to fix a long-standing problem in this state. People have different opinions about its effectiveness, that's fair. And I think it's totally fair to ask any candidate how they would deal with the problem of Vermonters who went without health care. If you can't propose a better alternative and be clear about it, then you're not offering solutions.
