Re: “Proposed ‘All-Payer’ Health Care Funding Advances in Vermont

“This [healthcare] is probably the single thing that hurts Vermonters the most economically,” Shumlin said at a Montpelier news conference."

Only if you ignore 'government spending' as being the single thing that hurts Vermonters the most economically. Taxes and interest on public debt, with public debt being a deferred tax hike on ourselves, our children and grandchildren, costs Vermont households 40% of their annual earnings.

Re: “Plan B: A Lefty Lawyer Has His Own Prescription for Single-Payer

A federal court ruled ACA subsidies unconstitutional so until SCOTUS decides the issue, its best to file this plan away under Plan B.

Re: “Seven Takeaways From VPR's Gubernatorial Debate

Also, it's not the climate change isn't an issue for Dan Feliciano. Dan said at the Tunbridge Fair debate that that climate change reporting has been highly politicized by the media which makes climate reporting difficult to trust. Speaking for myself, Vermont is a state a 640,000 people of which manufacturing makes up 11.1% of the states GDP, meaning Vermont's carbon footprint is insignificant in weighted comparison to an climate change drivers emerging outside Vermont from other states, and other countries. Our state's climate is mostly impacted by activities outside Vermont. Our carbon footprint is too small to warrant the governor's 90% 2050 renewable energy goal. That goal bring unnecessary hardship to the majority of working families whose household incomes have either flat-lined or dipped against the backdrop of rising taxes, food costs, energy costs, housing prices, and inflationary spending. Vermonters ought not be forced by policymakers to pay the higher retail prices for renewables at the meter, or by way of tax subsidy through crony Efficiency VT fees to shore up for private renewable energy companies.

Re: “On Eve of Primary, Some GOP Officials Back Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate

Dan Feliciano's gubernatorial campaign is a good example of how we can put workable solutions ahead of political partisanship. Parties are a means to and end, not an end of itself. Write-in Dan Feliciano by 7:00 pm tomorrow, and be sure to color in the dot, or your primary vote won't count!

Re: “Border Nexus: Crossing into Canada Quickly Means Pre-Screening, at a Cost

Pre-screening parallel the process for immigrants applying for green cards in the United States. Are we seriously now requiring American citizens undertake an interview process with DHS much like how immigrants must be interviewed to reside in the U.S., in order to expedite our entry back into our own country? I was married to an immigrant from a former Soviet Republic. In the Soviet Union, the borders looked inward, not only outward. Shame! History will one day view Peter Welch unfavorably for his position on this intrusive anti-liberty policy.

Re: “Traveling Salesman: Shumlin Pitches Himself Coast to Coast

Vermonters would be wise to consider how Shumlin's campaign has been heavily financed by non-Vermont money paid by out of state backers. It's interesting to note that had a right wing Republican governor done the same, people on the political left would consider that a form of operating under a foreign influence. With 50% of his funds sourced from out of state backers, who does Shumlin truly represent? The media is being swamped with articles with headlines like: "Democratic Party is the Party of the Rich." Democrats outspend and out-raise the Republican party by a 2:1 margin, so all the Koch Brothers focus by the left is really nothing extraordinary and exclusive to the political-right when you consider the hundreds of millions being spent by statist democrat financiers like George Soros and Mike Bloomberg. Both major parties have their large private financiers.
