Re: “Housing Advocates Say State Back-Rent Payments Could Halve Eviction Rate

I got out of the business of providing residential rentals as have most of my entrepreneurial peers. Over time I realized that it was not the people who happened to have an unfortunate problem that didnt pay the rent. I knew when that was the case and worked with them. It was the increasing numbers of people who are gaming the system and the system that enables each generation to get better at it that forced me out. Now most of the rental housing that is built is built with tax dollars.

Re: “Vermont Democrats Counter Scott With Mandatory Paid Leave Plan

Thats why Vermonters elected Scott, to keep things like this from happening.

Re: “Maple Syrup and Tax Breaks: Can Scott Attract New Vermonters?

45 years of owning and running small businesses in Vt hasnt broken me. 80 hour work weeks are what Vermonters used to be made of. These businesses have employed hundreds, thousands of good paying jobs. These jobs and the small business entrepreneurs are the middle income earners of Vermont. They are the ones who are leaving. Starting and continuing to operate a small business in Vermont has become almost impossible. The constant increase of rules and regulations, both by elected officials and government beaurocrats takes away the incentive to create. Decade after decade the middle class becomes smaller because they cant afford to live here. The number of lower income residents and higher income second home owners become larger. Why??

Re: “The Sound of Silence: Bernie Sanders Spurns Seven Days for 1,000 Days

Bernie has burned middle class Vermonters so badly that we dont want to hear any thing about him in any publication. Be glad he ignores you. Try to ignore him.
