Re: “Johnson Says Vermont House to Adjourn Without Minimum Wage, Paid Family Leave Deal

What this story doesnt mention is that Mitzi Johnson gave Ashe until noon to respond to her letter. An hour and a half later, no response.

Tim Ashe postured until the very end, and without a response according to VPR.

So now we have nothing. No minimum wage increase nor paid leave.

Thanks a lot Senator Ashe

Re: “Walters: A Long Day's Journey Into ... Tomorrow

Plus, whatever survives of minimum wage and paid leave are almost certain to be unsatisfactory to those who care about the issues

Incorrect,
the legislative liaison for the Raise The Wage Coalition, said she and other advocacy groups could support both the two-year Senate plan and accelerated House proposal.

Do your research Walters.

Re: “Vermont to Enact Abortion Rights Law, Gov. Scott's Aide Says

I thought that progressives supported protecting the most vulnerable?

Re: “Three Arrested After Climate Protest Halts Vermont House Action

If the Progressive (Reps Cina and zach) want to incite and encourage protesters to further delay an already delayed legislative season at the tune of $250k per week in overtime, Maybe Speaker Johnson should dock their paychecks for an appropriate amount.

Re: “Walters: Scott Speaks Softly, Keeps Stick Under Wraps

Walters once again sets a false narrative of the governor readying his veto pen instead of focusing on Democrats (not progressives) listening to constituents and preventing a supermajority from controlling the agenda.

Well done Blus dog democrats. Sorry Walters, you lost this one.

Re: “Questionable Authority: Zuckerman to Host Cannabis-Themed 'Coffee With Constituents'

An anonymous source has confirmed that Zuckerman will also unveil his own homegrown cannabis strain

Wasnt then Senator Zuckerman the one who introduced a legalization bill, and now will profit from the bills passage? If thats not a conflict of interest, then I dont know what is.
