Re: “Compromise or Veto Overrides? Vermont Dems Have New Leverage Over Scott

I want to add my opinion on a "veto-proof" majority in the statehouse. I am against it.
It used to be there had to be compromise (you know where both sides concede some and you end up somewhere in the middle, not the other side agrees to my side) and progress was made but not without checks and balances.
The last time we had a veto proof legislature- Shumlin was governor and he and the legislature spent how many hundreds of million dollars on a faulty, poorly managed exchange system that other states built for just a few million dollars. And the chosen software company went out of business so Vt was left with software that cannot effectively be upgraded or improved, not the first time the state ends up owning software and cannot get it updated to be used as desired.

Re: “Vermont Law School Professor Blows Whistle on Scheme Targeting Mueller

Just to point this out:

The North Dakota Democratic Party appears to be spreading lies as well. I am not commenting one side or the other, I am just pointing out that neither side has a 'I am completely innocent unlike the other party' lock on lies and trying to find dirt.

Re: “Walters: Final Debate Between Scott and Hallquist a Lively, Testy Affair

The governor is the leader of VT but the Legislature has passed many of the programs that put us in the predicament we are in and where we are living way beyond our means. That has been the problem.
Scott tried to change the healthcare for teachers and of course the legislature would not stand up and think of a new path and the healthcare for teachers is a disaster.
Sometimes change needs to begin in the legislature

Re: “Vermont Law School Professor Blows Whistle on Scheme Targeting Mueller

There is no gutter too low for the pathetic GOP to dive into.
It never ceases to amaze me how it is immediately the GOP that is guilty. This is not limited to just the GOP. It is used by any political group to discredit the other, at times when it is not truthful as well.
If only politicians put the public first not their egos.

Wasn't legalization supposed to reduce crime?

Re: “Counselor Julia Rogers Helps Students Navigate Their Gap Year

I agree with the previous post- while travel is nice, perhaps trying a few paying jobs might be a good use of the time to help with the decision what one wants to do.

Re: “Vermont Inmates Moving to CoreCivic Prison in Mississippi

Genesis, I guess they should not have done the crime if they do not like the results.
Sorry but I feel they gave up niceties when they committed their crimes.
