Re: “Walters: Scott Vetoes Budget, Teacher Health Care Bills

Two points:

ONE: Vermonters (of all political persuasions) deserve a Governor who can understand / takes the time to understand / has staff who can understand / has staff who cares to understand the Vermont constitution. This is not a small matter.

TWO: While it is within the Governor's powers to veto the budget, it should be because the Governor has found an issue with the budget itself NOT for a political position existing outside the budget (within another bill, etc). The very fact that Gibbs (a former political strategist and failed politician himself) is attempting to create a false narrative in that the Governor was not in office in 2015 illustrates the underlying issue. This all sounds complex but its not: we have a Governor who vetoed the state of Vermont's budget for personal political gain. This is best demonstrated as he originally hailed the budget as being a good budget.

"I feel like I was stolen from."

That's because you were.

Anyone who is a victim of this practice should call the Vermont Attorney General's Consumer Protection Hotline to learn their rights: 802-656-3183
