Re: “Vermont Faces 'Staggering' State Budget Shortfall

For those who think state spending is out of control, here is a fact check. The percent of total personal income spent on all state and local taxes is the same as it was 20 years ago. Facts matter.

In any case, I am interested in exactly what the naysayers think should be cut from state government. It is easy to call for generic cuts. Step up and tell us what state spending is unnecessary.

Re: “Vermont Has 12 Coronavirus Cases, With Signs of Community Spread

Mr. Skiba said, "i love how these jerkoffs dont tell where the cases are"

I guess you missed this.

"One of the four new patients — a woman in her 60s from Bennington County — was being hospitalized at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center. The three others were self-isolating at home. They include a man in his 60s from Orange County; a man in his 30s from Chittenden County; and a woman in her 30s who is also from Chittenden County."

What more do you need to know?
BTW - Nice of you to characterize them as "jerkoffs."

Re: “Vermont Announces Three More Coronavirus Cases

"Tell us how many people have tested positive by CDC standards in Vermont. No one can tell us that number."

Actually, the link in the article takes you to the VT DOH site, which says there are four cases of COVID-19 and hundreds have been tested.

Reporting announcements from public health officials is not "causing panic." It's a public service.

Re: “Middlebury College Closing Campus Amid Coronavirus Fears

Ducking?!
That's rich Jimmy, especially from someone who won't even use his full name.

Re: “Middlebury College Closing Campus Amid Coronavirus Fears

The State recommendation is just that; a recommendation. It is really quite odd that you guys are so bothred by how the College decided to exercise its responsibility. Its a judgment call and one being taken by many administrators in similar situations.
