Re: “Legislative Leaders Declare Budget Impasse With Governor

Teachers unions have a death grip on VT politics. While VT schools are good - outcomes are only average for the US - our state-wide spending per student is outrageous, one of the highest in the country. When are the dems of VT going to tackle this problem? Our roads are are a mess, social programs are suffering, homeowners are suffering, the business climate is horrible, the working population is shrinking and VT retirees cannot afford to stay in their homes. All this while teachers get raises every year, schools are overstaffed and the student numbers have been declining for years. It should come as no surprise that when act 46 was promulgated, the teachers unions were not even mentioned, or impacted. It's way past time for the State to take a long hard look at public service unions and their excessive political power. It is not good for the State, its budget or the long suffering taxpayers of Vermont.
