Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

Scott stated that he would not okay legislation this session, and he stated why he would not.
It was not a priority for him. I've found he generally does as he says... He is likely to support a bill, however.

Re: “Walters: Did the Governor Just Wave the White Flag?

"The problem with Scotts position is that the legislatures Democratic majority has a fundamental objection to changing the collective bargaining system on short notice."

I guess you've forgotten that hasty vote where the dominant Dem house voted for (but for an absent legislator) Scott's plan. The D's are looking pretty bad here. Vermont has a history of pragmatism, but this crop seems to have forgotten (or rejected) that and my guess is that both the teachers (unfortunately) and the D&P's (deservedly) will take the rap for what comes from this.

Thanks, Jay and Ben... this issue won't be going away, and it's good to see independent thought coupled with constituent sentiment.

Re: “Walters: ‘Plenty of Time’ for Scott’s New Plan

I wonder if, maybe lying in bed unable to sleep, Ds in this legislature thinks the statewide health insurance contract is a good idea.

Re: “Vermont Senate Votes 21-9 for Marijuana Legalization

I am agnostic on the topic other than approving of pot for medical purposes.
I do find it hard to comprehend why having access to pot is such a big deal..

Are people today not able to live rich, enjoyable lives without it? Are we needing more dependencies? I had a fling with it years ago but got on with finding more useful hobbies that didn't tend to paralyze me.
Not like you're talking about coffee or ice cream.
