Re: “Officials: Vermont Would Take $200 Million Hit Under New Health Plan

I am 65, disabled and receive social security disability. I just did mi Medicaid interview on the phone and was told I am over the income amount limit by 228.00! I get 1104 per month from ssdi for income and that is it! I also suffer from neuropathy and it is very hard to get around. They also do not count in how much it costs to get to and from appointments. Most of that goes for rent, food and other everyday expenses. Now I have to do what is called a spend down so I have to make a choice of either cutting out food or rent and go homeless or what do I do? Meanwhile in Montpelier the rich house and senate leaders are getting richer and fatter while us little people don't seem to count! The state needs to update it's century old rules and regulations, step back and take a real look at the problems us Vermonters are having!!

Re: “Vermont Leaders Fill $12.5 Million Budget Gap Without Dissent

I would like to make a comment about Medicaid. I am 65, on medicare and on Medicaid. The problem is this: I just did my review over the phone and they said i am 228.00 over the limit. i am getting the same amount this year as last year so why the problem? They said I am on a spend down so i have to pay that amount in doctor bills before i will be re instated for Medicaid for 6 months! I don't have that kind of money and what do i have to do, go homeless by not being able to pay rent and pay the doctor bills? Sure medicaire pays for most doctors but some like therapists only accept Medicaid! I think this state needs to update it's guidelines so it is similar to medicaire that way the elderly/sick won't be prejudiced against being seen by a provider and this won't be hanging over their head worrying whether to go without food, pay bills or go homeless. As is, the rents in Burlington are so ridiculously high that it's not funny and the state could care less about peoples problems!

Re: “Burlington Residents React to Latest City Hall Park Redesign

Why re design the park? The money could be better use1d somewhere else such as making more places for the homeless people! Apparently the city is does not want to deal with the problem and thinks of "more important" things to do instead of thinking about the people that are living here first! Leave it up to those materialistic asses that run city hall...

Re: “Burlington to Host Nationwide Mayoral Conference

Yes, the mayor is a worthless piece of crap who has not kept up his vow to help the homeless and the other problems. Also what has he done about making real affordable housing for the homeless and struggling people besides nothing? Instead he seems more interested in Burlington business such as the mall farce. That mall is pretty much dead now so what makes him think building a new one will solve the problem? It will only drive up prices to a way over priced city.
This mayor has to go!!!

Re: “Details Trickle Out on Finalists in the Bidding for Burlington Telecom

Telecom should stay local as the so called giants ( Comcast, Direct tv, Warner) are all for profit and give crappy service.. They don't care about the quality of service they provide, they are just there to see how much money they can get!!
