Re: “Montpeculiar: Feeling Spurned, House Republicans Threaten to Boycott

"its an insult to the integrity of the institution and all of our caucus members. " - Don Turner, House Republican Minority Leader

No, Don, it's an insult to the integrity of the institution when all your caucus members blatantly waste everyone's time when they had plenty of warning. It costs huge amounts of tax payer dollars to run the State House, you do not get to drag your feet when you aren't getting your way and waste valuable time and resources.

Please get over yourself.

Re: “Walters: No, Bernie's Not Running (Yet)

Wouldn't it be great if Bernie didn't run for reelection?

Bernie spends almost no time actually doing his job (which is representing Vermonters in Washington).

Bernie believes he is right and everyone else is wrong (even if they are saying the exact same thing he is, its wrong if it didn't come out of his mouth).

Bernie has never actually had a job outside of political office = Bernie is the ultimate political insider with no life experience or training.

Making Bernie the ultimate hypocrite.

Bernie only recognizes the existence of women and minorities if it will serve him politically.

Bernie slanders anyone who tries to hold him accountable.

Bernie slanders anyone with a different perspective or life experience.

Anyone want to run for Congress 2018?

Re: “House Nixes Lottery-Liquor Merger, But Senate Has Other Plans

Point of information, Rep. Franzier, Gov. Scott, the current elected members of the House, and the current elected members of the Senate only just began discussing the proposal.

If Gov. Scott wanted to work with the other elected representatives in state government (the ones who are actually charged with writing bills) he would have gone to them with a proposal. Instead he gave an executive order with little to no information in it.

The House and Senate are not just there to rubber stamp broad policy decisions by the Gov.

Re: “House Nixes Lottery-Liquor Merger, But Senate Has Other Plans

Rep. Franzier, I am sorry to see you taking this opportunity to make a completely political statement (and emotional appeal) instead of discussing the pros and cons of the merger and when the merger how/when the merger should happen.

As I understand it, the Gov., Senate, and House are all in relative agreement that the merger should go forward (whether or not they are Republicans, Democrats, Progressives, or Independents).

What IS up for debate is: 1) what should that merger look like? 2) how do we reasonably save money and keep in place the needed protections 3) how soon can change begin without becoming reckless in the process

It seems that the House is not blockading but simply doing their due diligence, which is what we elect them to do. If the merger went forward and, heaven forbid, the Gov had sole authority, which he used to create a hasty and ill conceived structure, Vermonters (including yourself, I am sure) would be outraged at our legislature for not doing their due diligence in vetting the proposal.

This isn't politics. This is government working as it should.
