Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses to Return to Work Saturday

The hospital can afford to do it, Gi, because they're gouging the rest of us. To heck with increasing about cutting them so that the government doesn't need to mandate heath coverage to ensure that it can fund essential programs? A lot of non-healthcare folks have to work overtime just to afford health care, and they're going to have to work more overtime if costs go up.

Re: “Nurses Picket as Strike Starts at UVM Medical Center

The US average monthly health insurance premium is 321 dollars for an individual. That's about 3850 per year. For most individuals, this is far more than what they actually spend on healthcare. If this potential raise is going to increase the cost of my healthcare even more, just hire their replacements full time and let the striking nurses find other work. Healthcare costs are already beyond ridiculous.

Re: “Contract Talks Yield No Breakthrough for Nurses, UVM Medical Center

I guess health care costs aren't ridiculous enough already...

I'm all for paying these people more once the government does something to get healthcare costs under control, but it's already ridiculous. Jacking up the cost of these employees with a 24% raise is just going to ensure even less people can actually afford their services. Why don't we focus on prescription drug costs first, and then work on wages?

This isn't fake news, it just isn't news at all.

Re: “Two Highgate Suspects On the Run After Body Found in Woods

How the hell did nobody notice that this guy was missing for 6 months? In today's society, that's unfathomable.

Re: “Many Police Agencies in Vermont Stop Using License Plate Readers

Expensive bells and whistles that don't actually accomplish anything? Seems like the exact sort of thing that Vermont typically wastes taxpayer money on. I'm surprised we're not seeing this program expanded.

Re: “Sean Hannity's Real Estate Empire Includes Okemo Condo

Of course Hannity spent premium dollars on a premium slopeside property...climate change is a hoax after all. I bet he drove up there in his Hummer to check it out.
