Re: “Shumlin Administration Ratchets Up Pressure on State Employees

Simply a shell game. Baby dies - add 14 positions in Human Services, then cut that and more to balance budget; Prisoner escapes - make jail sentences longer, but cut jail spaces to reduce budget; Lake Champlain needs cleaning - legislate a volunteer program; drug problem - open 5 more rehab centers, but then cut human services to balance budget; more kids in state custody b/c of abuse and neglect - cut budget on attorneys and judges.... I suppose the next underfunded agency which has a crisis, we will spend money for a 'blue ribbon panel study' to say - you cut the budget too much, so then put the money back and hope revenues have risen by then. Shumlin is just trying to dupe the public and treats Vermonters as too stupid to catch on. Need another example? How about decrying medicare cost shifting and adding more taxes to the businesses of Vermont while promising to pay it back to taxpayers ?? If its coming back - why pipe the money through the government? Or how about cutting energy efficiency vermont and loose federal matching funds - shift cost of energy efficient to the utility and let the utility raise rates on the taxpayer: Hey, it's not a tax increase.... Yeah - we are that stupid.
