Re: “In the Vermont House, Freshman Dems Become a Moderating Force

Vermont Democratic leadership is in a tough position. While VT NEA may win this battle, the governor is going to win this PR campaign. In the "private" sector, when an opportunity presents itself, you don't get much time to deliberate. The headline will read: "Agile, nimble, and innovative solutions proposed by the governor meet lethargic, calcified resistance from the legislature and the NEA."

Admittedly, 40,000+ education employees are a big portion of the electorate and they will invariably hold a grudge. But the "average" Vermonter deals with ever increasing premium costs with diminished coverage and we have NO say in the matter. As a result, sympathy from the rest of the electorate is in very short supply.

Until we have true universal healthcare at the federal level moderates are pretty OK "meddling" with collective bargaining.
