Re: “Analysis: Caving on Single-Payer, Shumlin Forfeits Remaining Credibility

The State of VT has a resource problem, that manifests itself as healthcare, education , infrastructure. There aren't enough people and high paying jobs to support every initiative. The State would need to get to 1.2 - 1.5 mm people before you could make universal healthcare work. 5 % of Vermonters consume 45 % of the healthcare spending. We are the second healthiest state in the Country. Levying more taxes on businesses and residents is not the way to go. We live in a global economy. The math simply does not work. We need to encourage more Business in this state as well as curb the costs of education.
The "Graying" of VT is the biggest issue this state will face. We need more opportunity for young people to stay in this state.
I enjoy living in VT. I am not so sure I would like living in VT if it cost me another 5-6k a year.

These problems are very easy to solve if you are willing to do the math!!
