Re: “Vermont School Districts Must Save $13 Million Under Legislature’s Compromise

You are right Jay-Man. The CEOs of most hospitals earns more than the governor of Vermont? How is that justified?

Re: “Vermont School Districts Must Save $13 Million Under Legislature’s Compromise

Let's get this straight: School boards must make spending cuts but the state doesn't have to do anything to cut the waste from its budget? Once again the tyranny of government in action.

Re: “Weinberger, Scott Announce Coalition to Fight Climate Change

C'mon Timothy how dare you speak the truth that goes directly against the liberal agenda? I am all for reducing the use of fossil fuels but not by covering the landscape with wind turbines and those beautiful solar panels that will quickly fill of landfills starting very soon?

Re: “Walters: Congressional Shooter Campaigned for Bernie Sanders

A person who does that is not driven by ideology but is a deranged person. It's too bad he couldn't have been treated for his mental illness.

Re: “Vermont Delegation Disturbed, Troubled by Comey Testimony

Obama had his administration lie about the truth regarding Benghazi. Our delegation's response? Crickets. Hillary let people with no security clearance access to her server which contained classified emails, lied under oath that there was never any classified emails sent or received on her private server, and intended to destroy government information to hide the truth. Our delegation's response? Crickets again. But Trump fired Comey because he couldn't trust him. Our delegation's response? Very troubling.

Re: “Vermont to Join Climate Change Coalition

What a dog and pony show being put on by these governors. First Trump never said he doesn't support environmental issues. Second he said the reason was because the accord is a farce where China and India, two of the biggest polluters will not be required to follow the agreement and the US will suffer economically for it. We don't need to sign a treaty to do what is best for the environment.

Re: “Budget Standoff Escalates Between Scott and Vermont Legislature

The state budget is extremely bloated and a perfect place to look for saving money. We have two agencies that have 3 deputy commissioners each making over 100K each. Why do we need any deputy commissioners making over 2K among them? Does the agency of wildlife need over 20 scientists? Do we need a state department of education and a state school board? This is a small state with a low population. Can we get by with less government? Teachers have a tough job, one I wouldn't want and are always an easy target for the state financial woes. It's time for the governor and the legislators to start working hard to solve the financial problems.
