Re: “Vermont Senate Approves Paid Family Leave Bill

If the object is to help lower income people, this is doing it backward. Instead of taxing on the first $150,000, it would seem more logical to tax on income above $150,000. Just another instance of the more affluent getting a tax break and lower salaries taking another hit.

Re: “Johnson Denounces Vermont House Democrats' Twitter 'Name-Calling'

Neither party has any respectability. Going down into the gutter does not show any moral superiority. Not enthused with either Repubs or Dems at this point. In my opinion Conor Casey is not helping the status of the Democratic Party in the least and may well encourage more people to vote Repub in future.

Re: “Border Patrol Arrests Two Mexican Farm Workers in Vermont

Agree totally with the comments posted. All of this begs the question that if the dairy workers were treated with dignity and paid a fair wage and were able to have decent living accommodations there would be willing local workers and no need for the illegal workers. Also, if local workers were able to exist on wages from farm jobs the money would go back into the local economy. The money paid these illegal workers is sent out of the country and does Vermont no good. Bad situation all around. Losing a lot of respect for our elected representatives who encourage this type of activity and chastise federal agencies for doing what their jobs specify they should do. They promote using these workers and they also promote increasing the benefits for able bodied people who could be working and contributing.
