    Enough spending

    Ho ho ho. An expert has offered to help Vermont with single-payer health care for $400,000 (who among us makes $400,000 a year?). There is legislation now pending in Congress that would dismantle Obamacare, and Vermont’s Democratic governor wants to raise $2 billion to support the new system. Why should we fund a system that is on the brink of extinction? What don’t we understand about spending money we don’t have, and promising jobs that are talked about, but not forthcoming?

    I think our governor should stick to land deals; he seems to know how to make money there.
