Val the first thing you have to do is figure out how much universal health care is going to cost and then figure out whether we can afford it.

Windham County is particularly bad when it comes to good paying jobs.

The Broadband idea is great but we have it here in Brattleboro and any business that requires it would move here except for the high taxes. The idea that we need broadband in rural areas to attract business is a myth. We need lower taxes to get the people with capital to want to invest and make money here.
