Saw this one coming! Who's next, Eveready? Over 50% of their product is already produced out of country! Packaging can be done cheaper elsewhere and their molding operations would work better in a warmer climate! Bye Bye!!

<quoted text> In Vermont a car is a necessity not a luxery. Their public transportation system leaves alot to be desired. Not all rural areas have pick-up zones and for some it's not easy getting to the nearest bus-stop. Most have to travel out of town for medical care since Bennington is losing doctors faster than kids lose their baby teeth. The government wanted gas companies to stop guaging us so they in turn could add their 3 cents.
The point I was trying to make was "with each tax increase" "new program" or "great need" the line out of "Washington" "monpelier" or any goverment want they SAY it's only a tax on the rich for a great need. They will also say will be so well run by goverment will be free (ie Medicare). But % of tax's we pay plus fee's and co-pay keep going up leaving the non rich with less money to try and better our own life's more dependent on goverment
