"some of the 1,400 taxpayers Dubie was going to give tax breaks to who work at VY"
Was it really that difficult for you to understand Hawkeye ?
I highly suggest that before you disagree or comment about something please feel free to read and understand what was stated before you make a fool of yourself again.
Nothing difficult for me to understand? Perhaps you should do a little more homework.

There are 650 "taxpayers" workers at Vermont Yankee, so I was wondering where you got the 1400 from? I would be interested in see that data. I searched and could not find those numbers.
Then there is the $100M/yr in economic benefits that would vanish (Dick Heaps-North East Consultants report-look it up) Think of the losses to businesses and suppliers. What about businesses in Brattleboro and surrounding area to start. Oh, sure there will be a skeleton crew keep on like there has been at other closed plants awaiting decommissioning (9) in U.S..
Vermont would lose 38% of it base load electricity and 80% of it's "in-state" power generation capacity (2009 Vermont Electric Utilities, report by Energy Source-look it up)
Vermont Yankee's contributions to Vermont's Clean Energy Fund thru 2012 in the amount of $25M, will be lost. In addition the revenue sharing agreement signed in 2002 which has an estimated value to ratepayers of $938.8M would vanish (VT Dept of Public Service-Look it up.)
As I said from an economical and safety perspective point, the decisions on this plant are very serious. I do believe it's fate should be left to the voters they are the ones that will feel the most impact.
