    I wish there was a way to have these not in my back yard states pay more for affordable energy that is produced in other states that are willing to do what needs to be done. They are like leeches on America, perfectly willing to get reduced prices on fuel from other states like North Dakota but not willing to do their share for our country. Hey Vermont, Kiss My Ass!
    Is America as leach on the world for importing oil and Gas,

    and if not why would Vermont be one for doing the same

    In those terms, yes. However, when legislation is passed that prevent's job creation, it means fewer local jobs.

    Saying that this legislation that "threatens job creation", is banning a practice that threatens peoples health and livelihood i kinda think its worth it to ban this practice...

    First, fracking isn't harmful. Second, banning fracking destroys domestic petroleum production which is primarily smaller independent producers who provide high volume high paying jobs. That in turns funds state coffers.

    Oh most certainly, but Vermont wasn't really a petroleum production area at any rate and thus the argument there is mostly academic.

    Neither was New York, until the Marcellus Shale was discovered.
