Ah...did the esteemed governor finally come to the disappointing realization that the great state of Vermont doesn't have its own currency printing press or central banking cartel?
Incrementally, and always under the guise of "fairness", "equality", and "social justice", the US Constitution has been deceitfully interpreted in ways that remove all limitations on central authority...and place them on the people.

They are cutting services and raising taxes to pay for their healthcare system. no they don't pay for the easily or else they wouldn't be cutting services and raising taxes, and pushing private healthcare.
So not only people in Europe have to pay high taxes for their so called "free" healthcare (what a joke that is) they also have to pay for private insurance to cover what the government won't pay for.
you would be wrong.As it turns out, liberty has nothing to do with money in your pocket.
hard to do that when 40% of my check goes to the government in taxes.It has to do with the options you have to determine the direction of your life.
Except it doesn't. the majority of my tax money goes to people on SS, welfare and other social services. it is ok that you don't understand how the system works.I can see why you resent taxation. Most of your taxes (and mine) go to making rich people richer.
every nation on earth offers tax deductions for all sorts of businesses.But that's a flaw in the priorities of our government (which would be solved by a stronger, not weaker, public sphere), not in the principle of public interest. Those nations get a lot more value for their tax money than we do. That's because they believe in robust public spending, rather than insane defense spending (which is a corporate windfall), a public healthcare system based around increasing the power of private healthcare (which is a corporate windfall), and huge corporate subsidies (which are a corporate windfall). If our tax money was being spent on the public like theirs is, you'd probably feel a lot better about spending it.
in fact most of Europe has a corporate tax rate of 25%. the US 35% or so.
no not really. I prefer the money be in my pocket so I can spend it on my family that is why I work. to provide for my family not give it to you.
This country has terrible priorities.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
