By Eric L. Davis



Only 193,000 of Vermont’s 443,000 registered voters cast ballots in last week’s General Election. The turnout of 43.5 percent is a record low in the modern era of Vermont politics. This low turnout reflects strong dissatisfaction with the choice of candidates for governor.

Opinion: Milne is backpedaling on his pre-election pledge

Posted on November 12, 2014 |
By Bob Zeliff



I’ve become disturbed in reading about Scott Milne spending time weighing his options concerning the election results. As recently as two weeks ago he indicated that the election should be determined by the popular vote. Now he is backpedaling that, considering other options. His option of requesting a recount is certainly valid, but expensive, as Lt Gov. Phil Scott pointed out recently.

Opinion: Single-payer no Medicare threat

Posted on November 6, 2014 |
By Ellen Oxfeld



Recent letters and news stories have expressed the fear that a Vermont based single-payer system would be a threat to Medicare. This is simply untrue and here is why. The law that set Vermont on the path to single payer specifies on its very first page that Green Mountain Care will cover all Vermonters “regardless of income, assets, health status, or availability of other health coverage.” Also, federal law does not allow for any state to take away Medicare or change Medicare benefits for seniors.

By Angelo S. Lynn



When voters go to the polls next Tuesday, Nov. 4, the role they should assume is that of the boss making new hires.

With that in mind, we offer the following endorsements and comments on the upcoming election:

Opinion: Single-payer health care system begs many questions

Posted on October 17, 2014 |
