I see the Democrats are flying a party banner this year. Let me say I read where the real median income has dropped 2.5 percent over the last three years. Vermont ranks number 8 paying 10.2 percent in taxes. It has also been reported Vermont is the only state to see a decline in population last year. So let me ask or? In what order are they most proud of? Also is their goal to keep Vermont going the same way?
