Letter: Raising taxes vs. cutting school costs
School cost cutting — why is this a problem? Forget that the Vermont population went down. Forget that the median income has been reported as going down. Just use the Democrat party answer for everything: raise taxes. After all, we are now one of the highest taxed states in the country. There is no reason why, with just a little more work, we can't become the highest.
Second idea. I was saving this for next time, but as the Democrats think President Trump is so bad, let all true believers send to the tax department their gains in their 401(k) plans and any gains in stock. After all, do they want to gain from having Trump in office?
