Free Our Economy
In order for Vermonters to thrive economically, heavy tax and regulatory burdens must be lifted. Government waste and excess must be reduced, along with overly burdensome restrictions on new and existing businesses.
Save The Pensions
Vermont's teachers, and state and municipal workers, have been promised pension benefits and health insurance support that has been grossly underfunded. We propose to accurately quantify the actual obligations, and keep those promises.
Among other plans, we propose to improve counseling services for parents of substance abusers, for pregnant women, and for those who wish to wean off Medically Assisted Treatment.
Preserve Local Schools
Act 46 is unpopular for good reason, and should be repealed. Vermont has the second highest cost per student in the nation for education, as a function of median income. Not every school is the same: creative options are being considered, including increased school choice through income-sensitive subsidies, and possibly privatizing some underperforming schools.
