  1. Regarding the VT Digger article : “In housing program, motels named their price. What did Vermont’s most vulnerable get in exchange?” This is the huge reason that our government is not even close to adequate when it comes to housing the homeless. The job of our government is not to help house people. There is no incentive for the government employees to work efficiently and get things done quickly. Govt employees get paid regardless if they do a bad job or waste money. Hotel owners overcharged our government because they could. I wonder if the government employees who approved the $8000 per month rental payment even had a clue what going rates were for rentals? Another boondoggle?

  2. Well, that’s VT Digger for you – Always grabbing the low-hanging fruit while real problems like the Unaffordable Heat Act are relegated to the real journalists.
