Burlington woman speaks truth to power
Ed. Note: the letter below was emailed to every member of the Vermont Senate. It is the conclusion of a lively back-and-forth that began with the author venting her concerns about the Affordable Heating Act, to which she received an email from Sen. Becca White (D-Windsor) criticizing the source of her information (Vermont Daily Chronicle).

If only time could be spent on the answer to the unsustainable teachers’ pension problem, making VT go broke that you failed to fix.
Or the crime problem – not with gun control, but consequences.
Or the housing problem, by lifting regulations so people will build here.
Or making the state a great place to do business – which it is not.
Or figuring out how to stop indoctrination of our children, but how to get our children’s test scores up in math, science, history, etc..
Or figuring out how to run this state without taking money from the federal government which has immorally racked up $23 Trillion in debt which will end up on the backs of our children and grandchildren – immoral.
But no – Democrats just spend time figuring out how to exert their control over us. They want to control what we drive, how we cook, how we heat our homes, whether or not we can protect ourselves against the criminals Sarah George lets run free among us who don’t follow laws and who will have guns no matter what the laws are, and countless other controls.
They get elected by lying, getting indoctrinated 16 year-olds and out of state college students and non citizens to vote. They spend endless amounts of time on climate issues that will do absolutely nothing to change emissions but will poison our water with broken down solar panels and huge unrecyclable batteries, both filled with toxic materials which I’m sure we will all be drinking in a few years. Batteries built by slaves in the Congo who are treated like garbage. You know the black lives that don’t matter to the elitist Democrats and Progressives but do matter to the Republicans.
Then they figure out more ways for Vermont to go broke:
– Universal healthcare that has already been proven cannot work.
We already feed children in schools who are from families who can afford to feed them. And now we have to provide babysitting for everyone who decides to have a child? That is for families to figure out.
Our Republicans are so sensible. Do what you can, Republicans! We admire you working so hard when you are surrounded by elitist control freaks. Good luck.
