Should the new Legislature embark on an $850 million expansion of Vermont’s taxpayer screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-1-55-39-pmsubsidized Pre-Kindergarten (birth through 5) program?

Yes, our public school system will invest the money effectively and efficiently.

No, property taxpayers can’t afford this.

No, children need to be children first. The state has a terrible education record on the current system , let’s not increase the system .

No, our taxes are high enough. Plus children need to be with their parents longer.

What are they thinking? Oh yeah, they want to program the children from birth to death so everyone will march to the beat of the same drummer. That is not America!

NO NO NO! We cannot afford this!! Seniors & the disabled are being taxed into complete poverty- we exist on “fixed incomes”!!! Stop the tax and spending practices of those in Montpelier!! This would be a huge financial blow for so many!!
