#6 Ahhhh, price controls and rationing, a sure formula for success.........

success for the doctors and hospitals in NH, MA & NY.

This is the kind of sophmoric idealism seen in all those communist communes formed by college students that last only until someone doesn't do their fair share of the cleaning & paying.

#7 Often pity the 40% of Vermonters who are good, salt of the earth conservatives and who hate this sort of imported NY idiocy (Vermin) just as much as any of us.

#8 Another example of why economics should be a compulsory subject in every school and another example of why the libs do not want economics taught in every school.

#9 Iblis, I believe that you will find that MA has contributed more than our fair share to the downfall of VT.

Bill, you really expect the academic establishment to teach REAL economics? Students get fed a steady diet of Marx & Keynes et.al.

#10 This is scheduled to launch in 2017. Good scheduling - that'll give all the freeloaders plenty of time to migrate to VT and all the 'producers' to migrate from VT.

This is like the often expressed idea to 'take care of all the homeless'. Sounds good on paper but in practice you can never take care of all the homeless - more and more will just keep coming (and more and more producers will just keep leaving or joining them) that it's simply unsustainable.

It's amazing how many people who are supposed to be 'smart' just don't get this. Perhaps because they stopped thinking and only feel.

#12 I'm sure if you polled 100 Vermonters, 90 would rather be part of Canada anyway...

#13 You are trying to sell me a mountain of worms?

Its the problem with entry level ideologues, they pick up the newspaper to parrot the lines and end up shitting all over their cage.

#14 Keep doing that Vermont. We'll take your best Docs down here in Texas, to join up with a lot of other top flight folks that are fleeing the collectivists in Colorado, California and other would-be socialist gulags.

Stopped?

What makes you believe they could ever think, CF?
