• Bad form by lawmakers
    April 13,2012

    If you were waiting for confirmation the super-majority ofDemocrats and their allies in Montpelier are drunk with power,we now have it. Recently an invitation went out to all legislatorsto celebrate March 21 as the proposed closing ofVermont Yankee. I’m all for our legislators taking a breakfrom a long day of raising our taxes and fees, but a partyto celebrate closing Yankee at the Statehouse? Really?

    The very place where our representatives conduct the people’sbusiness had VPIRG and the Yankee Decommissioning Alliancehost legislators celebrating with glee the prospect of throwing600 Vermonters out of work. I hope they had the lights off.

    Whatever your opinion of the politics of Vermont Yankee,the hubris displayed by these extreme environmental lobbyistsand our Legislature is breathtaking. I encourage all future businessdemise parties be held outside of the confines of the Golden Dome. It’s deplorable behavior, and should not be condoned.
