• What price for welfare state?
    January 13,2013

    I read with interest the article in the Jan. 6 issue of the Rutland Herald and Times Argus written by Llewellyn King. He describes what he calls, a social welfare state — free education (through university), universal health care (with outcomes superior to that of the U.S.), outstanding working conditions for women and men and more.

    Denmark is also the leader in clean wind energy use. The author then ends, saying, “For all this, Danes pay a price,” high taxes. I am not surprised, but exactly how high are these taxes? Is it one tax or many as we have — federal, state, local, sales, etc.?
