Vermont’s forecast for higher taxes and increased government spending, against a backdrop of declining youth population, stagnant wages, and a weak business climate, prompted Cisar to enter the race. “According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 9 of 10 fastest growing job categories in Vermont are low-skilled job categories that do not require a college degree. Meanwhile, the trend across our country shows strong demand for professionals with marketable jobs skills in business, math and science,” says Cisar. “Furthermore, young adult Vermonters are not finding the conditions they need to live here. Vermont has some of the highest taxes, yet we can barely maintain basic highway infrastructure. These are symptoms of poor policies, so we need fresh thinking. The establishment has had time to correct policy, but chose not to because they believe themselves safely entrenched behind special interest money that insulates them from reality.”
When asked about making spending cuts to welfare programs, Cisar said that doing so would be “irresponsible,”
The mismanaged roll-out of Vermont Health Connect and a climate of secrecy surrounding Single Payer healthcare also concern Cisar.
