Holcombe: make VT more affordable by raising taxes, using more 'green' energy - Twitter

Democratic candidate tweeted twice today that to make Vermont a more affordable place to live, Vermont must spend more on paid family leave and childcare, "raise wages," and get off fossil fuels. Could this make Vermont more affordable? 

"Here are 4 concrete ways we can tackle the poverty and economic anxiety that are harming the health of many Vermonters: reduce the cost of health care, pass paid family leave, raise wages, and make sure parents who need child care can afford it.....From Energy Action Network: "Vermonters spent nearly an extra $240 million in 2018 on heating fuel than if we were getting 100% of our heat from renewable sources..over $185 million left the Vermont economy entirely""

    Raise taxes to make Vermont more affordable? And, I’d love to see her math regarding that heating with renewables claim.
