WHAT IS YOUR VISION FOR VERMONT'S EARLY CARE AND EDUCATION SYSTEM, AND HOW WOULD YOU PROPOSE FUNDING THIS SYSTEM? 

I don't have a vision, I only have frustration which began during my time at SRS. Foster parents as well as others needed a resource that far too often was not available as demand increased. 100% should support increased funding, as it is an investment in our national future, but the question always draws down to where the money will appear from. Trite comment but this is were our inadequate tax policy for the uber income folks should be coming into play. The money is there is unearned income were considered, but the moxie to seek that seems to be missing.
