Phil Scott Fails to Offer Specifics, Falls Back on National GOP Funders’ Talking Points
October 18, 2016
Burlington, VT Tonight, Phil Scott yet again failed to offer any specific plans, instead falling back on the national Republican talking points that have defined his campaign.
“Phil Scott’s campaign has been full of dodged questions and national Republican talking points,” said Christina Amestoy, VDP spokesperson. “Tonight was nothing new. It’s clear that Phil is taking cues from the national Republican funders who are backing his campaign to the tune of $1.8 million.”
“Scott’s out-of-touch policies leave behind middle-class Vermonters while offering tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy. His broad based budget cuts to pay for these tax breaks will threaten family programs, public safety, and opiate addiction service.”
‘Vermonters need a governor who puts Vermont’s interests first, not the policies pushed by national Republican backers.”
Paid for by the Vermont Democratic Party and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
