Healthcare Storytelling and Letter-writing + Potluck

The January potluck of the Hive Mutual Support Network will feature a letter-writing and storytelling workshop, facilitated by the Healthcare Is A Human Right campaign of the Vermont Workers’ Center. As with all Hive activities, this event is open to the public.

The vision of the campaign is that our healthcare system should guarantee all of us access to care we need. Sharing our experiences with the healthcare system is an important way we can change the public narrative about healthcare to one that is human-centered, rather than being framed in terms of costs, profits, and policy that is divorced from our lives.

Thought You Should Know There's Never Going To Be An End Now To The Fight About Corporations Being "Persons"!



Thought you should know now that there's never going to be an end to the fight about Corporations being "persons" while the government maintains that Corporations are "persons" and gives them  much better  tax breaks than "real" people.  So, here the battle is brought out in an entirely creative way, but I'll bet this will go on and on and on, with different objects and animals being taken into Court  for view and asserted as "persons" just like Corporations are "persons" according the the U.S. Supreme Court.


Anyone Know About Pre-Paying Tax?

There's been a bunch of publicity about some states allowing property owners to pre-pay some or all of their 2018 property tax before the close of 2017 as a work-around of the new federal limit on "SALT" deductions.  Anyone know if Vermont allows this?  Guess one could phone the appropriate agency, but of course I thought of this after hours!  Can find nothing on the Vt tax dept website or anywhere else online about this.  Thanks, & HNY.
