Vermont, VT

Look before you leap - 4/2/2013
VT is a cool state. I was born here and grew up here. And my family is leaving. We simply cannot afford to live here any longer. Welfare is out of control, prices are over the top, and wages - if you can even find job (good luck with that) - are poor. Then there are the schools. DO your research. Our best ranked school does not even begin to compare to schools across the country. Class size is not everything. Healthcare? Not so great, and very expensive. Need a root canal, expect to wait and then spend up to 4k for it, if you can find a dentist who is taking patients. Expect to travel over an hour to get to your job, and pay very high gas prices. Groceries for a family of 4, expect to pay $500 a month, minimum... I love VT, it's beautiful, but I am sick of living on the poverty line, scraping by, with few to no options, and no programs or opportunities for my kids. Costs are still going up, no end in sight. Just do your research, and think twice. VT is not all it's cracked up to be. And the crime rate is also going up very, very fast.
