“I was once a California uninsured preparing to pay cash for the birth of our son. $1600 to the Chinese born doctor and $1000 to Children’s hospital.”
Ah, yes, Tom. Now that you are a member of the Party of Hate, you need to throw a bit of bigotry into your letter.
Salmon’s letter – on official STATE OF VERMONT, OFFICE OF THE STATE AUDITOR stationery – is completely inappropriate and he should be impeached for gross misconduct immediately.
If he is the “stand up” person he says he is, he will realize how big a mistake he has made, and resign.
It’s very sad that his recent actions have become such a stark contrast to the good the Salmon family has done for Vermont.
