By Angelo Lynn

Phil Scott will veto by Thursday evening (after this paper has gone to press) the Legislature’s recently proposed budget, just as he did the Legislature’s first budget proposal.

As a political sound-byte, that’s about as safe a proposition and campaign pledge any politician could make. But if maintaining a pledge to not raise taxes also means the governor will do nothing to address fundamental problems facing the state, is that the kind of leadership that helps or hurts?
