RUTLAND-Len Britton, candidate for U.S. Senate in Vermont, spoke March 24 at the College of St. Joseph. Britton has been visiting communities around the state with his "common sense" town hall meetings.
Britton spoke about the recent health care bill passed last week, energy policies, jobs, and the federal spending. Britton stated he is opposed to the recent passage of the health care bill. He also went on to suggestion several ways to reduce cost of health care without a mandated purchase via private insurance or the federal government.
Britton said, "It's not too late to restore fiscal sanity and avoid bankrupting our children. It's time for the same brand of common sense that runs through Vermonters to take hold in Washington."
Recent polling found Britton at 33 percent of the vote for the Senate seat. This was considered "good news" by Britton's campaign staffers as the first official poll of the campaign season.
The poll numbers are similar to where Scott Brown, candidate who won the Senate seat in Massachusetts, started at in the polls.
