    Wednesday Jan 21 | Manchester Journal

    For Speaker Shap Smith to remove from the House Health Care Committee someone who was clearly asking the tough questions that were needed to protect Vermont voters comes as a slap in the face not only to 18-year veteran Republican Representative Mary Morrissey of Bennington, but to all Vermonters.
