Vermont governor signs historic single payer health care law
On May 26, Governor Peter Shumlin (D) signed the legislation passed earlier by the VT House and Senate making Vermont the first state to make health care a right and not a privilege. Hopefully, it will be a model for the rest of the country, a system designed to take care of the people of the state, rather than provide profits for Big Pharma and the health insurance industry. The state will spend the next four years setting up the system.
