Support Universal Health Care in Vermont

Skeptics and opponents of Green Mountain Care want to see the money: where are the savings promised by Dr. Hsaio when he urged Vermont to go for single payer? Are the savings in all Vermonters having access to health care for the same amount of money being spent now? Are the savings in a healthier and more productive Vermont? Are the savings in employers being able to invest in their businesses and employees instead of in insurance companies?

After a two-year study, the League of Women Voters strongly supports single payer, publicly funded health insurance for Vermont. Join the league and others in supporting our legislators and the Green Mountain Care Board as the work for our benefit. Don’t let those afraid of needed change make us lose sight of the goal of affordable, universal health care for Vermont.
