Vermont plots course for single-payer health care system

Quote:
WASHINGTON – While all eyes are on the ObamaCare rollout, an ambitious health care experiment is going forward in Vermont that would create a government-run alternative know as a "single-payer" system -- and it's starting to attract more attention from liberals frustrated with the Affordable Care Act's implementation.

Democrats' faith in ObamaCare has been shaken by the technical failures of the federal and state insurance exchanges as well as, in some cases, premium increases. In Vermont, however, they see a potential first step toward the kind of national government-run health care system some have advocated for years. Filmmaker Michael Moore, in a column last week blasting ObamaCare, said Vermont's plan could "change everything."
And this is the outcome that Obama and his liberal base have been trying to achieve from the start, and frankly, it would be better than Obamacare, but then, that is the reason they screwed it up so bad.

“We have witnessed a shift in thinking about government from one that serves at the pleasure of citizens and to do their bidding, to one that considers its role to manage the populace,”

Re: Vermont plots course for single-payer health care system

I'm torn on this one.

Normally I'd say for Vermont to go for it. I believe in federalism, and would think it would be a great way to let the other 49 states watch and see how it worked. While I don't believe in socialized medicine, I believe in the founders' concept to let each state be a laboratory.

However, in this case, I'm against it. For 2 years the liberals have been saying "it's the law of the land, get over it." So now, before the program even gets started, a bunch of libtards want to change it? What am I missing?

I'm with you. What I can't get over is that POTUS feels he has the authority to make any/all changes to this program, like he is the end all be all of the thing...

That you were sold a load of goods that the seller could not present a representative receipt.

It must be hard to find a holster to match a serape and birkenstocks.
