Vermont House passes Single-Payer Legislation!
On March 24, the Vermont House voted 89-47 to pass their single-payer bill, “Road map to a universal and unified health system.” The bill now moves to the Senate for public hearings and a vote due in mid-April. Excellent updates on progress in Vermont posted here.
“Who among us knows exactly what the path to single-payer will be in the US? It might lead right through Minnesota or California or Maine or Vermont well before it rolls in waves of insistent justice through Washington, DC. None of us knows which piece of activist energy or which state bill will be the tipping point. All the points of pressure matter and matter mightily.”
