Will Vermont Be The Next Saskatchewan?

Vermont is moving with incredible speed toward instituting a single payer universal health care system  Details in the link.  If the states are the great “laboratories of democracy” where new ideas and programs are tried out before going national, this could be the beginning of something huge.  You might start eyeballing Green Mountain real estate.  Citizens and businesses will flock to Vermont if single payer becomes the law there.

Forward Single Payer!

This important meeting of the World Health Organization went right over the heads of the US media, but our Canadian friends wrote it up.  The important thing is that the WHO is calling for universal health care everywhere, including the USA.  Single Payer fans should not give up hope.  Colleagues in Vermont and California are very near to enacting a single payer law in their states and asking the Congress to grant a  waiver to permit them to ditch the recently passed “Health Reform Act” and put in a system that will work.  If you want to know more about this movement and steps being taken in Pennsylvania to get us single payer, go to www.healthcare4ALLPA.org.
