Go Vermont !!

The nation's major health insurers are into a third year of record profits. Thank goodness for the people in Vermont. They have decided to step out of the health care hierarchy that predictably channels riches to the top.

Instead they are creating another system of health care in their state that takes into account the needs for all their citizens with a single-payer type approach. We hope our home state of Oregon is the second to look seriously into a more equitable and fair system that benefits everyone, not just those at the top.
