This past week, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin signed a bill creating a single-payer healthcare plan for the Green Mountain State – making it the first state to do so, according to a report by CBS News.
At the signing ceremony, Shumlin announced: “This law recognizes an economic and fiscal imperative – that we must control the growth in health care costs that are putting families at economic risk and making it harder for small employers to do business. We have a moral imperative to fix this problem, with 47,000 Vermonters uninsured and another 150,000 underinsured and worried about how to afford keeping their families healthy.”
Vermont lawmakers passed the legislation — which guarantees every Vermont resident the right to join Green Mountain Care — in March by a vote of 92-49. The law is scheduled to ramp-up in 2014.

THE COMMENT FINE PRINT - IN DEFENSE AGAINST MENTAL MIDGETS:Why do you not respond to my comment? Why is my comment gone? Why are you mean? Why do I hate you for erasing my comment? Why do you hate me for my comment? Why is cussing not allowed (Sometimes you do it - sorta!), when it helps me express my feelings? Why are you a #$&%@#? Why is it wrong to wish you dead? Why do you love Russia? Why are you stupid? Why are you unpatriotic? Why is, why is, why is and why is? My GOD man, Why are you worse than a communist?
The above manifestations of a horde of mental midgets is why I only respond to comments that have signed up to be a user of the blog! (Top right of website is link!) Anyone can comment and anyone can be erased after they comment, but only someone who takes the time to sign up gets a second look from me at the comment. Sorry: I have to draw the line somewhere and when you get thousands of spam, hate and death threat comments a day, then all you do is look at spam, hate and death threats, then I never get anything else done. If you comment after signing in, then I will get a message that someone has tried to post a real comment?
Thanks for understanding and even if you don't understand, thanks anyway...
Another day in the life of Windows to Russia...
