Governor abandons single-payer health care plan - Yahoo News
Piece by piece, the Obamacare concept is not reaching fruition...
Associated Press writer, Dave Gram recently reported on the Vermont version on the Yahoo News Site:
"Calling it the biggest disappointment of his career, Gov. Peter Shumlin said Wednesday he was abandoning plans to make Vermont the first state in the country with a universal, publicly funded health care system.
Going forward with a project four years in the making would require tax increases too big for the state to absorb, Shumlin said. The measure had been the centerpiece of the Democratic governor's agenda and was watched and rooted for by single-payer health care supporters around the country."
