Vermont Governor to Sign Single-Payer Health Care Bill

Thursday, May 26, 2011

On Thursday, Vermont will become the first state to boast a single-payer health care system. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin will sign the bill that would enlist a panel to figure out how to pay for a new system — and reduce rising health care costs. The goal is to offer a health care solution for the state's 65,000 uninsured.
