As House Votes to Repeal “Obamacare,” Vermont Moving Toward Single Payer


Flowers is congressional fellow for the 18,000-member Physicians for a National Health Program; Almberg is the organization’s communications director. Flowers said today: “The Republican repeal of the health law in the House yesterday would initiate a race to the bottom. Their plan to open the sale of insurance across state lines would lead to an administrative nightmare for patients and providers and further lower the quality of health insurance plans. We need a real and simpler solution: improved Medicare for all. Fortunately states like Vermont are picking up where the federal government has failed and are much closer to passing a single payer health plan.”
