    While other states are busy crushing unions, denying people healthcare, like Jan Brewer, which resulted in the deaths of two people and cutting taxes on the rich (Can we guess what party or ideology these people embrace), Vermont actually took up Obama's challenge and went with single payer.

    About fucking time.

    Now watch:

    There's going to be a huge national attempt to undermine and discredit this, which will show how a lot of these "tenther" Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites.

    I do too.

    I actually love this country and it's people. I don't want to see them die prematurely and miserable.

    True, but given how big the issue of healthcare is right now, it'll shine a brighter spotlight on their hypocrisy.

    Well here's hoping it doesn't break the state like it did Mass.

    Just wondering. What's thier ranking economically?

    Why?

    This is a state. This falls squarely under states rights.

    fyi; Conservatives fukkin LOVE states rights.
