The single-payer is what the socialists in office have wanted all along. They know the kids won't pay for something they don't want or need and here's why:Ah.... the future is now...
If only this were true for the whole country....
Dems shed a tear of happiness.
Next on the horizon is free housing for all....
If only ...if only...
Those doctors who stay will simply become salaried doctors working for the government. That's the whole point of single payer. All medical personnel will become employees of the state.Of course Vt. approved it.
The program will be fully operational by 2017, and will be funded through Medicare, Medicaid, federal money for the ACA given to Vermont, and a slight increase in taxes. In exchange, there will be no more premiums, deductibles, copays, hospital bills or anything else aimed at making insurance companies a profit. Further, all hospitals and healthcare providers will now be nonprofit.
Yup. I'm sure Doctors, nurses and hospitals will love working for nothing.
Will have to wait and see how this all plays out.
It says "Everyone in, no one out" so it's doubtful that there will be any ID required.I wonder if those living in Vermont will have to show a state provided ID to get these new medical benefits.
