Students Support Universal Health Care for Vermont
To the Vermont Legislature,
As current and future health care professionals and concerned citizens from across the nation, we support Vermont's effort to form a single-payer universal health care system for the state. This system should cover all Vermonters, offer free choice of providers, and pay for all necessary care out of public funds. It should be progressively financed, affordable for all, and decoupled from employment. It should retain the private delivery of health care and have a publicly accountable budget process to ensure adequate capacity to meet the health care needs of all Vermonters.
We, the undersigned, support an improved Medicare-for-all! We hope Vermont can serve as a model for the rest of the nation.
