The Path to Single Payer Health Care

Rachel Maddow talks about Vermont's "Medicare for all" single payer plan. With a Democratic Governor, and a Democratic controlled Senate and House, Vermont is heading toward a "single payer" plan for healthcare. Essentially Medicare for all!!! WATCH:

Via Crooks and Liars:
Vermont is now moving towards passing a single payer health care plan in their state. President Obama recently stated his support for allowing waivers for states that want to implement single payer health plans before the date of 2017 called for in the Affordable Care Act. And as Rachel Maddow noted here, despite all of their rhetoric about how Republicans supposedly have better ideas for how to reform our health care system, we're not seeing any of these red states step up in the manner Vermont has and offer any alternatives like we're seeing in Vermont.
Let's hope other states follow Vermont's lead.
