Vermont is Sounding Better by the Day II
Governor Peter Shumlin signed into law the legislation creating a single payer health care system in the state of Vermont. The state is now looking for an exception to the national health care law in 2014, three years earlier than the law allows for exceptions. I've been looking for possible opportunities in Vermont, including keeping an eye out for teaching opportunities. I am sure one of my grad school classmates will suggest Massachusetts again, but I am not so sure. This health care move will make Vermont even more desirable than it already is, and there is a strong preservation ethic in the state (which is important to me). Like many others with the potential for mobility, but lacking health insurance, I will be watching Vermont's progress closely.
