You may not have seen it, but the folks at Vermonters for Health
Care Freedom (VHCF) have made a pretty slick 8-minute video that
they apparently sent to all our Vermont legislators. The crux is
that our health care reform is too untested, too complicated, just
beyond our abilities to institute. That's a pretty bizarre
Too untested Really? Did VHCF simply miss the fact that the
entire rest of the developed world has health care systems much
closer to our new system than to what VHCF wants to stick with?
What's radical here is wanting to stick with a plan that has
repeatedly shown itself to be broken. What's radical is sticking
with a health care policy that costs more than health care every
other place on earth.
And where do you suppose that VHCF came up with the money to make
this video? I think that a little piece of my exorbitant
premium played some role.
Call or e-mail your legislators. Tell them to pay attention
to what we really need and ignore the radical ideas of VHCF.
