I am dumbfounded by Vermonters like David Schoales. Single payer is the holy grail of Socialism. You are asking the very people who screwed up the cost of health care to rectify the problem. They caused the problem! The costs of this plan, and let me say there will be no way to contain it, is printed this month in the NEJournal of Medicine. You are willing to give up your freedom that your ancestors probably fought and died for for Socialism? For health care which will end up costing us the state and in all likelihood will cost more than what you are paying now? Will you get the same quality of health care you have now? Not if there are not any MD’s left living here. I have a small business and I can tell you, I will have to close after 25 years. 96.5% of all employment in this state comes from small business. How many will go next door to NH? Do we need reform? YES! But it should be reform which does not mandate you rob from Peter to pay for Paul. In needs to be consistant with our principles and our values. NOT SOCIALISM!
