I support a Vermont where:

  • Everyone has access to quality healthcare, education, affordable housing and social supports paid for with a progressive and fair tax system.

  • We have an economy that creates good jobs while taking bold action to protect the environment and address climate change.

    Regarding VT H-248 and S-53


    The healthcare sector @ 15 -18% of gross state product, is eating the rest of the productive economy alive, don’t you agree?. A re-structuring of the SECTOR is in order. The causes are many, including but not limited to:


    1. Providers with monopoly pricing power, and power to price capriciously in their service areas according to what insurance will pay


    2. A drugs industry that makes higher rates of profits in the US than anywhere else on the planet, a financial sector that scandalously enables it in the worst cases and government that puts up with it. (No negotiation on price to Medicare, for example)


    3. Too many, mostly honest, people doing jobs and investing in the sector (to include the insurance industry) in ways that have little to do with patient outcomes.


    4. Short-sighted deductible and copay structures that discourage timely intervention and consistent case management


    5. Insurance that subsidizes unsustainable volumes and costs of heroic procedures.


    6. Short-sighted investment in medical “plant & equipment” via Certificate of Need in place of regionally focused investment and management, higher utilization rates and lower pricing. (From you personal experience if I recall and understand)


    7. No posted pricing and other information that would at least begin to enable market forces to be effective. BTW, it’s OK to conclude that market forces are not the answer. Every other well developed, reasonably prosperous country on the planet has concluded that markets don’t work for healthcare, just like defense. Just ask any honest economist.
