Health Care Justice Voter - Rights and Democracy VT

Health Care Justice Voter

In the wake of our victories defeating a series of disastrous Republican health care bills it is clear that now, more than ever, we need to protect ourselves, our friends, our family, our co-workers, our neighbors, and our communities from interests trying to further privatize and profit off our broken health care system.


We must win universal, publicly and equitably financed health care as a human right here in Vermont and across the country.


Sign up today to be a Health Care Justice Voter and show Governor Phil Scott and all our elected officials that they must work with us to make access to high-quality health care a human right and public good in this state.

    After enduring another painful year of homelessness from gentrification displacement from 7 years of living in White River Junction, VT; this winter we moved into the only occupancy that accepted us after ceaseless searching for any opportunity. We were rejected by section 8 options for being too poor, even with SSDI.

    I invested all of my time and savings into making the space livable where both a teenage girl had killed herself in and a woman had been recently raped by an ex military sniper who is now in prison for serial aggressively violent crimes. After a few months of delay, the landlord responded to paying an electrician to connect heat to a freezing room that then exposed us to contracting bed bug/mites which spread contamination throughout the house. Despite being hard working and intelligent people, we do not have a functioning dryer to combat the black mold exasperated from a leaking roof or to kill the pest infestation eating us alive nor can afford the hundreds of dollars to launder fabrics . My medical debt from disabilities and limited income has prevented me from obtaining even purchasing bed bug protective covers for bedding that was donated to us to alleviate the burdens of our cyclic conditions of poverty perpetuating illnesses also denied coverage by Medicaid insurances division. I’m an advocate for basic income to benefit every resident regardless of circumstances or performance ability qualifications as a way to stimulate community vitality. Financial security is a basic right everyone is worthy of to receive, gross negligence of this is a deplorable travesty that must be rectified now. To eliminate the abominations of poverty, everyone should receive at least $30,000 net yearly income to be freed from the enslavement of credit interest debt. People will then have the resource means to prevent the traumatic victimization of homelessness and resulting incriminating acts experienced as direct consequence of surviving poverty.

    A temporary home “guest” which our circumstances coerced and pressured us into at this property was effected by countless mite bites, broke agreements to not smoke indoors, needlessly broke an entry window and refused to amend repairs, and choked me against a wall while I was trying to clean, and behaved in unwelcomed ways reported to the police whose current policy protected the man whom was not on the lease, neglected health hygiene, and was physically abusive. Too many people for too long have directly been harmed by these policies which will immediately change as soon as government politicians authentically represent addressing constituents needs.

    The local emergency response for crisis intervention granted by Economic Services sheltered me in a motel that had no bed bug covers on the pillows, bed, or box spring. The room I’m quarantined in while being treated for scabies is dirty, covered with mold, and dead bugs for $90 a nigh. I found dried blood marks on the pillows and the management whom was confrontational about accepting my service dog rights, also refused to wash to the provided blankets with holes in the sheets. The Health Department must expanding budgets to include bed bug/mite cover requirements as a public health code concern.

    I chose to vote for Bernie once, but he has not delivered reparation of The Public Demands to fund community vitality and protecting environmental rights historically neglected by current institutions which must cease systematic oppressions.

    Health care is a right, not a privilege, provided to all by governments without cost. Private corporations must not enrich themselves through the process of providing health care.
