Vermont Workers’ Center Statement on Commencement of Green Mountain Care Board

This statement by the Vermont Workers’ Center calls on Governor Shumlin’s administration and the board responsible for the development of Green Mountain Care’s budget and benefits package to continually guide its decisions by the human rights principles outlined in Act 48 — universality, equity (of access and financing), transparency and accountability, participation. The statement notes that the 2010 federal ”Affordable Care Act” must serve only as a transitional step towards Vermont’s universal healthcare system.
