The State of Vermont has moved one step closer to becoming the first state to establish a single-payer healthcare system that guarantees coverage to all residents. On Tuesday, Vermont’s Democratic-led Senate voted 21-8 to support the healthcare bill. The Vermont House has already passed a similar measure. Once the two bills are reconciled, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is expected to sign the bill into law.

The Governor of Vermont was on Rachael Maddow last night. He made an important point that I have tried to convey to Kitzhauber. A single payer system will be a huge incentive for businesses to relocate and expand in the state. If a employer no longer has to provide health care insurance to its employees, they should be flocking to the state. More jobs, More taxpayer revenue, No brainer.
