      Vermont's single payer to make it a success.  It sounds to me like they need seed money.   I like that the tax they would collect is protected to be spent only on heathcare and not get moved into the general budget.  That speaks volumes.

      If Obama can raise one billion dollars for his campaign, it seems to me this nation of democrats could come up with some serious cash to get Vermont's system running healthy as an example to the rest of the nation.   It would be a good investment for anyone who wants this nation to follow their example.

      The VOX article says that admin costs for doctors and hospitals would still be higher because not all of their patients are from Vermont.  Seems Vermont could, as a state, settle bills with other out of state insurance companies.  Run those bills through one office at the state level instead of hundreds of offices at the doctor/hospital level.

      1. What does it mean? 2. And then what?
