Dem lawmaker says Vermont’s single-payer health care plan has already flatlined

In 2011, while the rest of America argued the merits of the president's Affordable Care Act, Vermont jumped the progressive curve, promising to launch the nation's first health single-payer system, in which state government pays providers to care for all residents.

Now, even Democrats say that plan, called Green Mountain Care, isn't ready for its proposed 2017 rollout, and Rep. Jim Condon told Vermont Watchdog it's time for Gov. Peter Shumlin to shelve the ambitious plan immediately.

"The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that's very disappointing. It's becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan," Condon told Vermont Watchdog.

As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state's tax collections from all sources today.

Condon, a Democrat from Colchester, said he thinks a single-payer system in Vermont would "cost more" than a couple of previous estimates. Those estimates pegged the cost for single-payer at anywhere from $1.6 billion to $2.2 billion annually.

"It's a government program [so] I think it's going to cost more than that. Given that, I think it would be in the best interest of Vermonters to redirect our energies away from single-payer health care to trying to improve the system we're in now," Condon added.

Condon was one of three "Blue Dog Democrats" to vote against Act 48, the legislation establishing the transition to a single-payer health care system. According to Act 48, Green Mountain Care cannot have any negative implications for Vermont's economy. But Condon said he's not aware of any other way to pay for it outside of federal funding or raising taxes. And for that reason, Condon said he's urging Gov. Shumlin not to seek a waiver from Obamacare, which the state must obtain from the federal government in order for single-payer to be implemented.

Notice it says: As Vermont Watchdog reported, an independent report by the Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm Avalere Health concluded that the costs of Green Mountain Care would require Vermont to raise tax revenue roughly equal to the state's tax collections from all sources today.

We should all keep in mind and never forget that ObamaCare is just a ruse. It was deliberately designed to confuse and frustrate so everyone would surrender to single-payer and total government control of our health care.
That's what's happening. Republicans should keep drumming that drum until it sinks in and until it hits home. Otherwise, we're going to be taken off-guard and not see it coming.

Well, that's what Harry Reid said in a PBS interview last year...that ObamaCare was just the first step towards single-payer. Didn't you read about it?

You might have to go directly to the source - PBS. You won't find it on your usual talking points networks.

I will continue posting it. Only an idiot would think that the IRS can collect enough money from those who refused to enroll to balance the cost.

We all know the Dems cooked the books on their original numbers and their over trumpeted gains when collected will be way off too.

The bottom line is there was a reason the CBO highlighted the cost-they did not see any of the other provisions greatly reducing the costs

Now I have to agree with the other posters. You are dumber than dirt.
"CBO estimates show that the federal government will bear nearly 93 percent of the costs of the Medicaid expansion over its first nine years (2014-2022). The federal government will pick up 100 percent of the cost of covering people made newly eligible for Medicaid for the first three years (2014-2016) and no less than 90 percent on a permanent basis."

hahahahaha

I said funded.

Funding is where Congress passes a bill that spends money & includes how that spending is funded.

"From the beginning, Republicans decided to forgo dedicated financing for Part D. Except for trivial premiums paid by recipients, the entire cost would fall on taxpayers. Moreover, Republicans refused to raise the Medicare tax or cut spending to cover Part D. Hence, the deficit increased by virtually the entire cost of the program.

Through 2012, Medicare Part D added $318 billion to the national debt (see “General Revenue” on Page 111 in the 2013 Medicare trustees report). That same report projects that Medicare Part D will add $852 billion to the debt over the next 10 years."

Meicare part D - UNFUNDED. ADDS TO THE DEFICIT.

This from the exact same people running in circles screaming " OMG OMG the debt the debt"

Right whiners stupidity at its best.

A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques.

The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use — and later tried to defend — excruciating interrogation methods that yielded little, if any, significant intelligence, according to U.S. officials who have reviewed the document.

Just like Alfred E. Newman, Obama is saying, "What, me worry?"
He wants to be the controll"er" - not the controll"ee".
What "afford"? He's getting a free ride off the people he just buttjacked, wtf.

Not surprising considering he's just another "entitled" bumbler shuffled through the Affirmative Action scam. This is what happens when professors play the same game public school teachers do, "passing" along a belligerent who thinks he's entitled to a degree even though he never did any work "in" the classroom. I've sat next to enough of those inside the classroom to know not to ever have one for a doctor. Thank your lucky stars the shythead didn't "dream" of being an air traffic controller.

Marathon victim sues Glenn Beck for defamation
AP Photo
BOSTON (AP)-- A Saudi Arabian man injured in the Boston Marathon bombings has filed a defamation lawsuit against Glenn Beck, accusing the conservative commentator of calling him "the money man" behind the attack.
Abdulrahman Alharbi, 20, said in the lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Boston that his reputation was "substantially and severely damaged" as a result of Beck's statements on the air linking him to the bombings.
The lawsuit, which also names the broadcast companies connected to Beck's show, seeks a jury trial and unspecified damages.
In the days after the explosions that killed three people and injured more than 260, Beck "repeatedly and falsely identified Mr. Alharbi as an active participant in the crimes that were committed on April 15, 2013, repeatedly questioned the motives of federal officials in failing to pursue or detain Alharbi and repeatedly and falsely accused Mr. Alharbi of being a criminal who had funded the attacks at the Boston Marathon," the lawsuit alleges...."
You obviously missed my post where I pointed out how idiotic Beck was in his reporting of Abdulrahman Alharbi and stated, much to the ire of our conservative crowd, that I hope Mr. Alharbi wins millions and Beck ends up in the poor house. IMO, if we are to end these malicious attacks, the only way we are going to do it is by hitting these people in their pocketbooks. I wish Mr. Alharbi luck...as well as Shirley Sherrod.

because the techniques they were using were not designed to get credible intel. they were designed to get people to say what you wanted them to say.
