WADR = with all due respect.

Your interpretation is creative but not my message to you.

If something cannot endure laughter.... it cannot endure.
Patience is the art of concealing your impatience.
Slow and steady wins the race.

There was a discussion a while back about the single payer health care plan that Gov. Peter Shumlin of Vermont had been proposing. I lived in Vermont until about a year and a half ago and followed this issue somewhat, although I would not have had a need to join the plan if I had remained there. Nobody was able to pin down Shumlin (or any of the other advocates of the plan) about how much it would cost.

There was an article in today's Boston Globe saying that the plan has been abandoned because it would cost too much (and, consequently, raise income taxes and payroll taxes too much.) Vermont is already one of the most heavily taxed states in the country.

Costs derail Vermont’s single-payer health plan - Business - The Boston Globe

This post is not intended to be a political rant but simply an update on the issue.
