MIDDLEBURY — As the CEO of Milne Travel, Republican Scott Milne has sent many people to exotic locations throughout the world.

The North Pomfret Republican is now hoping to book a destination of his own, and it’s very exotic: Montpelier, where he hopes to serve as Vermont’s governor. He faces two-term incumbent Gov. Peter Shumlin, a Putney Democrat.

HEALTH CARE: It is the role of the government to ensure that all Vermonters have access to high quality, appropriate, and affordable healthcare and to promote public health. The hard part is figuring out a sustainable and fair way to pay for it.

Every other industrialized democracy in the world treats healthcare as a public good, just as we do our roads and our schools, and provides better care for far less money. Surely America can do this, but Vermont may have to lead the way (again).

HEALTH CARE: Government’s appropriate role is to do for ourselves what we cannot do, or cannot do as well, on our own. In health care, this means ensuring that every Vermonter has access to affordable basic health care through a program with the absolute dependability of a program like Social Security. When first introduced, Social Security was opposed by some people as government intrusion, but now virtually every American accepts and counts on these benefits — because Social Security provides a basic, necessary service.

HEALTH CARE: The government should play a role in healthcare. It seems there is Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor; surely there is a need to complete the gap in coverage for those that do not fit into either of those categories. I believe the Legislature should continue moving forward in an effort to improve the current system and options for those seeking coverage. I often wonder why health insurance can’t be purchased like an auto or life insurance policy.

HEALTH CARE: Medicare and Medicaid have been providing health care to the elderly and needy for decades. In Vermont, Dr. Dynasaur (Medicaid expansion) has provided health care to all children. These programs are cornerstones in our health care system.

Right now we are in a challenged roll out of Vermont Health Connect; our federal health care exchange. These challenges are largely technical. The exchange has delivered considerable financial relief to many Vermonters.
