Opinion: Dunne could fix health care woes
Article 25 of the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family.” Yet, despite this declaration of fundamental rights, access to quality, affordable healthcare remains a privilege and not a right in the U.S. and right here in Vermont. For many working families in Vermont, healthcare is too expensive, forcing them to make impossible decisions between seeing a doctor or paying college tuition, saving to buy a home or investing in their retirement.
While we’ve made progress in recent years in health reform, we have more work to do. Vermont Health Connect has fallen short, and we need to do more to ensure that every Vermonter has access to health insurance they can feel good about. Every Vermonter deserves quality primary care and peace of mind in an emergency.
That’s why I’m supporting Matt Dunne for Governor. Matt would use his technology and IT background to fix Vermont Health Connect and get us back on track to finally implement a universal single-payer healthcare system. I hope you’ll join me in voting for him on August 9th.
