Medicare-for-all advocates to gather in Vergennes

VERGENNES — For years many Vermonters have been advocating that the state move to a single-payer or Medicare for all system of health coverage. On Thursday, June 13, supporters will get a chance to gather at the Kennedy Brothers auditorium, 11 Main St., from 5:30-7:30 p.m. to discuss how to bring about this healthcare change.
Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility and Vermont Healthcare for All are hosting “Medicare For All: What’s Stopping Us?” Their aim is to reignite the fight for universal health care in the United States and Vermont.
At the event, the public will hear directly from Wendell Potter, insurance industry whistleblower and author, who will talk about the health care crisis in the U.S. and the forces organizing to stop the growing movement for Medicare for All. He’ll describe what can be done to take on powerful corporate interests to secure health care security for all. A panel of Vermonters will bring the discussion back home and explore the health care crisis in Vermont.
The event is free and open to the public, who are encouraged to come and share ideas.
Those interested can register at bit.ly/Vergennesevent.
