Vermonters for Health Care Freedom is a 501 (c) (4) organization of individuals and businesses who are deeply concerned about health care reforms being implemented by Governor Shumlin, and seek patient-centered reforms that protect the traditional doctor-patient relationship.

Mission

Vermonters for Health Care Freedom is a 501 (c) (4) organization of individuals and businesses who are deeply concerned about health care reforms being implemented by the Shumlin Administration. The Vermont Legislature has enacted legislation that eliminates Vermont’s free market system and replaces it with a government-monopoly single payer system that nearly all Vermont residents will be required to join. This so called “Green Mountain Care” will be funded by new payroll tax and/or additional income taxes or other newly-created taxes. In plain English -- it will result in the largest tax increase in Vermont history.

Vermonters for Health Care Freedom will educate the public and legislators about the damaging effects this policy will have on Vermont’s economy and on our current, high quality health care system that provides coverage to more than 92% of all Vermonters. We will also encourage the public and policy makers to consider patient-centered, market based reforms to meet cost and access goals.

Contributions to Vermonters for Health Care Freedom are unlimited. Please consult your tax adviser with respect to deductibility questions for your individual situation.

Donors to Vermonters for Health Care Freedom will be kept confidential.

"Any person who believes that they have the fundamental right to determine what is best for them in their life...what healthcare to receive, what medications to take, what immunizations to have, what food to eat, what behavior and thoughts to express.... should reject this attempt by the State of Vermont to regulate their bodies and minds. Vermont's "Healthcare Reform" is legislation about power and control based on the unconstitutional and immoral assumption that the state knows what is best for the people that it rules."
