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.

Please send contributions to “Vermonters for Health Care Freedom” P.O. Box 1515, Montpelier, Vermont 05601.

Earlier this month, a few dozen Vermonters gathered at the University of Vermont for a seminar billed as “Healthcare 101.” But first, they had to wait for a half hour in the fluorescently lit hallways of the George D. Aiken Center for a security guard to open the reserved classroom.

“This is what’s going to happen,” quipped one sardonic attendee, trying the door handle. “You’ll show up for health care and the doors will be locked.”
