Quotes of the Week: “We...

"It amazes me to hear politicians say the present Vermont health care system is completely "broken" when by most national measures Vermont's health and healthcare always come out at the very top of the 50 states. Having served nearly thirty years in a solo orthopedic surgical practice involving call every night and 7 day a week coverage for Gifford Medical Center I proudly treated every patient whether they could pay or not - some even at home. My colleagues, nurses and staff at Gifford Medical Center equally serve their fellow Vermonters 24/7 without regard to ability to pay. It denigrates us all when our efforts are so callously categorized for political advantage in pursuit of the Holy Grail of a single payer which may or may not help solve the problems of health care funding."
