  • Press Conference on Striking Workers' Tax from Health Bill

    Hosting a press conference with labor leaders and organized workers, Sen. Bernie Sanders called for the elimination of a provision in the Senate health reform proposal which would tax some health insurance plans. “Imposing an excise tax on health insurance plans would be a disaster for millions of middle class Americans,” Sanders said. Sanders introduced an amendment to strike the provision from the Senate-introduced Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The so-called “Cadillac” health insurance plans in fact can have premiums around $8,500 for an individual plan and $23,000 for a family plan.
  • Health Center Event at the White House

    Senator Sanders has been a leader in Congress in securing support for these clinics which provide affordable access to health care in under-served areas. Sanders went to the White House for the announcement of stimulus funding for health centers across the country by President Obama. The Community Health Center of Burlington was awarded $10.9 million for construction of a new building that will double the center’s size and allow it to serve more patients throughout Chittenden County.
