Health Care Reform

Health Care Reform - 06/01/2009

Congress returned to Washington this week from the Memorial Day recess with a focus on health care reform.  Before returning to Washington himself, Sen. Bernie Sanders welcomed health care author T.R. Reid for a town meeting in Burlington Monday night.  Sanders, a member of the Senate health committee, has introduced the Senate's only single-payer legislation which would establish a state-administered health care program.  Sanders supports a public option as part of any health care reform package and continues to call for expanded access to health care by expanding the community health center program and training more health care professionals.
