Opinion: Insurance carrier's rate increase hurts Vermonters

Posted on August 22, 2014 |
By Millard Cox



I was struck by the irony of two juxtaposed news stories this week. One story described the impact of our state’s revenue shortfall and the resulting $31 million in budget cuts that will further distress needy Vermonters and impair the capacity of state service agencies to meet the needs of their clients. The other article concerned the request by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont for a 9.8 percent rate increase to its subscribers.

to bring the gas here from somewhere

Community Forum: Politicians face single-payer test

Posted on August 21, 2014 |
By Paul Ralston



This week’s writer is Rep. Paul Ralston, a Democrat representing Middlebury in the Vermont House; he is not running for re-election. He is also chief executive officer of Vermont Coffee Co., a Middlebury business.

“Single payer” is the buzzword of Vermont’s 2014 election. A candidate’s pledge to support single payer is the litmus test for some. Big money — mostly from out-of-state unions — is flowing into Vermont to support candidates who pass the single-payer test.
