The final analysis and decision concerning specific costs and funding will come when the legislative study is complete in 2017.
Bearing that in mind, the 2014 study for Green Mountain Care, aka “Vermont Single Payer” showed that a combination of a payroll tax (to recapture a portion of the savings reaped by employers) and personal income tax (to capture non-payroll income) would constitute a fair and solid foundation to build an adequate tax package to fund the Dr. Dynasaur 2.0 expansion.

We believe that when the legislature study comes back in 2017, it will show a larger savings for Vermonters in their health care costs vs what is required in new taxes. If this is not the case, and should more taxes be required to fund this expansion than the savings earned by Vermonters, this campaign will discontinue our pursuit for reform. Our goal is to help Vermont’s economy, not add an additional burden.
