Action: Fight for Vermont’s Healthcare

Please see this ACTION related to a recent budget proposal from Gov. Phil Scott:
Despite promising in his Governing Platform, that he “will protect Vermont’s most vulnerable citizens,” Gov. Scott recently proposed to cut a benefit called “the Vermont Cost Sharing Reduction.” This program subsidizes Vermonters with incomes of 200-400% of the Federal Poverty Level, approximately $24-36,000. Under this proposal, out-of-pocket deductible payments and co-pays can double, triple, or quadruple. 
If you only have the time to make one call, please call YOUR local representative and urge them to strongly condemn this mean-spirited attack on our neighbors and friends. 
And if you can spare another 5 minutes, please call Gov. Scott’s officeLet them know how opposed you are to this proposal.
