All eyes turned to Vermont today as Governor Peter Schumlin signed into law a bill creating a board to oversee the planning and development of a state-sponsored insurance plan, Green Mountain Care. With the stroke of a pen, Vermont became the first state to move significantly toward a single-payer insurance system. One hurdle standing in Vermont's way is the need to secure a waiver from PPACA, which won't be available until 2017 under current law. Although there appears to be support for moving that deadline up to 2014, it remains to be seen how strong that support really is.
