Call your elected officials today and ask them to make the repeal of Act 48 a top priority in 2015!

Date: December 30, 2014

WHAT IS ACT 48?
Act 48 was enacted in 2011 by the Vermont Legislature, and included a multi-pronged approach to implementing a single payer healthcare system that began with the creation of the Green Mountain Care Board. The board was responsible for providing recommendations to the legislature on how to fund this system, which would cost over $2 billion.


Governor Shumlin publicly admitted that implementation would be fiscally impossible without placing an overwhelming burden on the backs of small businesses. Repeal of Act 48 would eliminate the need for healthcare funding mechanisms such as a whopping 11% payroll tax on employers or a 9% income tax on Vermonters.
