NESRI’s Partner James Haslam Featured in “Vermonters Must Lead the Way”

In an article entitled “Vermonters Must Lead the Way,” which appeared in the Burlington Free Press, NESRI Partner James Haslam of the Vermont Workers’ Center responds to what he sees as a lot of “tinkering around the edges of a health care mess.”  Haslam suggests that Vermonters will need to lead the way by establishing health care not as a market commodity, but as a basic right.”  He continues, “Having health care as a right means that we’ll pool our money together to provide health care for everyone who needs it, like having a fire department, public education system and maintained roads.”  Read the article here.
