Universal Healthcare Would Slow VT Cost Growth

Vermont's bid for state-wide universal healthcare could double its healthcare costs by 2020—but that would still be less expensive than maintaining the current system of private insurance plans, says a report prepared by lawmakers.

Blatantly false and misleading title to the article. According to the content it is not universal healthcare that causes the cost to nearly double, but other factors. The report says the universal system will actually save nearly 2 billion dollars compared to the current private system over the same period of time plus provide other positive outcomes the current system can't provide.

The headline is misleading given the point of the article. It helps everyone to not state things in a way that seem inflamatory, when the goal is less cost and better health in the community.
