Interesting article about Vermont Health Care Plan.

A pro-illegal had to make it a race issue:

"When we say health care is a human right, we mean for everybody who lives and works in Vermont regardless of legal status," the Vermont Workers' Center said in a statement."We will not tolerate racial profiling and accept the unjust immigration and foreign policies of the federal government. We can do better than that."

If you read the whole article, it does not mention any race whatsoever...And apparently our immigration laws are not fair. Tough sh * t.

My favorite quote: ""We passed a bill to provide Vermonters with universal health care, not to have Vermonters provide the universe with health care".
