As health marketplaces open, Vt. eyes bigger goal
In this Oct. 1, 2013 photo, workers take calls for Vermont's health care exchange in Burlington, Vt. While much of the nation works to implement the health insurance exchanges under the federal health overhaul law, Vermont does that and also keeps its eye on a bigger goal, one that more fully embraces government-funded health care. The state has a planned 2017 launch of the nationís first universal health care system, a sort of modified Medicare-for-all that has long been a dream for many liberals. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)
