Shumlin Calls Off Single Payer

Governor Peter Shumlin said on Wednesday that the time isn’t right for single-payer health care, and pushing for it now would likely hurt Vermont’s economy. We talk to VPR's Peter Hirschfeld and Vermont Press Bureau's Neal Goswami about the decision. And we hear from Lawrence Miller, head of the Governor's health care reform efforts.

Also on the show, we talk to Department for Children and Families Commissioner Ken Schatz about the new report released by Casey Family Programs recommending changes at DCF.
