Dozens of single-payer health care advocates wearing red shirts stood behind Gov. Peter Shumlin and applauded when he signed Act 48 into law three years ago, putting Vermont on the path to a single-payer health care system.
Today, those red shirts were back, but they weren’t supporting Shumlin.
A number of protesters interrupted official proceedings, shouting chants and holding up banners inside the House chamber. The protestors inside the ceremonial room were a few of many – others were sitting outside, chanting and holding signs.
