By a vote of 5-4, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the
Individual Mandate provision of the Affordable Care Act. So how will the

health care plans in the future and what will be the next step for the
Governor’s plan to expand coverage in the state?
Anya Rader Wallack, chair of the Green Mountain Care Board and Robin Lunge, Director of Health Care Reform provide their reaction to the decision and its affect on Vermont.
