The Democrats believe in a single payer plan, called a universal health care system, which is affordable health care for all citizens. Vermont has the only single payer plan in America, and it is a democratic state. The people in the state of Vermont have free health coverage called the Green Mountain System. Many states already have affordable health care coverage for everyone, but not our state. North Carolina voted to cut federal health care coverage for the working poor. North Carolina is certainly one state that needs affordable health care coverage because so many people in the state of North Carolina fall under the line of poverty even though most of them work.
