MONTPELIER — Sen. Kevin Mullin, a Rutland County Republican who went along with Democrats last year and voted in favor of the single-payer health care law, wants to make sure Vermonters are getting their money’s worth out of all five members of the Green Mountain Care Board.
During a Statehouse hearing Thursday, Mullin asked the chairwoman of the board, Anya Rader Wallack, about a public perception that the other members of the board are not doing much work.
“Right now the public perception is you are Peter Shumlin’s point person on health care and nobody else knows what they’re doing,” said Mullin.
Wallack assured him the board members are working hard.
“Each of them have been up to their eyeballs in various issues,” Wallack said.
Mullin suggested notifying the press and the public when the board is out and about and hard at work in order to combat the perception.
Sounds like a good job for a PR firm, no?
