FILE - In this Sept. 18, 2013, file photo, Gov. Peter Shumlin addresses a forum for small business owners looking at the launch of the Vermont Health Connect Health Insurance Exchange in Montpelier, Vt. While much of the nation works to implement the health insurance exchanges under the federal health overhaul law, Vermont does that and also keeps its eye on a bigger goal, one that more fully embraces government-funded health care. Shumlin is continuing to vow to make Vermont a place where "health care is a right and not a privilege." (AP Photo/Toby Talbot) less
