68. Dean cut payments to doctors who offered to accept medicaid
Frequently increased the amount of money that recipients had to pay, refused to increase income taxes on the wealthy in order to avoid such cuts and increases to patients. At the same time he kept blocking all attempts to control costs, particularly for drugs, by requiring the pharmaceutical companies to give the deep discounts on drugs that other states negotiate.

Two Vermnt Senators had to actually start and become officers of a Vermont oraganization set up to garner public opinion to force such legislation because of the republican lock on the Vermont House, and Deans support of that part of the legislature on such issues.
