The Supreme Court's historic decision on the Affordable Care Act could have long-ranging effects on Vermont.

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 Court's decision affect Governor Shumlin's efforts to implement a single payer system in Vermont, the state's 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.
