Dr. Allan Ramsay, a member of the Green Mountain Care Board, says Vermont is headed toward a primary health care crisis.

The Green Mountain Care Board oversees the state's effort to overhaul Vermont's health care system. There is one physician who serves on that board, and he says Vermont is approaching a crisis in primary care.

Dr. Allan Ramsay explains why and discusses some of the options that the state must weigh to deal with the problem.

Also on the program, Seven Days Political Editor Paul Heintz updates us on the Vermont race for Lieutenant Governor and assesses Senator Bernie Sanders' performance in the Democratic Presidential Debate held on Tuesday night.
