Magazine puts Sanders, Shumlin on honor roll

Posted
MONTPELIER (AP) - Two Vermont elected officials have been named to The Nation magazine's 2012 progressive honor roll.

Sen. Bernie Sanders was chosen by the left-leaning weekly as its most-valuable progressive. The magazine cites Sanders for his defense of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid against cut being talked about in Washington.

Gov. Peter Shumlin gets The Nation's nod as the most valuable governor in the country. It cites Shumlin's work on budget issues, and his support for a single-payer health care system in Vermont.
