Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is sorry his state’s health care rollout didn’t go according to plan. “No one is more disappointed than I am that we fell short of our rollout in the exchange, and I take responsibility for those failures,” he said. “I know that we have work to do to restore Vermonters confidence in our ability to get health care right.”
