Health Care is a Human Right, change the wording of Oregon Constitution.
Important: Do not talk about single payer healthcare. Senator Greenlick and HCAO have come up with a well thought out plan.
Phase One 2018- We establish that healthcare is a human right in our state constitution. Once that is accomplished, we will have to figure out a mechanism to deliver healthcare to all Oregonians.
Again, do not talk about the method of delivery, just that healthcare is a fundamental, human right.

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Chicago, March 25, 1966
Measure 101 addresses health care funding through authorizing “provider fees”. It is a system that is effective in 49 other states, and a system which providers themselves support. The passage of Measure 101 will ensure 400,000 Oregon kids can still see a doctor, will maintain services for seniors, and will help stabilize premiums for all Oregonians.
But it won’t pass without your help as an active Multnomah County Democrat.
This really DOES depend on you.
