Oregon Measure 23
Oregon's single-payer-health-care referendum: Sanity
in the face of returning double-digit annual cost increases (after an HMO-induced respite), or a tax-and-spend, job-destroying nightmare
which even the public-employee unions (not well-known supporters of any for-profit system) oppose
If you can spare a moment from histrionic rhetorical arguments about far away places you have no real experience with to involve yourself with practical ways to stop the trend toward a fundamentalist totalitarian corporate dictatorship in this country and step by small pragmatic step reclaim democracy, a good first step is to support Oregon's Measure 23,
to promote comprehensive universal health care using a single payer public finance mechanism, or support healthcare for everyone
in your state.
