Oregon Center for Public Policy: Answers to your questions about Ballot Measure 101 and the health care of Oregonians

Yes for Healthcare – Find answers and learn who support Yes on Measure 101. “Voting yes on Measure 101 means protecting healthcare for Oregon families – including 400,000 children, as well as seniors and people with disabilities – who otherwise couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit and are often forced to go to the emergency room when they get sick.”

ADVOCATE!
We need people to turn-out the vote in support of this measure. The opponents are counting on low voter turn-out in their attempt to undermine access to healthcare for Oregon families. All Oregon kids will have healthcare with a Yes on 101 vote. We need to defend the progress that has been made in Oregon as healthcare access comes under threat nationwide.
