This fall, Portlanders will decide whether to continue their experiment with voter-owned elections. The question becomes more relevant in the wake of Citzens United vs. Federal Elections Commission, a recent Supreme Court ruling that removed bans on corporate campaign spending. This week, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Common Cause Oregon's Janice Thompson about the upcoming referendum on voter-owned elections and what else needs to be done to fix our ailing electoral process.

For better or worse, the Democrats' health care reform legislation has passed. What's THAT mean?

program date: 
Tue, 03/23/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

For better or worse, the Democrats' health care reform legislation has passed.

But is it a good bill? Who benefits? Who loses? What about the public option? Will we ever get a single-payer system? How will this impact life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Abe and Joe look at the new health care status quo.

Counting Heads: What's right and what's wrong with the 2010 census

Its been happening every decade since 1790. As mandated by the constitution, the U.S. Census Bureau determines the population of the nation, the results used to allocate congressional seats, electoral votes and government program funding. As census questionnaires start arriving in mailboxes this month, criticism of the census is heating up from all quarters. Right wing pundits characterize the census as part of the Obama administration's efforts to control citizens' lives. Republicans accuse organization like ACORN of distorting the results for political gain. Communities of color and other underrepresented populations worry that historic undercounting of their numbers will once again leave them without real political representation.
