Should Health Care be a Human Right? Didn't we already win health care reform? How will this impact your current insurance?
Join me as I speak with representatives of Health Care for All Oregon members Peter Shapiro, Chair, Portland Jobs with Justice Healthcare Committee and Robin Cash, Portland Jobs with Justice Healthcare Committee on Thursday morning Jan 31, 2013 @ 8AM. We will discuss preparations for a massive rally schedule for the State Capitol in Salem on February 4, 2013.
This event is being organized by Health Care for All Oregon, a statewide organization with about 60 member organizations. Portland Jobs with Justice is organizing the Portland area contingent.
Organizers will discuss HR 3510, the Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act, will insure access to quality, patient centered, and affordable care for all Oregonians. It will improve the health of the state's population, and control the cost of health care. It covers all Oregon residents, with no co-payments, deductibles, or premiums. It is funded by a system of dedicated taxes, based on ability to pay, paid directly to The Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Fund.
