Thanks to KBOO, I learned that an Oregon state rep is leading the fight for single-payer health care in Oregon. This is a direct challenge to the federal government. The state rep is Michael Dembrow, and you can follow links from his home page http://www.michaeldembrow.com/rep/?page_id=228 to read about the bill, Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act.
There will be a rally in Salem on the day the Act is heard in the House Health Care Committee, Friday, March 11. I hope to see you there, and I will post again as the day nears.
