Vote yes on Measure 101
On January 23, Oregon voters will be asked to make a critically important decision — whether to approve or reject Measure 101, which places temporary assessments on health care insurers and hospitals to provide ongoing health care to vulnerable Oregonians. A careful read of the Voter Pamphlet arguments makes it clear what's at stake. A "yes" vote allows Oregon to access federal dollars to guarantee continued funding of the Oregon Health Plan. It ensures that all Oregonians can access basic health care at a price they can afford. A "no" vote rejects the assessments plan, thereby creating a huge state budget deficit and threatening health care for hundreds of thousands of individuals and families.Along with 160 organizations across Oregon, the League of Women Voters of Clackamas County urges you to vote YES on Measure 101.
