WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Friday endorsed Oregon Ballot Measure 101. Measure 101 is also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution Central Willamette.
“Health care is under constant attack in Congress. We are proud to see Oregonians taking matters into their own hands,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “This measure would protect the most vulnerable members of society in Oregon: children, the working class, seniors, and people with disabilities. By passing this ballot measure, Oregon will set an example for how states can aggressively fight for the rights of their residents to get access to quality health care regardless of income.”
The funding raised from this measure will be used to expand health care access to those who otherwise couldn't afford a doctor's visit. If passed, Oregon would set an example for how states can fund Medicaid coverage.
Our Revolution supports progressive candidates and ballot measures at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
