Willamette Week sheds light on what 175+ organizations and 16 newspapers around the state also know: opponents of Medicaid access in Oregon have been spreading misinformation to confuse and mislead voters.

Join us in voting YES on Measure 101 by January 23 to protect healthcare access. #YesOn101

Opponents of Measure 101 say the measure is unfair and unnecessary. We look at both claims.

#YesOn101 "If the measure fails, the impact would be huge: a loss of $210 to $320 million to the state's general fund and triple that amount in federal matching funds. Says the measure's fiscal impact statement: "The total reduction to the 2017-19 state budget may be $840 million-$1.3 billion or more."

It also means that some Medicaid patients—probably tens of thousands and perhaps more—would lose coverage. That would impact their health and cost doctors and hospitals money."

Opponents of Measure 101 "would deprive thousands of Oregonians of health insurance, sending them back to emergency rooms or the power of prayer." Willamette Week becomes the 11th newspaper to endorse a YES vote on Measure 101 because "everybody needs health care."

On Jan. 23, Oregonians will decide the outcome of a rare, single-issue ballot. Let’s walk through the key questions surrounding your vote.
