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
#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."
Newspapers around Oregon are publicly supporting Measure 101. Make sure to return your ballot by January 23!
Voting YES on Measure 101 protects Medicaid, so seniors, veterans, people with disabilities and families like the Loucks can afford to see a doctor. Pledge to vote YES on 101 by January 23rd: yesforhealthcare.org/pledge

Measure 101 protects healthcare for one million Oregonians who get care through Oregon Health Plan and stabilizes premiums for 210,000 Oregonians who purchase their own insurance. That's why Democrats, Republicans, businesses, AARP Oregon, nurses, doctors, and health advocates all support it.
