Measure 101 protects healthcare coverage for one in four Oregonians, including 400,000 kids. No matter where you live or work, or what your job is, you should be able to see a doctor or nurse and get medication when you’re sick, and it shouldn’t bankrupt you. Measure 101 holds down costs and is an important step to make basic healthcare affordable and accessible to every Oregonian.

All Messages:

  • Measure 101 protects healthcare coverage for one in four Oregonians, including 400,000 kids. No matter where you live or work, or what your job is, you should be able to see a doctor or nurse and get medication when you’re sick, and it shouldn’t bankrupt you. Measure 101 holds down costs and is an important step to make basic healthcare affordable and accessible to every Oregonian.
  • Voting yes on Measure 101 means protecting healthcare for Oregon families – including 400,000 children, as well as seniors and people with disabilities – who otherwise couldn’t afford a doctor’s visit and are often forced to go to the emergency room when they get sick.
  • We need Measure 101 because it protects Medicaid, which provides healthcare for Oregon’s most vulnerable and provides funding to ensure every child in Oregon has a doctor and receives the regular check-ups they need to stay healthy.
  • All Oregonians deserve healthcare. Healthcare should be a right, not a privilege for selected people. Your income shouldn’t determine whether you can visit a doctor or nurse or get medicine when you’re sick. Measure 101 ensures that more hard-working Oregonians have healthcare they can afford.
  • Whether you work in an office or at a construction site, in sales or at a coffee shop, you should be able to see a doctor or nurse when you’re sick and get medications when you need them. And it shouldn’t bankrupt you. Your income shouldn’t determine whether you can get the care you need.
