Union County Democrats Believe Health Care is a Human Right

Health Care as a Human Right is one of the platform planks of the Union County Democrats and key to the Union County Health Care Resolution signed by 260 persons.

Thanks to the 23 of these supporters that attended the 1-17-18 Union County Board of Commissioners meeting. Eleven (11) supporters shared personal stories about: working only to access health insurance; high monthly cost of personal policies exceeding $1,000 for one person plus additional cost of health care; responsibility of government to provide healthcare as a "public good"; physician and nurse telling how patients post-poned accessing health care because of the cost; tragic physical outcomes for people with no access to health care; financial impacts on young people who have no access to affordable medical care; emergency rooms used for health care by people with no other resources; 60% of US bankruptcy due to cost of health care (and most had insurance) and more. 

Health care resolutions like this have passed in other parts of the state. Union County has been a state public health leader in the past, now is time to step up again and provide leadership in Union County and ask the Oregon legislature to bring a vote about health care to the people in 2020!
Better Care
for More People 
At Less Cost
The Resolution was referred to a Commission work session on February 14, 2018. 

Local Citizens Support Health Care as a Human Right

Supporters of Oregon Rural Action's Health Care Resolution filled the La Grande City Hall on January 10, 2018. They presented testimony and more than 260 signatures to Mayor Steve Clements and the City Council asking them to request Oregon Legislature bring universal health care to a vote of the people in 2020. The Council will discuss and vote on this request at their February meeting. Union County Democrats support this effort as stated in this plank of their platform:

  • We support Healthcare as a Human Right -- It is a moral outrage for a country as wealthy as ours to leave 60 million people with no reliable access to health care and tens of millions more with inadequate or overly expensive coverage. In addition, despite spending nearly twice as much as other developed nations on health care, our system performs poorly, because the private U.S. insurance bureaucracy soaks up as much as one-third of all the money and pharmaceutical interests overburden America by avoiding price competition. The Affordable Care Act and the proposed American Health Care Act must be replaced with universal, publicly funded Improved Medicare for All HB676.

Join us January 17, 2018, 9:00 am when petitions will be presented at Union County Board of Commissioners, 1106 K Avenue, La Grande
